I decided to head down to visit my friends in Soldotna and fish the Kasilof because that's where the internet says "they're really biting down here".
I hooked up with http://guidekenairiver.com/ and Scott did a good job, but once again on day one I got
Day two I was fishing with Nigel, right off the bat I hooked into a small trout and while reeling it in a bald eagle swooped down out of nowhere and tried to snatch it. It was the most amazing thing I've ever seen (or so I thought).
I was in the boat with a nice couple from North Carolina and their daughter. (sorry, no pictures of the daughter)
Tom said the biggest fish he ever caught was a 5lb trout, until WHAM!! His rod went down like a ton of bricks.
He fought this thing for a good 15-20 minutes. At times he and Nigel thought he lost the fish and was snagged on a rock because no matter how hard he pulled his line wasn't moving.
After a while when the fish finally jumped the entire boat including Nigel said, "Holy crap, that thing's a monster".
After a few more minutes we had it in the net. 50 inches long with a 28 inch girth. Nigel said he thought it was about 50lbs. Here's the pic, what do you guys think?
Just kidding, that's a 20 pounder I caught.
Here's the big fish.
P.S. who says there's no big fish in the Kasilof?
