Biggest Maine Salmon Ever?
Posted 20 February 2012 - 07:52 AM
So here is the question I am posing to you all- how big is the biggest landlocked salmon you have ever caught in maine? Don't say the place- just the year and the size. It seems that a lot of guys I talk to talk about catching huge salmon years ago, but its been awhile. So I am curious- can't wait to hear from everyone.
Basically, sometimes we all need confirmation that monsters still exist.

Last year I saw a "monster"...does that count for anything ?
Had to be close to 30" and 5 lbs.

The only bigger fish I have landed was a 40 lb catfish, although I did nearly "land" a sockeye that took me way out into my backing. (I use quotes on the word "land" because I definitely wouldn't have removed it from the water)

Could be Ron........didn't get a chance to weigh it. Put enough stress on it for the pics. Would have had to have for supper if I had weighed it.

Landlocked...26" on a #16 Copper John at GLS on my Cecil Pierce boo. My Buddy netted it and it had the tail sticking WAY out of the net as he was using his regular trout net. Nice fish...didn't weight it....wouldn't have kept it even if I could have.
