First ever salmon! from this weekend (lots of pics)
« on: Sep 26, 2006, 05:43 PM »
THIS WAS NOT A CHARTER!

Friday we got up there at 5 and went out at 6. I had my row boat with my dad, and my two uncles and sister were in another rowboat. Fish were jumping all over in the lake. My sister got one in 15 minutes a nice big 36"er. Then about a half hour I hooked up with one and landed my first salmon! A nice silver 25"er. Then my uncle tim got one. About 20 mins later I hooked into my second fish and succesfully landed it. My sister got one more before dark. Then we were out after dark and my sister got a 3rd one. Nothing for an hour from any of us. My dad then hooked into 4 consecutive fish and all were landed. I was agrravated cause I was casting in the same spot and hes getting them right and left. a half hour goes by and then I start hooking them right and left, I had 5 on and landed two all within 20 mins. I was using 12lb test and the others were using 17. Then at about 1115pm I landed my final fish for a limit. It was a 36"er. I was really pumped. Saturday morn, was slow, I hooked 2 and one broke off. My dad also hooked one but a poor netting job by me lost the fish. Then at night it started to pour! My dad and I were the only ones on the lake, and I was without rain gear but up to the challenge. Ive never been rained on so hard. We had two inches of water in the bottom of the boat and tackle boxes were floating around all over. The rain stopped and the fish started jumping again. I hooked two, but lost both. My dad landed one. My uncle came back out and landed one.

Then my dad threw a cast and I said hey you crossed my line, let me reel in! I real mine in, and while my dad was waiting. His lure gets slammed while its resting on the surface! We landed that bugger too. Sunday was way to windy to fish. West wind coming off the lake, with 8 foot waves, that were 30 foot wide. It was quite beautiful watching them slam the lighthouse.  I had one fish take a swing at my lure off the dock, while i fished for 15 mins.

So total
we took 13 fish friday night
I limited

saturday we got 3 more

3 of the fish my dad and I got, missed the craddle in the dark. The lure gets stuck in the net and of course the fish is just hanging there waiting to pull away. all three times my arm ended up all the way in the water to grab those fish. All sucess

With the west wind coming in strong, their was fish jumping all over the place sunday! they were thick!

Oh yea and the best of all, saturday I was fishing for panfish in two feet of water, cause my arm was soar from salmon. I got a nice sunfish and tossed him out for a pike. About 30 secs later my sunfish comes flying out of the water witha salmon hot on his trail. The salmon never got the sunfish.
So here are the long waited for pictures!

Heres 13 from firday night
I took my limit of 5


Didnt make it out sat morn cause we had to clean all of the fish

A saturday morning view

Saturdays night fish!
My dad caught two, and my uncle got one


Sunday was no good for fishing. We packed up and headed home. A good wind was coming off the lake, making waves that were 8-10 feet tall and about 20 foot wide. They were coming up over the pier




Yes those are huge waves- reminded me of a hurricane


We devided our 16 total fish and My family took home 10
Me and my dad spent an hour and a half steaking them

A HALF PINGPONG TABLE FULL!
