    Only get farmed salmon down here[​IMG]so you can imagine the difference,ours is more like a steelhead farmed in Tasmania. The colour of the fish you catch is mindblowing[​IMG]I eat as much as I can get when we come to Canada,developed a love for what the Canadians call Indian candy. Will work out a way to do something with local wild fish sooner or later. You must be a pretty good fisherman to boot.

    Rich, you are a mean bear.  These poor guys down here in the lower 48 haven't been exposed to such salmon goodness until you showed up.  Why, I do believe some of them are into Salmon Overload.  If you don't have your Guide Ticket yet, you ought to get it because I think there's going to be a rush of SMF'ers heading up to Willow to detox over some beautiful red meat.
     
  11. Got to love Alaska. You know you're making every one in the lower 48 jealous Rich.. [​IMG]

    Where did you catch those? 

    We are still working on the reds from dip netting this year.  55 fish in one tide!  Took longer to clean them than it did to catch them.

    Got a bunch canned and vac packed, still pulling them out of the freezer to smoke up on my days off. 

    Now to get some silvers to add to the stash and we will be set for the year.

    I miss being on the coast and catching salmon. All we have is lil ol stinky trout here in MT [​IMG]. We caught a bunch last weekend and I did a dry brine on them also, they turned out really good.

    So do you smoke with no heat then???? I smoked my trout with my GOSM set on low (about 130*) until my AMNS ran out of dust. I would say about 6 hours, I really didn't pay attention to time.

    Looks amazing!
