    It was a brutal day in the wind today, but us old retired guys scored. For those of you who have trouble identifying a sea run cutthroat, this is a nice 19" beauty my friend Mark nailed this afternoon between the surf and wind! View attachment 49078

    Gorgeous. Is that a Squimp he's choking on? Way to persevere through the wind--I totally pussed this weekend...

    not always a visible cut on fish in the salt. If thats what you rely upon, you will make mistakes.

    I can't pull up the picture but 19" is huge. Nice work especially sticking it out in the wind.

    Saw that picture yesterday Larry, great shot... not sure where it went. I'm hoping to creep your way tomorrow morning. Maybe I'll bump into you out there, I've got a wicked skunk going and I need to shake it.
