    I'm with Les on this. I think the difference is maturity. young blackmouth do toss scales just shivering on a cold morning. Mature salmon, not so much. The general necrosis salmon go through in fresh water is rough. Just think about having your whole metabolism geared to homeostasis in salt water than entering fresh... Rough job man. Rough job.

    S..T look at all the gouge marks from nets, seal bites, ect. Mature salmon IMHO, coming straight from the salt, are very hard and strong creatures. That being said- they needed to be treated in a propper way. For pinks I fish small hooks, C&R and just like to turn the hook upside down. When in the boat, I bring the net cause you never know if you're going to hook into something bigger. Man was it pooring on the water yesterday...
