Some good tips in here!
Ok trollers pay close attention: You think you know what’s going on down around your downrigger? Think again! I shot this video last summer and fall while chasing rainbows, king salmon and kokanee in various lakes around Nor Cal. Interesting stuff…
Okay, this is getting ridiculous. In March, Oregon’s Wallowa Lake gave up the U.S. record kokanee, an 8.23 pounder…and then in May, it surrendered an 8-pound, 13-ouncer in May.. Now, this: On June, 14 Ron Campbell of Pendleton, OR caught what should be the new all-tackle world record koke, a 9.67 pounder! WTF???
Pendleton’s Wallowa beast measured 27 3/4 inches long and had a girth of 17 3/4 inches and just topped the current IGFA World Record, a 9.6 pounder caught in British Columbia back in 1988. After the paperwork goes through, it should be recognized as the new record…that is until somebody catches a 10 pounder!
Read more about this from our friends at Northwest Wild Country.
On March 24, a giant, king kong sized kokanee that weighed 8.23-pounds (yes, that’s pounds, not ounces!) was taken from Wallowa Lake in northwestern Oregon by Wan Teece of Enterprise, OR..and I swear this is not an April Fool’s joke!
Teece hooked the ridiculously large koke while trolling a flasher and blade rig. The 26.25 x 16 incher crushed the Orgeon state record by over a pound and is believed to be the largest kokanee ever taken in the U.S. (the world record 9-pound, 6 ouncer was caught in Canada).
