Went down to the RR Ferry today with the family and fished the Kenai. It was pretty slow, but my wife and daughter caught their first salmon today! My daughter (9) landed an acrobatic red with just some coaching. The funniest was my wife. She said she really didn't want to fish, but after a few hours she picked up a rod, and after her 3rd cast I heard her stuttering "ffff-ish, fff-ish, oh, it's, fff-ish". She did a great job and I was able to net it pretty quickly. Then, when my wife saw a nice big cataraft with 5 people and a couple of dogs in it, she actually said "Let's get one of those by next year". So, how tough are these to learn how to handle. Great day all around, except my 7 y.o. son has yet to catch a salmon all by himself, so he is pretty dejected right now. Hopefully, he will land some kind of salmon soon.
