The One That DIDN'T Get Away
"Caught July 23rd, 2012, early in the morning in Sunnyside, Trinity Bay, by Jan King of Sunnyside. It was the last fish of the morning and weighing just a hair under 37 pounds, it was a whopper. I wasn't sure I could reel it in, but I wasn't letting my husband help and then take the credit!" Photo submitted by Jan King
