A Bad Day on the Skagit


Will Atlas

Leland, that is a gorgeous fish! Hey the photo is a bit small but I saw the one John sent out via email and I'm thinking that at least some of those injuries are old. How fresh was the wound on the dorsal? It almost looks like he might have had a run in with an orca or sea lion. Think about a fish that large swimming into a gill net, do you think he could make it up to his dorsal with the size mesh they're using? Just a thought, let me know what you think you saw him in real life. Either way, spectacular fish!
