Michael McKinney caught this one in the Yaak in early May from a kayak in three to four feet of water using no steel leader and fourteen pound test.  “She pulled me around for a good 15 minutes,” Mckinney stated.

This beat measured 45 inches from head to the tip of the tail with a 21-inc girth.  It weighed 26.8 pounds on two different scales.  Wow!  Nice work, Michael!
