Morph,

The fact that it has such a well developed kype and not much color wants me to say it is an Atlantic salmon, the spots, the elongated upper mandible, every thing about it says Atlantic. I'm no expert on them and have not caught one myself since 1986. Silvers leap but what you said in the other post sounds like a jaw hooked Atlantic.

Someone will be more sure.

I also think its an Atlantic, though I have sometimes seen sea-run browns have a very silvery appearance and blue cheeks.

I'd rather hunt fish than bait deer any day.

Our atlantic salmon season just ended and I would definately say it is a hookbill(Male) atlantic Salmon. One of the fish i caught looked identical to the one in first post. Another looked like a 16lb brown so approaching spawning they colour up. If I knew how to post pics I would give an example. Hope this helps!
