    20 ft duckworth
    Picked up this great fighting fish trolling spoons last week, lami koke rod (orange), fish jumped 4 times completely out of the water, stripped 100 ft. before going ballistic,, and that's on top of 100 ft. out to start with. Took 10 to 15 minutes before coming in, net was too small, (32 1/4 inches), hook got caught on outside of net, hauled the whole mess into the boat, fish cut better then half the ocean salmon last year, one of the nicest looking steelhead I've ever caught , meat wise and fight wise. Small eggs inside, my guess winter run before being trucked in. 10.5 lbs. Only bite of the day, but worth the wait.
