    After work today, I was going to head out to head out to Saltery creek on the quad. During work I thought it would be better to spend some time with the family. I cancelled the red fishing at Saltery and called the wife to let her know I thought we should head out to Monashka creek. Of course I worked later than I wanted to. When I got home I had to rush everyone out the door to pick up the the durango from the shop (tranny problems). The wife was worried about dinner and this and that...

    Great choice! We got there an 2 hours before high tide and dinked around for a bit. My wife caught an 18" jack (you can see it in the pic) fairly quick. Nothing for a while after that. My daughter was trying to catch baby dollies with the roe we had. After losing a bunch I told her and my son they couldn't use it anymore unless they were gonna catch "real fish". Saw a bunch (over a dozen, this is a small creek with a terminal fishery) of kings running up and down.

    BOOM!! feeding frenzy! 5 people hooked including me! I picked mine up with a red bladed silver (swallowed!!) vibrax and the daughter got excited. I casted roe on a bobber for her a few times before she wanted to do it herself. She made a perfect cast. I watched her bobber go under and stay under. I went to help her set the hook and and it was on! I kept the pole from being ripped from her hands and she worked the fish in reeling and tugging. She got the fish on shore and was ecstatic!

    I think we caught the biggest fish out there that evening... They were both about 33" 16 to 18 pounds...

    That's Great!, I love how kids hug their fish, my son hugged his first salmon, your picture reminded me of that time a couple of years ago. They grow fast! Cherish the memories.
