I have seen several dozen kings over 70# and a couple over 80 in the last 36 years (but nothing recently). I wonder how they determined that fish was 85# if they did not weigh it. Regardless, that is a big king and certainly over 70#. Biggest I ever caught was 65 and it was weighed. I had 2 friends catch 70# fish (on the same day) and another friend caught one 83#. These were all Kenai River fish and unfortunately, I don't think there has been a big one caught in at least 5 years.
