Canadian King Salmon Record

How about this for a giant-sized king!

A new Good Hope Cannery Resort at Rivers Inlet in British Columbia sport fishing record chinook was caught on Sunday that weighed about 83.3 pounds.

Guide Tyler Mills got first time angler Deborah Whitman-Perry into the catch of a lifetime and it was the first chinook she’s ever caught.

Whitman-Perry was fishing off Marker 16 when the rod was slammed, and after a one-hour fight the huge king was landed for some quick pictures and then released.

On the same day another 72 pound king was caught and released as well as others in the 30 and 40 pound range.
