Calkins Washington King Salmon Record 55 lb.

Notebook: Lynnwood angler nets 55-pound king
By Mark Yuasa
Seattle Times staff reporter
Salmon anglers don’t have to jet to Alaska for trophy-sized kings.

Kirk Calkins of Lynnwood can attest to that.

Fishing about 12 miles off Westport, Calkins caught a king that weighed 55.3 pounds. It was caught in 50 feet of water on a downrigger with a Silver Horde Plug.

Fishing had been slow, according to Calkins, with a just a few coho and small chinook here and there.

“It was a little before 11 a.m. when we got our first legit hook-up (and) we played it for a few minutes then … the fish got off,” said Calkins, who was fishing with his wife, Jean, and children Kristin, Zackary and Matthew. “Not even five minutes later the other rod came off the downrigger and we were off to the races, but the (fish) did not stop.”

The fish made a few 100-yard runs away from the boat in large ocean swells and they were unable to see how big it was.

When it got toward the end of the fight, the large fish came out of the water, then went straight back down and sulked.

The big king got near the boat, and Jean netted it in one quick shot.
