Earlier this year my buddy got a 10 lbs. steelhead at Kenosha and he reeled it in in about one minute. No fight, no energy, and it seemed it gave up. I've heard of this from other folks about no fight steelheads.
Does anyone know why some steelheads literally die when hooked? Has anyone had similar experiences?
Fishing has been slow. I got a small jack chinook at Burnham on a Junior Thunderstick last night, but all the snaggin' makes the fishin' difficult.
Good luck and good fishing.
