    Went fishing in the Puyallup River here in Wa. and slayed them. I limited out in under 2 hours. I love this time of year. Now all I have to do is decide how to cook them.

     
  2. Lucky you!!! Nice fish.

    thanks. These are PINK Salmon. They run the rivers here every other year. They pressure can up very nicely.I should catch enough in the next 3 weeks to last the next 2 years

    Looks Good Mike! The Salmon season on the Oregon coast has been really good this year too, with lots of Coho and Chinook being caught. Wish I could have made it down to get some!

    Sorry, but compared to what the wife has been catching recently, those look like bait. JK. Bet they are tasty though.

    Sweet! It's a great time of year!! Get out and fish and smoke! I can't compare in size with all of you but I wouldn't trade a bit with my little brookies! [​IMG]

    Id trade a day of fishing for some brookies like that. I haven't caught those since I was a kid fishing with my grandpa.

    The King Salmon run is about to ramp up here in Michigan.  They've caught a few nice ones in the 28-30lb class so far.  Hopefully I'll get to stock up the freezer.

    Welp.. can't say that we'll ever catch any salmon here... but Snook season opens here in Sept... been closed for 3 years... 1 per day... 27"-32" keeper slot size... all of y'alls are looking tasty...
     
  11. If you run out of room, I have a big freezer and would be happy to help out by providing a good home to your excess Salmon catch! [​IMG]

    I'm hoping to do some salmon fishing myself soon. Probably Ludington area.

    Cool.  I'll be hitting the Manistee area 1st weekend in September and the big lake and river in Muskegon the rest of the time.  Good Luck

    If I didn't have to work, I'd drag my camper up there and have you show me how to do it! I'm a great ocean fisherman but my river skills suck!

    I am so jealous. That looks like a lot of good eating.
