so wat do you guys think this is? should be real easy.
oh this isnt my fish, i just tailed it.
Hook!! :wallbash: you can put whatever you want in the mouth of a landed fish. However, I am not accusing kingpin of anything (especially since he was just holding the Sockeye and he didn't landed it), I am just wondering why that Sockeye has that scratch on his side, that's all (and the answer is not difficult). Ok, I'll stop here and think that maybe the Sockeye had an accident while playing with his friends.HOOK said:im sure the mouth pic wasnt to show where the hook was G, it was to show the tongue and gums of the fish to help identify it :thumbup: lets not start a snagging issue on here OK
and if the fish wasnt clipped im sure these pics wouldnt have even been posted.
Shane said:This was posted up by KP for a test and to make anglers aware that the Cultas Lake sockeye are in the river around this time of the year. This fish hit a chunk of roe that was being float fished about 18-24" below the surface of the water. The run is about 4-5 feet deep in that spot, it was not flossed (although it does look like it kinda) We werent sure what the fish was during the fight as it was not fighting like a spring or rolling like a coho but was running EVERYWHERE! As KP tailed the fish I already had my camera out and with the shutter setting set to continous all I did was hold down the shutter button as the hook was popped out and the fish released. The run size is only something like 300-500 fish if I'm right, so every fish counts and it would be sad to see a Cultas sock bonked thinking its a coho.
THE SCRATCH IS FROM A SEAL Giuseppe!!!!! See the other teeth marks that are lighter? Oh and there's a seal in the canal now :-\
