    YEP....."humpys" or "pinks" are found in most of the Great Lakes. We used to catch a lot of them when I chartered for salmon in Lake Erie. Cool fish!

  5. Awesome man!!

    A Rare Catch on the Lake michigan or Green Bay shores.
    More common in Superior or the eastern side of lake Michigan. Lucky dog!
     
  6. When I used to fall fish for steelhead on the North Shore of Lake Superior (MN) we would see quite a few of them on their spawning run. They didn't bite worth a darn in the streams. Sometimes you could reach down and grab one by the tail though.

    I love male pink salmon, but is that a big brown right next to it or a king?

    My dad used to fish Lake Mi. out of Chicago a lot years ago. He took my brother and I out once when we were 7 or 8 years old. My brother caught one that was 8 lbs. but my dad didn't know what it was. He took a pic and then cleaned it. Later we found out what it was and that it would have been the state record by 3 lbs! Oh, well! Makes for a good story. By the way, you never want to fish with my brother. Although he isn't really into fishing, he goes along once in a while and ALWAYS catches the biggest fish. I'm glad that he doesn't hunt or I'd have NO trophys on my wall!
