Who is stoked?
Thank god she is wearing gloves.
Haha! That was my first though as well. Slimy bastards! I am excited for the pinks, but honestly haven't thought about it much. Too much fishing to do before them...still one trip to the OP left, some salt/src fishing, summer steel, then pinks!
i know i am stoked. my buddy should be back from afghanistan by that time, and he has a sled and plus, i've never caught any on a fly rod before, so this should help me out with some spey practice and some heavy one-hander stuff. it will also be fun fishing them in the salt and the skagit. looks like i will be going after school everyday for the end of the run.
can't wait to see some pics of monster humps!
Haven't done it, but sounds like a blast. This will be my first Pink run since I became a Westcoaster. From how excited everbodys getting, I'm getting jacked as well, and I've never even caught one!
These will probably be the fish I learn how to switch/spey with once I save up some money and get a new set up. Hoping for this to be a good year/run.
Someone has been spending too much time on ifish.
August is a long way off still. Let's hope the run is as big as they predict. Otherwise there are going to be some really sad people.
lol just wait. they are easier to catch than stocker triploid on opening day with a wad of powerbait. pinks will eat almost anything pink and relatively small, especially when it's in their face. wait 'til you foul hook a buck in the hump ;D
Oh yeah, instead of 10 people fishing
on the beach there will be 200. Most
will be fishing illegally. All for a mushy
salmon thats only good for the smoker.
Yeah, and those 200 fisherman on the beach will all be "newbees" too. Scoot over please!
Then don't fish for them. I guess you don't fish for Chums either. How do those SRC's taste? Not sure of the reason for the Pink hate.
I fish for all salmon
but the humpy zoo just
brings out all the nut jobs
and clueless newbees with
treble hooks. Give me a fresh
caught Silver any day.
Best thing is it congregates all the door knobs in select areas which can be easily avoided.
Hell, even if its annoying, the more people out catching fish, the more support we will have in conservation efforts.
