Slamming salmon: mid-summer chinook action on Lake Ontario

While there were scattered and occasionally heavy showers during the first part of the trip, the skies cleared by early evening. Managing editor Bob Sexton caught this beauty chinook as the sun began to set. Thanks again to Steve Rennalls and Scott Richardson for getting us out of the office and onto some great fish. And our verdict as to which style of reel fared better? Let’s just say that any Lake Ontario angler who tries out a single-action reel may never go back to a level-wind.
