    That’s a pink salmon. Probably a female.

    Was it about 2 lbs?

    Pink salmon? whats it doing in the Manistee? Thats like finding a sparkplug in KingTuts' tomb. Did it have spawn? I wouldn't mind catching a few of them as long as they don't upset the balance of things.

    Aren't they the ones that get all misshapen, loose their skin and turn bright red when they are ready to spawn?

    Tiger trout. No way it's a pink with those markings.
