    But there was that one fly dude that was there just about every time... And for our 200 or so fish we caught when he was there, he didn't catch a one.... And refused our offers to get him dialed in.

    Looking forward to seeing hundreds
    of drooling droids flinging hardware
    shoulder to shoulder at Lincoln Park.

    They catch a fish....(woo who!),
    bonk it and leave it on the beach
    in the sun for 2 hours.

    Yummy.

    You should set up a branch at the Dash Point pier. The people watching there is absolutely amazing.

    The fresh pinks are just fine. Never did understand the hate. The fillets are a bit on the thin side, but there's nothing wrong with the flavor. Especially for smoking!

    I dunno, there ok if your lost in the wilderness and starving :) naw, there fine, just they get a little mushy if not properly cared for, and honestly next to King, silver, sockeye, or even Sea-Run fillets they just do not hold up.

    While not my first choice, there is nothing wrong with pink salmon, if you catch them in the salt when they're bright. Use the bigger males for eating as they have more fat, smoke or can the females.

    Add some beer :beer1:with that popcorn and now your talking!! And constructeur - nice blog there buddy! Me likey :p

    But speaking of pinks, I caught a few off the beach last time, but need to find some in the river to play with. I am going to attempt to get an 11yr old hooked on fishing and don't want to do it in a spot where gear dudes are nuts to ass chucking pink buzz bombs.

    It's 3 million less than the 2009 run prediction (9 million total). That said, 09 was a record setting year for Pinks, so this year will still be one of the highest in recent years. As for Chum, the 2010 Fall forecast was 1.3 million so this year with be a little under that at 971k. JR.
