Default Re: IGFA launches world record iPhone app

I remember seeing a cast of the record king in Soldotna on my one and sadly only visit to Alaska to date - HUGE!!!
We were there for silver season and staying on the Kenai. We had bought some cheap spin gear to floatfish egss, etc and one evening one of our group hooked a massive king. We knew it was big but had not idea how big until after an hour or so it breached its head and shoulders out of the water. The collective "oh my god" was quite funny. Had to be 40lb+ at least. Anyway, had it near the net once or twice but it was always in control really and kept kiting back out into the current. After about 2 hours it just decided to turn and head downstream. We could only watch as it spooled him in one long run. Can't wait to get back sometime!
