well, I finally did it!!! Caught my first salmon on a pole! We had tried for 2 days at the Lagoon and last night saw tons of fish coming out of Kachemak Bay over the hill. So my wife said lets go over and try. I saw that everyone was tossing pink pixies so I decided to use a purple vibrex. I was standing next to a family who appeared to have limited out. So as the were leaving I scooted over a couple of feet and by my 5th cast, BAM!!! It was on! I couldn't believe the fight of this sucker.
Back and and forth and every time I got him to within a foot or two of the bank, ziiiiii he would take off. I let him tire out a little and finally got him out of the water. My wife is screaming at me get him higher up hurry!!!! As soon as I was about 12 feet from shore, snap!! There went my line. It was incredible.
