Felt good to hit the big water for the first time this year. Good fish and good start to the year.

Nice set up on that kayak. You gotta be pretty nimble to operate all that gear I imagine.

Do you not bleed out the salmon while you drag him on that rope? I know many outfitters that do that. They cut under the gills to allow the blood to drain. Supposed to make them taste better...??

Again congrats.

I put them on a stringer then attach them to my anchor trolly. They swim under my kayak for the remainder of the time I'm out there. I keep em alive. Once I get back to shore they are pretty much at full life again. That's when I bleed em. I try to keep em alive and fresh until the very last moment

You have to have a system down. If the rigger rod fires I have to get that dipsy rod out and away before I can even start the fight. They will turn you around and cross your lines if you don't. It's been quite the learning curve over the years.
