Species: 
Char, Arctic
Location: 
Nuvuk Islands, Qikiqtaaluk Region, Nunavut, Canada
Date Caught: 
Sunday, August 8, 1982
Notes: 
Caught in salt water on my favourite lure: size #7 gold Rapala Countdown. I only had time for a few casts at the Nuvuk Islands char spot as I was camping elsewhere at Digges Island, an offshore seabird island with minimal fishing opportunities - third cast and BANG this fish was on. This area was being intensively fished with gill nets so I don't know what's left now.
