    Default Kodiak Slabs

    Helped a buddy out last week running the deck for his lodge in Port Lions, what an amazing area with some Kodiak bruisers!

    Depends entirely on the light angle. Everything else about that fish sezz sockeye. Lack of annular rings , thickened caudal peduncle, maxillary length and scale size confirm it.

    Going to have to disagree on this one. Is the black mouth a light angle as well. When zoomed in I don't know how the silver on the tail could be light angle. Also the beady little eye is a dead give away.

    A dead giveaway for what?

    Put your cards on the table and give the fish another name.

    I'm betting that between them the guys on the Viking have decades of fish gandering on tenders, seiners and setnets, not to mention sport fishing on their own and chartering. Pics can be vague, but the crew had no reason to mis-identify.

    Small coho. Show me a pic of a sockeye with a small eye, silver on its tail, and a black mouth.

    Sorry for highjacking your thread dan.

    Left most fish in this image seems to have a black lower jaw, while the other three don't: http://www.adn.com/article/20120718/...-summers-blues

    I would bet that opening the two salmon up, if the "red" were actually a silver, the meat would tell the tale.
