||King Salmon (Oncorhynchus tshawytscha)
also called Chinook salmon. King salmon are one of Lake Michigan's great sport fish. An extremely strong
fighter, they may strip off 200 to 300 yards of line on its initial run. Then, it will bull dog and refuses
to come in. A 20 pound wall hanger can easily wage a half-hour battle. Chinooks are extremely wary and sensitive
to light, so they are not as likely to feed on the surface as cohos.
