Jack Spring! Congrats maxmagic on your first salmon...It's probably good karma that you released it anyways... ;) If you want to sharpen up on your identification skills, check out the "Coho and springs" thread in this section...I think it's on the 2nd page of freshwater discussion...

Congrats!

Max,

We all scratched our heads over our first salmon. No worries. But just to be on the safe side, if you're not sure - release it.

It's not woth your personal grief to keep a fish that you weren't sure of.

The first one is the toughest to catch - the rest will come much easier now. :thumbup:

Black gums. Springs are the only salmon with black gums iirc. That's definitely a spring. Congrats on your first salmon! Therewill be many more :happy: :beerchug:

Lol. I remember my first. Me and my dad were trying our hands at coho. Had no idea what we were doing. I hooked into something big, and 30min later, reeled in a huge (especially to a 13 year old kid at the time) fish. It had the adipose fin, so I was trying to get the hook out. Some guy in boat yells, "that's a spring, you can keep that!" really? BONK! to think i almost let my first salmon ever go. weighed in at 37 inches long and 27 pounds.
