MA Salmon (pics)

Went trolling for salmon here in Western Massachusetts Sat. afternoon and I cought the biggest fish of my life. He was just shy of 30 inches and weighed about 9.5 lbs. What a fight this fish put up! I have never had so much fun catching and fighting a fish as I had here. I also caught a 21.5" salmon as well. My brother in law had a couple on, but they shook off. He did catch a nice rainbow though...

Interesting. Must be an atlantic salmon I presume? Looks like a hybrid between a brook trout (the spotting) and a snub nosed silver salmon (the head).

They are "broodstock" salmon. They are all stocked. Farm raised. Unfortunately, we don't have any wild natural ones around here.
