Today a MASSIVE KING👑 was caught by Pieter Nibbe aboard Hooker IV. The fish weighed in at an absurd 38” and 26.25 pounds. One of the biggest chinooks caught out of the port of Duluth EVER. All of our captains are excited to see these huge fish coming out of Duluth, and can’t wait to see what the rest of the summer brings! 

Happy 4th of July weekend to everyone! Hope you’re having as fun of a holiday as we are. Plenty of good weather, good people, and fish! 🇺🇸
