Yes, the larger females were released.
The fights today fights today lasted over 20 minutes each. All fish were landed using the RMT JJ-Lamiglass Kokanee rod and we caught all the Macks (and 6 cuts to boot) on RMT kokanee gear.
A few pics for those who are interested
(Sorry the one Mack on the left isn't in full view, it was too heavy for him to lift up all the way for the photo)
