    Default Who can we thank for this year's wonderful run ???

    According to other posts on this website, everyone is catching tons of fish. So if there's no problem, there's no one to blame.

    So who do we thank?

    Someone suggested to me that the high numbers of Kenai reds could have been partially due to the quake over in Japan. The Tsunami destroyed a ton of boats, so less pressure from the Japanese fisherman may have increased the number of fish making it back to the river. Not too sure about the percentage of fish normally taken by the Japanese, or where they fish for that matter, so maybe this wouldn't have much to do with it, but the theory seems like it could make some sense... Im not sure!

    Maybe the huge run on the Kenai is due to the new sonar system.

    I heard from a source that the high numbers of Kenai reds was actually an elaborate illusion put on by the Japaneese to fool the commercial fisherman in alaska to lower the price of our scarce red salmon. I actually dont know if this theory is true, or what a red salmon is... I dont even know where Japan is, but it makes sence to me so...

    Can we somehow blame this on Bush for not getting more or something?

    Yea- I questioned that too. When you start getting odd readings - in this case a record high day - one should always question the new measuring device. I learned this the hard way in over 40+ years of making measurements of all sorts of things

    I want to thank myself. All the taxes I pay in licensing(comm, sport, guide, etc), tobacco tax(Copenhagen tastes good), fuel(I drive and fly all over this great state to fish both comm and sport), alcohol(Love me some IPA and High Life), plus I live here so I probably pay through the ass somewhere else and dont even know it! I have helped pay for this glorious run! Hallelujah for ME!

    I agree, but some of the credit goes to our world class team of fisheries biologists, that are the envy of the world.

    I'll go back to a thread I posted a month ago: Thank you, Fullbush!

    (I should add a thank you to potbuilder as well, since he was a contributor to PWSAC during the years that these fish were reared.)
