A fine Searun Cutthroat all netted up and ready for release.
“Holy %$# that’s a seal!” Moments after hooking up, this large searun cutthroat shot across the surface of the water, a large spotted bogy hot on its tail. All thoughts of landing the fish gone, I stripped line off my reel to slack line and give the fish a chance at freedom from becoming a seals lunch. My plan worked, and minutes later the fish was cradled in my catch and release salmon net. That was a narrow escape. -Nick
