According to the ofah, the record Great Lakes coho is 29.22 lbs, did you realize this could be a new provincial record? Fish weights also have to be done on land and not in a boat to get an official weight submitted. Congrats to both the angler and guide, what an awesome catch, Iíve never landed a coho yet, very jealous angler writing this here 👍

Stunning! My favourite great lakes fish by far, never know what a coho is going to do when its hooked.... curious to know if it jumped at all? Might be hard to get all 29 lbs of itself out of the water, but wouldnít put it past a ĎHo

WOW! That is a monster.

On my trip to the Queen Charlotte Islands in 2004, I got one that was 15lbs and thought that was big.

Got one off Bluffers 2 years ago--5 lbs.

As far as I can recall ,Lake Ontario holds the World Record for Coho salmon, much to the chagrin of BC.

I cannot recall the exact weight but am pretty certain it passed the 29 mark as this would be the 4th I have seen with that weight


oogie..for June this a huge fish

Noted Shank, a truly impressive once in a lifetime fish, mightíve put on another few lbs over the summer and crushed the record. My understanding is that coho have a longer lifespan than kings, not positive about that, but imagine the possibilities. It would be nice to have a few more of them in the mix, I remember when ontario stocked them, they love the slow backdrifts in the river, they would come 5 ft across a run to hit a yarn fly, unlike a king that has to be constantly provoked, didnt hurt that they pushed as the snow flied after the combat king fishermen were done either

an amazing fish for sure. I have had similar experiences with 2 of them smashing a cheater line and flipping into the boat before anyone got to a rod


Unforgettable


just looked up world record from NYS in 2012 at 33.4 pounds

NYS record is 33.7 pounds due to different weigh in stations and organizations
