Though the club began in 1979, no official records have been kept over the years as to biggest fish caught during the Jolly Hookers events (derbies, NDOs, and special events where there is official weighing of fish caught). Beginning in 2015, records were kept and here are the biggest fish in the various categories:
Kokanee –Bob Schmidt, 8/12/16 Lake Oroville – 3.07 lbs
Landlocked Salmon – Gary Voet, 6/25/19 Lake Oroville – 4.82 lb. King
River Salmon – . Bob Schmidt 10/16/2018 Sacramento River 26.15 lbs
Striped Bass – Dan Vasquez, 4/12/16 Delta – 24 lbs
Trout – Alex Alexander, 3/17/15 Camanche Reservoir – 9.15 lbs
Size isn’t important….unless you’re a fisherman.
