    Damn, do you get to go out every day? I didn't think there were that many fish out there. LOL
    Taking off and flying is easy, it's the landings that will kill you.



    Oh Yeah!...Salmon!...Everything else is just practice.

    There are a few salmon out there. Just have to put your time in and get a little lucky.

    You mind posting a pic to give some of us learn other tricks of the game.

They're small pods of 10 /20 fish moving up river fast to get to that cold water below Woodson bridge .... Kwikfish and Roe are your best bets and they're also getting them (snagging)with jigs ...

    Warm... our finder is in the shop. (I know;
    terrible timing.). But... we all swam around noon and while it was cooler than last week, it wasn’t by very much.

    TL;DR seat of the pants thermometer says low-mid 70s. 73ish?
