New personal boat record steelhead!

This past week I was able to get out a handful of times between days with high winds and small craft advisories. The first day, Sunday I took a run out by myself and ended up with two nice coho's but it didn't take long for the wind to pick up and before I knew it I was trying to pull lines in 4-6' waves. Monday the winds died down and i got out for a quick two hour trip with a good friend and even though we didn't set lines until 0830 we still managed some quality fish including a new record for my boat with a 14lb steelhead that crushed my spin doctor and Pro King fly off a mag dipsy. This steelhead cracked my dipsy rod just like a huge king and once it got to the back of the boat I had to do a double take once I saw what it was. That was the icing on top of the cake for the day but we did manage one 6lb chinook and a healthy 4lb coho (which hit the same set up as the steelhead.)
