A few favorite images will serve as teasers for the full story:

Nope, I caught one the previous year (2017) in a much, much more difficult adventure here near Seattle. This trip was plenty of work but comparatively easy.

No matter how big the one you just caught is, there's always a bigger one out there somewhere...
