Hank Gonzalez had a surprise catch while coho fishing in a surreal scene at Casino Pier on Saturday. He reeled in a very nice steelhead, and earned Fish of the Week honors.
Here’s the Hyde Park man’s story.
A very dense fog had rolled over the pier at Jackson harbor when this 26 inch steelhead hit on my 1/2 oz. orange and silver KO wobbler. Since most of my strikes this time of year are from cohos, I had 6 lb. line on my 8 foot salmon rod. The fight lasted over 5 minutes. This fish didn’t jump too much, but he hunkered down and took a handful of runs, sometimes threatening to break off on the submerged rocks.
