just right

A couple of salmon of the right size made a great morning for this family from high country .  The first two hooked were too big , then the next too small , and then just right .

a short afternoon trip for father and son

Jim has been fishing for years but we have to keep this trip short and comfortable . There was lots of action for him and for his son Tom .

  Hey, a photo with the fish clear out of the water ! 

 This was a nice reunion for these fellows .

among the islands

Carter really understood the hunt .  I picked him up from the Super Island dock and headed to the first choice spot .  After half an hour of no bites and not much for clues , we picked up lines and moved a little way .  Ah , stuff on the sounder .  Herring , and dogfish , maybe salmon.  Trolling , trolling . Potential looks good , and then,  thump, thump, yes , there's the bite .  We stayed and searched around the little islands and had pretty darn good action. As usual we took measurements and tissue samples . All alone .
