    Re: A Real "fishy" Tale

    Interesting tale.

    We lost a salmon on a stringer tied to the boat a few years back.
    Here they come!

    Possible but the left-behind stringer wasn't a cheap through-away and I payed no attention to it's sex at the time. Just have never figured that out.

Didn't even get my line in the water and we've got another one into the box. Now what? We've got two and only caught one. I made the decision to head back to the dock and head home and that's what we did. We may have had the boat in the river that morning for maybe 45 minutes. What an outing! So folks, who left that beautiful ready to grill salmon tied to the dock? If it was yours, thank you very much it was delicious!
