    Default did you

    run it in your own boat? Are the guides still getting up at all hours of the night to sit on the holes or get there first?

    Nice fish - that'll wear your arms out in that current.

    Nice to see the children learning the art, and the fun, of fishing. He doesnt even realize this yet, but he will be bragging on that pic for many years to come! Way to go!

    Looks to me like you went on the MARGARITTA with Full Curl Outfitters, that is a sweet Boat. I am glad to see a father son combo getting it done. Can't wait till my son is old enough to handle a king on the Klutina.

    you are correct my father in law can not feel his feet and has a hard time standing so we needed something comfortable for him , the boat is a darn nice boat. Fullcurl took us to some very productive spots.. and we didnt start till 12:00 noon or so..

    Got to love those types of first spent with your kids. My son caught his first Lake Michigan King when he was 10 now 3 years later I have him rigging and setting all the lines when we head out trolling.

    Looks like I'll have a second chance at some salmon in Kodiak at the end of the month.. Maybe this time I'll be able to get something.
