Here's What The Angler And Her Husband Had To Say About It:

Angler: Avis Pearson of Gamefishin.com

Guide: Bob Hammond of Cascade Guide Service
Lure: No. 114 Dick Nite Spoon 50/50 Nickel/Brass
Fished the Skykomish River on Sat. Sept 22nd with Bob Hammond of Cascade Guide Service.
We were looking forward to a great day of fishing for Silvers and Pinks.
The weather was excellent and a perfect day to catch a world record humpy. We often head out on fishing trips in hopes of getting some great photos for our website gamefishin.com, but who would have thought that on this day Avis would end up with a world record pink salmon, 14.49 lbs, just shy of 14 1/2 pounds. It was an amazing fish!
Our lure of choice was a 50/50 Dick Nite on a diver. Avis was fishing with a Gloomis HS9000-BG GL3 fishing rod, 10 pound Trilene Big Game line and an Ambassadeur 6500-C3 reel.
This fish had it's way with Avis for about 30 minutes, but in the end Avis won and Humpzilla will now go down as not only a WA state record fish but also a World record fish!
Well, Congratulations Avis! You sure seem to know your way with fish! A 14.49 pound Salmon on 10 pound line!
This was such a big deal we had to make a special page on our website just for you!
