Spent Saturday on the Pere Marquette with these giants. The salmon run in Michigan is a incredible sight. The rivers are full with these majestic creatures. It's basically a giant fish orgy and they have one thing on their mind (spawning). Fisherman line the rivers in hopes of catching one of these beauties. All my fish were catch and release, though it hardly matters, the salmon will all die after the spawn.
