Looks like an Atlantic with the "x" markins. Either way, great fish and pics

Mouth is wrong for an Atlantic. I'm going with a Brown!
Great looking fish that's a decade maker for sure!!!!

That's a beauty of a LRB!

Great fish! I'm still looking for one.
Nice fish either way, but I'm leaning a little towards an atlantic.

After posting pics of my "first lake run brown" you guys had me questioning whether or not it was actually my "first atlantic salmon." I just assumed it was a brown so I started looking into it a little more. With the dots well past the lateral line, the tail was very squared off (hard to tell in the photo), the mouth was not "pointy" and there are spots on the adipose fin I still feel its a brown. I emailed my pic to Brad Petzke a guide out of Marquette who targets Atlantics in the St. Marys river. He said....
Nice to hear from you! Sweet looking fish man! I can say w 100% certainty that your fish was a lk run brown. They resemble a colored up atlantic & can be confused. The longer the browns are in the river they get some sweet characteristics going. They are of the salmo family. The brown trout is the salmo trutta & the atlantic is the salmo salar-close relatives. Regardless the brown you caught was a nice fish-congrats!
Im feeling better that it was my first lake run brown trout...now I want to go with Brad and get my first Atlantic!

Definitely a LRB. I saw the first pic you had up before you took it down (guessing so no one figured out the spot because of the background in the pic;) ) and from that first pic it was a lot more clearly a brown than the one with it in the water.
Great fish BTW congrats:cool:

in reference to your post,
"Definitely a LRB. I saw the first pic you had up before you took it down (guessing so no one figured out the spot because of the background in the pic ) and from that first pic it was a lot more clearly a brown than the one with it in the water."
Haha, busted. Yea I removed the first pic because within 20 minutes I had 4 PMs asking where that river was and what exact stretch it was on. So I just decided to take away any speculation.

That river isn't much of a secret around these parts anymore. There's another site out in cyberspace that has pretty much brought it right out into the spotlight. That's ok, though, plenty of fish to go around....and mountain bikes, ten-speeds, hypodermic needles, shopping carts, etc.....
Nice fish, BTW!!!

Congrats! How's about some of the details? How'd you earn the hook-up?

Very nice fish. I would love to catch one some day.
Here is a picture of an Atlantic salmon that I caught just for reference.

Nice job, nice fish,
