To me the recent spurt of threads and posts regarding the Kenai river can generally be summarized as "dipnetter outrage, blah blah blah" and it is kinda sickening. So much arguing. I understand the desire to affect positive change, but I think there is a lot of negativity involved, and I can't even thoroughly read through some of those threads.
I would like this thread to be primarily photos of people enjoying their sockeye, enjoying the harvest, the cleaning, the consumption. Where else does massive seafood, precious marine nutrients, swim to you from the ocean deep?! Let's just appreciate it and share the positive moments with each other. Please hold your commentary unless it is appreciation of another's post.
I did my copper river run solo this year, on the solstice weekend, and got a bunch of delicious sockeye and had some great conversations with my fellow residents doing the same. This was the most gorgeous sockeye of the bunch. Guess I best him up a little in my fervor.
I really don't care if you scooped them with a net or caught them on a pole or rounded them up from the salt in a set.
