Here’s my client and friend Jim from Ft. Wayne Indiana with an absolute bruiser king salmon from the Muskegon river. I describe Jim as a lucky rabbits foot because the few recent fishing trips he’s had with me last fall and winter he’s landed some of the largest steelhead I’ve ever seen in back to back trips. And now here he does it again this time with a 40+Inch, 29lb monster king salmon that just happened to smash his fly on the swing within the first three casts of the morning. I’ve told Jim, every time you’re in the boat you’re a lucky rabbits foot because you hook one big fish after the another every trip. Hence, the Lucky Rabbits Foot! Congrats Jim. Incredible king salmon! Incredible fight!!
Fresh kings continue to enter the river system daily. Water levels are normal for this time of year with crystal clear clarity.
