    Default Question about spawning salmon

    Hi guys, I was wondering if you could help explain something to me regarding spawning salmon.

    I hooked a king today, and when I got it in the net it was leaking white milky like liquid from the anus area.

    Does anyone know what this is? Still looked like a healthy fish and very strong.

    Thanks in advanced.

    That would be "milt" (semen) the stuff the old boy was going to use to fertilize his girlfriends eggs in the redd (nest), had he been allowed to.

    Thanks!

    That's what I thought, but just wanted to make sure.
