    Have been having a rough go at my salt game this season (1/13... Ouch!), which I have attributed to too much trout fishing (strip set!) . Decided a new sticker for my stripping basket was the ticket to changing my luck. I was right.

    2/2 in the past 2 days, with some tasty coho to hand.

    Nice work Jon! Way to pick up the pace. That certainly improves your batting average!

    Was a good morning. Great to see Jon get that fish. We've fished together so many times, and i've only ever seen him actually hook a lackluster chum. Now I guess I have to believe him when he says he's hooking fish! ;)

    I got a pretty insane pink this morning--at least Jon tells me it was a pink. It mostly spent our time together about 100-150 feet away from me. Then I lost it. So worth it though.

    The power of a Hello Kitty sticker can't be underestimated!
    Nice work Jon.

    At least you've been hooking up regularly...when i ran into you not to long ago you were 0-7 if i remember correctly. Good work on landing one...I know how it feels. I just ended a random 0-6 streak.

    That's what has been keeping me confident. Working out the kinks now for big dividends later. Best advice ever...from jason's thread on the same topic..." make them earn the reel."

    Way to stay persistent. At least you're getting into fish. Good job.

    Reading this stuff really makes me realize how lucky I was to go 1 for 2 my first time out. Mostly because Nick worked out all the kinks for me.
