What I've Learned About being A Guide;

Posted 10-12-2014 at 04:40 PM by Hardyreels

When you catch and harvest / kill a king salmon there are a couple rules you must comply with right away to avoid problems. First thing before you forget is dry your hands and get out your license.

Tarpon Day 7= Final Day

About 10 minutes after we arrive on our spot 2 other boat came slowly cruising up and then motor for other waters.
