Last week, the Alaska state record for sport-caught pink salmon (or humpy) was shattered—two days in a row, Alaska Dispatch News reports. On Aug. 22, Thomas Salas, a California resident, landed a 12-pound 13-ounce pink salmon near Big Eddy on the Kenai River. Salas almost threw the salmon back but relented when a friend told him it may be a record. The next morning, Salas took the fish to the Alaska Department of Fish and Game office in Soldotna, where it was confirmed as the new state record. The previous record was a 12-pound 9-ounce pink caught in 1974.
