I was fortunate to have a coworker ask me to go out on the Mult. Channel with him again on Sat. 4/25. After hours of idle times and drinking all my coffee to stay warm, the rod went down. This fish actually jumped twice (I had never seen a chinook do that) and ran for quite sometime. The fight felt like a much bigger fish; it must have been the warmer water temperatures than a couple weeks ago. My son was pretending he was a great white shark and trying to eat it in one of the photos!
PS - Rhonda, my 5 year old son watches you rather than cartoons every morning before school, and even has us record it in case he misses your 6:25 AM weekday fish tales. He really wants to get on TV, that's why I have posted pictures at home with him rather than on the boat this time and last. It would mean a lot if you could make it happen.
