Default Re: Salmon

I'll try to answer all;

Yes, I use Photobucket. Our forum will not allow you to bring things strait from your desktop to a thread.

A 10' #8 rod will handle kings also, just limit the leader to no more than 20 pounds. I use 15 and land them without breaking the leader. I used to use 25 pound Maxima but was losing fish because I was forcing them in with a 9' 9 weight. Now I use technique rather than brute force and I believe I land them quicker.

It's been since 86 since I was up in the Maritime's. I went three years in a row 83 - 86. I think Cape Breton is one of the most beautiful places I ever saw.
