    Yeah hubby caught one in the Kenai we estimate to have been around 9-10 pounds a few weeks ago. That thing was HUGE! Big hump and dwarfed most other pinks we were catching.

    Yeah, that's a big one alright. Don't know what it is about the Kenai River, but I've caught a few monster humpies there myself silver fishing. I'd wager a couple of them were even bigger than that guy.
