What a rush! No flasher, just my splitter with a 5 oz pyramid weight and a 24" leader. Thanks everyone on this forum for all the great advice and information!!Attachment 34366Attachment 34367
    Wait did I read trolling a kwikfish upstream??? I thought fish only hit lures going downstream lol!!! Glad to hear I'm not a freak for trolling like that too and catching fish. Congrats on the fish and many more to come Shainabay10!!
    My biggest worry is that when I'm dead and gone, my wife will sell my fishing gear for what I said I paid for it.

    Congratulations! You will never forget that unique Chinook fragrance as you pulled it into the boat. Also, use the off season break to sell one of your kidneys in order to fund all the equipment and hardware you will be buying from now on.
