Holy Moses ... I thought this was a big king when I first saw the picture. I was wrong. It is an enormous Coho. I do wonder, however, if testing will prove it a hybrid. I seem to remember one several years ago that might have been a contender for the New York State record until it was tested. The test revealed it was a king/coho cross. Regardless of this beast's lineage ... it is a magnificent fish.
