My wife's special request for Mothers Day was king salmon fishing. But since the big day's weather forecast stinks, we ventured out yesterday. Nice day, and we came home with her first entry into this year's king derby. At 37.5" and 32.5# it won't be in the winner's circle, but there are a bunch of cash prized for randomly drawn lengths. We caught some others, but that first of the day was the real winner.
Her request for a special Mothers Day Dinner? Fresh king salmon collars grilled with a little alder smoke. How can you beat that!
Happy Mothers Day for a happy wife!
