On July 17th, Joel Atchison caught and released the King Salmon of his dreams on the Kenai River in Alaska. The Giant King weighed in at approximately 90 pounds. It measured 58 inches and had a 34 inch girth. The current World Record King was caught in May 1985 by Les Anderson. It weighed 97 pounds 4 ounces also from the Kenai River. Since then, only a handful of Kings pushing 90 pounds have been landed.
