I can't get over how big this fish is. Can't imagine what a thrill it was and the work involved in getting it caught.

I wonder if this could have been some sort of record. I grew up in a family of avid fishers...this blows my mind!

I don't think so. These Chinook salmon grow pretty large. I'll ask!

Doesn't look close to a record catch but maybe a record for Kevin!

Adult fish range in size from 33 to 36 in (840 to 910 mm) but may be up to 58 inches (1,500 mm) in length; they average 10 to 50 pounds (4.5 to 23 kg) but may reach 130 pounds (59 kg). The current sport-caught World Record is 97.25 pounds (44 kg) and was caught in May 1985 by Les Anderson in the Kenai River (Kenai, Alaska). The commercial catch world record is 126 pounds (57 kg) caught near Rivers Inlet British Columbia in the late 70's.[1]
