I looked at Kenai Keepers last year at the Sportsman Show, but did not buy one. I then hauled myself in and out of the Kenai last year, fish after fish after fish. At the end of the day I said to myself I would absolutely get one this year.
Anybody have experiences with these? Good/bad?
Here is one concern of mine, and I am wondering if you think it is a valid concern. While dipping last year, a guy just a bit down from me caught a small shark in his net. Sand shark maybe? Salmon shark? I don't really remember. Then, later in the day, there was a fish that got caught up in a shallow pool. Thinking it was a salmon I went over to help it (or keep it maybe?), and it was also a small shark.
So here is the concern - there are sharks in the water. Only small ones that I've seen, but sharks nonetheless. I presume they follow the salmon in. I like to whack my salmon and immediately gill it so it bleeds out. Do I REALLY want to tie 5-10 bleeding salmon to my waist with sharks in the water?
