I wish I were fishing...

My dad can make a killer salmon by soaking cedar wood planks in water and then placing the fish on the cedar to cook/bbq.....

Nice fish!

Thanks. the man was around 6' ish, the fish was close to 25 lbs. It was released - a prespawn female.

That is huge! That would be great smoked, pity he had to release it, though I understand why.

he didn't have to release it, but there are some considerations, prespawn condition the least of them. these are top predators in a lake with a checkered past. Mercury and other toxic contaminants build up in the fatty tissue over time. This being a fully mature female, means she is around seven years old. It is better to keep the smaller, immature fish for eating, removing all the fat and lateral line from the fillet. Also, removing at least a half inch of meat from the body cavity. There is also the issue of preserving trophy fisheries. By harvesting the smaller stock and releasing trophies, studies have actually shown that you are affecting the gene pool and allowing fishes with a genetic proclivity to large adult size (all other things being equal) to spawn increase the year/size class of the fish. Lake Ontario is too big a lake for recreational fisherman to have any impact, but in smaller lakes, the impact can be measured.

And nice to see you BB ;)
