I had more fun last night loosing 2 big salmon that I played with for over 30 minutes a piece. The first one hit my plug and came about 2-3 foot right out of the water and he was a big one, after about 30 minutes of playing him he took off and broke my leader off. The next one broke my line after about 30 minutes. I only casted out about 8 times total. It was lots of fun and the first one hit hard and pulled me right to the edge of the dock where I went up against a dock piling for support. I'm more used of catching them about 8-15 lbs these fish were a lot bigger and fought a lot more. I have caught a lot of salmon before but this was the most fun and I didn't even get the fish.

In the river Kevin? The other night at dusk I went down to Walstrom's by the bridge and watched them jumping all over. Behind your boat there was a lot of activity, even thought a few of them were going to leap right into the stern of your boat.
