i know i am stoked. my buddy should be back from afghanistan by that time, and he has a sled :D 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.

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.

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.
