Finally went out for salmon for the first time in Bluerunner Sportfishing. Reports were slow but we went out with a lot of optimism. Ended the day with a fish per rod. Here's my first:


I had 2 other hook ups, one the same size as this that broke my reel seat and got away when I was trying to fix it. And another so big (I swear), it snapped the line from my leader as it got a foot away from the deckhands net... We both saw it and it was easily bigger than the one I landed. Everyone was consoling me after that and I was definitely bummed.

I guess that's what I get for using a cheap rod. After when I got home my wife said "I told you to buy a good rod!" as I decided to test my luck with the cheap rod.

She said I should go again in September :D

the big one got away, but that is still a sweet fish!

You got into some fish and that's what it's all about! Sorry you lost the others, but at least you didn't get the skunk!
