Prior to this trip, Lisa had only fished for panfish. Her biggest fish ever was a 12-inch bass. I invited her to go salmon fishing, and she jumped at the chance. After getting to the water at 5 a.m., she was not so excited until she got to fight this 17.5 salmon. “Now she is hooked” -toocooltoocool

My beautiful wife, Jenny, landed this king on the Pere Marquette River “flies only” stretch near Baldwin, Mi. It was the freshest king I had encountered in a river in a long time, not a mark on him! Beautiful fish, beautiful wife, beautiful day! Doesn’t get any better than that! -travisangell

I am 6 months pregnant and decided to go fishing with my husband, threw a shatter bait in the middle of the lake, and had a bite. Got him toward the boat when he jumped out of the water. I knew this was a good fish. Biggest fish I have ever caught in my life. My bass came in at six pounds six ounces. He is 22 inches long. It was a good day. -mandylina

July 2010, 9-year-old Robert Ives of Alaska was on a fishing trip to Valdez with his sister Nevaeh and parents. He baits his own hooks, lets line down, sets the hook, reels them in, but this time was different. It was fighting and deeper than any others. After 15 minutes, the biggest yellow eye they had seen, 25.3 pounds. Not an easy feat for a boy weighing 40 pounds! -Bobives

Fishing with my wife Jill the other night, she hooked this dandy 19-inch largemouth. We could hear it out of the water, and it crossed my line in a flash and ran the Fireline into the split ring on my plug. Everything stayed attached as I manually untangled the mess. We released it immediately after the photo. -crosbychief

I caught this paddlefish below Gavins Point Dam located in Yankton, South Dakota. The fish measured 41 inches from the eye to the tail, so I had to throw it back as it was a “slot” fish. I still had a fun time landing it though! -tsteichen

Trolling out on Lake St. Claire in Olympia, WA. I am pretty new to fishing so when I felt something hit my line, I figured it was a little one like we had been catching all day. Finally got it to the boat and was surprised as hell. A big rainbow … gorgeous fish! -erinolympia
