I normally don't post to this board but thought you might enjoy this story/photo. *I was fishing for kokanee at Berryessa on Friday when I caught this bad boy. *I was trolling at 1.4 mph with an ultra lite pole with 10# test line/6# leader pulling a 3.5 inch dodger and a 1.5 inch hoochie down at 50 feet when I tagged this 14# beast. *40 minutes later we put him in the net (barely fit). *One # 8 hook in the center of his tongue was all that held him. *After a picture or 2 we threw him back for another day. *I'm sure he is the top of the food chain in that lake.

Very nice , well done on the CNR ! Bet you thought you had a new world record Kokanee ! I caught a squawfish over 30" at IVR a couple years ago , thought for sure I had a record of some sorts ? 8-)
