Two men with fish on boat

Dr. David Wands, Olympia, Wash.: I achieved not only a personal record but the all-time Hoodoo Lodge record when I caught a 47-pound king salmon near Cold Bay on Alaska’s Aleutian island chain early this summer. It measured 48 inches in length and 25 inches in girth, and took about half an hour to carefully bring it to the net. The photo shows my guide and friend Tony struggling to hold the salmon for the shot before we released it. And of course I plan on going again next summer! (Fall 2018)
