J.W. Secrest, a commercial fisherman in Alaska, stopped in at the Sweetwater Dairy Queen to share his catch - a 50 pound King salmon (half grown) - with the morning coffee drinkers on Tuesday, Aug. 14.
J.W., who winters in Fisher County, caught the salmon in Kenai, Alaska. He catches 60 to 13,000 pounds of salmon a year, which includes all five species.
Last year, J.W. also managed to catch an 800 pound shark with a 900 ft long by 15 foot deep net.
