Anytime!

I'm sure fin clips are missed sometimes at stocking.  And, yes, I guess natural repro is possible at surprising places here.  I've certainly seen them going through the motions.



Thanks for your reply Jim!

I think it's possible that some are missed? I've watched king salmon fins clipped and I can see how easy it would be to miss some as they are quite small when clipped.

And like you said maybe one year class could be no clipping?

OTOH I don't know about atlantics, but even here in the midwest with poorer stream and river conditions it's been found there has been more natural reproduction than intially thought. In fact so much more that planting numbers were reduced.

Thanks, Randall.

Nick is spot on with his pick of the rod I used....Fenwick Eagle UL 7.5 feet.  The king salmon was a battle in a small pool below a low head dam.  As it turns out, I shattered that rod last week when a split shot rig nailed the tip on a cast.

The evidence is building on the origin of the landlocks, but it will be difficult to be certain without a few more pieces.


what a report! way to go Jim, great success in NY it looks like, those 'bows must've been a blast and I can't even imagine the King :O I know you mentioned 8 lbs test, but what rod weight/action did you get that (king salmon) on? Looks light!

Grats on the Maine landlocks too, those are solid.  And you've greatly piqued my interest with their origin!  8)

Anyone know if all the new motors have built in warnings? This 1 has a high-water temp, low oil pressure and a general check engine warning. I'm really happy about that. No more worries of a thermal nuclear melt down like previous motor. Automatically drops RPM to 3000 or less until problem is corrected. Gives you a "limp mode". Won't have motor on boat until spring but from what I've read in the manual thus far I'm going to be really pleased.

Looks great, I see I'm all out of summer sausage, gonna have to make some more. Electric grinder is shoulder saver, love mine.

For sure! I used to do 100+ burger or sausage at a time with a #10 grinder. Got a 1 1/2hp #22 grinder from cabelas. Don't miss the old days a bit.
I found enough meat for a 10 pound batch of baloney hurried in the freezer when I was making room for the new batch. Saturday will be busy. I have to grind a deer in the morning and do the baloney after that. Plus try to hunt some.

Good luck everyone.
