I don't get to see many fishing shows as I don't have cable. I had the opportunity to see one today while I was working out. It was a show about fishing Kings on the Nushagak (sp?). It was some Pro-staffers from Bass Pro Shops fishing out there with one of the lodges. They were catching numerous kings and removing many of them from the water to take pictures and other photo opportunities. And by removing them from the water I mean lifting them by the tail and belly above the boat and taking pictures.
On the Kenai you would have a ticket in a second for doing that, do they have the same rule (law) about lifting King salmon out of the water on the Nushagak?
