I just posted on Salmon anglers online that a 20lb Kelt- yes you heard that right , took me 15min to land!!! She kept her head down and sideways to the current and I couldnt budge her. She was the exception. If you go past 15 min on ANY fish, you are 1- into an exceptional fish. and 2- an ego maniac!!!! Decide when Salar strikes!!!
