Sean, nice pics.  I can't believe the size of the fish you guys caught!!!  Yeah, bet that will make your dinner table smile.  The fireweed is beautiful, eh?  Have a wonderful day, beautiful life.  Cindi

Cool!  That makes me look forward to this fall when our salmon run.  Looking at that first picture, however, we only have baby salmon here... :roll:

Thanks guys!

Yeah the salmon up there were huge.  We were letting fish go that would be definate "keepers" here in the Puget Sound.  Like 15 to 40 lbs was considered small.  I kept my 30lb in the pic cause it was the last day.  The King salmon fishing wasn't as good as the years before I guess.  But the sockeye fishing was crazy!  Your line wasn't in the water for more than 10 seconds before you had a 10lb + sockeye on.  Cant wait to go back someday.

My dad's was 57 lbs.  Mine was 30 lbs.

We had a blast.  Once in a life time trip.
