Default A very cold friday morning

29 was the number Friday morning, I'm not talking about the number of hookups I'm talking about the temp. After a cold and fruitless start A.J., (aka gatortransplant) had a number of firsts. First up A.J hooked a big salmon, who was never to be seen from again, we had a double on, I landed a small Steelhead. A little while later A.J. landed two Browns, another first. I got a Steelhead hen that although wasn't big, ran me around for quite some time. I hooked what looked like a very big salmon, it almost took me to my backing when it dicided to let go. All in all a very good day.

Mike

Man, that is good fishing! To have three different species of fish of that caliber in one day on the same river; you guys make me sick! (with envy)

29! You had us beat by 10 degrees. It was 19 when I left for fishing at 0915. Looks like you had a great time. It did warm up to around 40 here though.

For a first those brown trout AJ caught may spoil him for life! All nice fish and a good report on the day.

I agree with Ard, AJ is in for some rough days if he expects those fish to be the norm. I am pleased to see forum members getting out and fishing together, that should be a big part of what this forum is. In a about a month I will bring back the "fishing with forum members" thread and we can add this years collection of get togethers. Mike what brand of dog turd is that your smoking?

Good to see the two of you having such a productive day.

Dave
