OK, I know this one is controversial:
A near 27# silver was recorded by hook and line in Icy Strait this year. However, I caught an extremely large silver last week in a lightly fished remote area. Over the last decade or so, I have caught several like this; not many - but more than one. This makes me wonder, if there are more whoppers out there than the records indicate, as people who keep the fish may not bother with the process needed to report a world record (or even top 10), and many - myself included - release most fish.
What is the largest silver (by weight) that you have caught? (I'll post mine a little later; when I have properly evaluated the photos for girth and length - didn't have a tape measure, so I put the rod/net in the photo for reference; I don't want to sell a fish story, but it is very large fish).
And do you think a 30# silver is out there?
