(Rick with an absolute monster hen Muskegon River King Salmon)
Here’s Rick’s monster hen and the “tale of the tape” with this girl weighing in well over 30lbs. Absolute monster! She took over 25 minutes to bring to the net and as you can see she’s eating very well! This hen is setting the bench mark for the salmon population this early fall that can only be described as…..massive! This year’s salmon class is averaging 23 to 30+ pounds so far with the ones we’ve landed. Huge kings! It’s really nice to see strong evidence the alewife (salmon’s primary baitfish food source) might be making a come back in Lake Michigan. These Kings are eating very well!
