The fish were hard to find but after about 5 hours of no hits 6:30 a.m.-12:00 p.m), all heck broke loose. Couldn't get rods back in water. Went five for six on nice bows (throwing one spunky one back.) All 6 hits came in about an hour from same spot. 60-80 ft. They do not like pink.
Awesome day on the water.

Nice report, and while I could be wrong, it sure looks like you've got a pink, a coho, a steelie and a small king in that picture?

I am almost sure that there is no pink in that group. After catching over 50 of them this year I think I cant get the image of a pinks out of my head. Nice catch either or though....

Look at the first one on the left. Looks like a pink too me. Darker back, and a slight hump to it.

When boated they looked alot different than they do in pic. They all had the distinctive charcoal top with light bottom steelie look. They had nice greenish/tealish backs. No kings or pinks for sure. Im no expert though.

Pinks do not get that big in Lake Huron. Also, scales on a pink come off very easy, almost with rubbing your thumb on it.

Dude, those two middle fish are salmon and they look like coho. The outside fish are chunky steelies.

Nice catch man!

I looked at the downloaded pics on my computer, rather than on my phone and the 2 middles r salmon. Then i called my buddy who took them home to clean. He said the 2 smaller were diff colors of meat. One had bright red meat and one watermelon color. So i am guessing the 2nd from left is a coho and 3rd is a king. Wish i wouldve looked closer at them! Lesson learned!

Balls
love your detective skills:). He wasn't caught in 60-70, but very close.
I looked at the kamloop strain and you could be dead on. Didn't know id'ing fish could be this hard.
