    28 lbs would have easily won it! How well did the huntress do in the tournament?

    Sounds good, got had been pretty quiet, thought you were just trying to keep a few secrets hidden before the tourney! Always look forward to your reports. Any shark trips coming up?

    Very cool. Can't wait to hear the shark report. I got one on a charter back in 2000 out of seward, strong fish. Ate great too!

ID:	92837Big weather and big waves today aboard the F/V Huntress, 4/1/17.. but with a bit of fancy throttle work and determination we were able to get some big smiles.. this crew was great and showed the patience that it takes to put salmon on the boat when conditions were what they were... good luck and be safe👍

ID:	92868Found a nice batch of fish today 4/4/17 aboard the Huntress, but the big boy was caught by 1 of our lady anglers !! Again!! She has been a resident of AK for 42 years , been on a few salmon charters before. " not saying any names" and today, she boated her first king salmon ever😍!! No need to push this one out to the camera!! Was a true hawg! And it was feeding on grey cod!!! Guess I should use bigger bait😇.. Happy we could help her catch her dream fish... cheers
