For, I'm Eric Granstrom. There's honestly few thrills in this life that get my blood pumping more than the feel of a king salmon on the other end of a fishing line. Actually, even before you feel it, there's the bite. And it doesn't matter if you're holding the rod when it happens or it's in a holder, that hit and violent jerk on the rod tip and the whiz of the drag as you set the hook is simply fantastic. Then there's the run. King salmon have shoulders. They usually like to stay low and run away. If you're on a river, it's usually a run upstream. If you're lucky enough to have someone else manning the kicker motor, they can maneuver the boat while you try to catch up reeling. If you're in tight with other boats, the pressure's on you to keep the drag pretty tight and get the fish to the boat. Then there's the battle near the boat when the King gets an eyeful of what's above the water. Then that sudden sizzle of line again and tug-tug-tug as it tries to distance itself. Ah, to catch a king. Thrilling! Until next time, Good Fishing!
