1 fish caught | Lunker: 21lb Chinook Salmon using a Spinnerbait

Using a Mepps Flying C 7/8 oz Chartrues body/Silver Blade spinner hooked this 21 pound hen. She took the lure and headed down river for her first run. I made sure the drag was set all the way down and started taking back line. Got her back to the boat and she ran to the middle of the river and into the current for her second run.  I managed to get her turned and headed back to the boat and started taking back some line again. That's when she made another long run up river and I was not sure I was going to stop her.  She slowed down and I was able to turn her again headed back to the boat. 10 minutes later she was in the net. That was the TUG that dreams are made of.

1 fish caught | Lunker: 20lb Striped Bass (Striper) using a Herring

Fishing out of Freeport on a beautifully sunny day. Actually fishing for Salmon when my rod doubled over. Set the hook and held on as line screamed off my reel. Hoping for a large Salmon, I was fishing a rigged herring, I was pleasently surprised by a Striped Bass. Measured at 33 inches. My scale was to small to get a weight but it was at least 20lbs. Released alive and well with my thank you for a good fight. Otherwise quiet day with no other fish caught.
