Coming home to Wisconsin for the weekend, I decided to meet up with the old neighborhood crew to fish my first King (Chinook) Salmon run. This fish had some serious horsepower and walked me downriver at least a mile. It was a surreal experience, especially being in the heart of Milwaukee and this won’t be my last King run, that’s for sure.
