Went out with my brother today hoping to catch a small halibut or something like that from the beach. It was a beautiful sunny day, but the waves were rolling pretty hard onto the beach making it hard to fish our normal beach set-up. We decided to go for it and set up a couple of rods with weights, spin n glos and herring and chucked them out and hung out and relaxed. A while later one of the rods started bouncing hard and he hooked up with a nice silver. After a fun battle he landed a nice 10lb fish. His first fish in Alaska and the first salmon I've caught in the salt from the beach. Great fun and even tastier on the grill for dinner tonight.
