"Hey Cory, My wife's salmon was 15 pounds, The wire bender is a Boggs tackle maker from Barlow's.com, But mine has been customized so I can make a 16 in. inline spinner. It helps when your friend is a machinist."
Good to hear from you again. I like those double-blade bucktail spinners. What do you catch with them? I was out trout fishing on flies this morning and lost a couple nice ones due to my leader breaking. I gotta stop buying 4-lb stuff. Don't get me wrong; the fish weren't that big, I just have a bad habit of setting my hooks a bit too hard hahaha. I did came back with a couple though.
I was out on the 22cd and found a bunch of big ones hanging out in some 60F water in some back coves, But they just were'nt feeding I tried everything, live bait, dead bait, wounded bait, every lure in my bag nothing. But it wont be long now. I have caught them in other places but nothing big yet.
