The standing Alaska pink salmon record lasted 42 years until last week!.  The monster weighed 12 pounds 9 ounces and was landed on the Moose River.  Earlier last week the long standing record was broken with a 12 pound 13 ounce pink caught on the famous Kenai River.  However, this Alaska record only lasted 3 days.  Robert Dubar landed a 13 pound 10.6 ounce which measured in at 32 inches and was also caught on the Kenai.  The current world record pink is a beast weighing 14 pounds 13 ounces and was caught in the state of Washington.  Pink Salmon run every other year flooding numerous rivers.  During the spawning season pinks get their famous hump back which also gives them the name humpy!  They are a blast to catch on light tackle and can be had cast after cast.
