removed_by_request Only because of where we live. If we lived near them we probably would have caught a couple by now.

removed_by_request Aren't many coasters around, besides they are char and not salmonids so you could take them off the list.

removed_by_request one word.. North. your buddy M.S. wrote it up many moons ago.

removed_by_request The Garden is an amazing river, gets way too much pressure now.

Guess a Superior one day grand slam would be Atlantic, Steel, pink, king, and Pinook. Funny thing is that goal is possible believe it or not.

Lake Superior sustains an adequete population of pinooks. Rivers such as the Garden can have good numbers of them at times. Both kings and pinks spawn in the Garden, and the numbers are enourmous. Sometimes the result will be the genetic cross of this Pinook!

removed_by_request They have them in Lake Superior either the Ste. rapids or Garden river. They run fairly large and are around when the kings and pinks hit the streams.

Lots of guys catch them up there timing is the key.

pmflyfisher Are the Pinhooks in Lake Superior only ?

I don't think I would recognize one if I caught one would think it was a deformed salmon of some type, and want to get it off my line ASAP .

Pinooks are a male Pink salmon x Female Chinook hybrid.
Hooked one in the Manistique(about 6#), had it to my feet before it tore loose
Michigan Fisheries recognizes the cross & requires 15# for a Master Angler Award. That little one tore me up, can't imagine 15#'s......

pmflyfisher Bob,

It looks like your the man, however to be a GLs slam would have to be caught from GL waters.

I think I know where you will be heading to get the slam.

Whats a pinook ?
