Today, we had gone fishing with "The Salmon Kid". Jared's never been fishing for Salmon before so Chad went with us to teach Jared. We got to the hatchery around 5:00AM. We all didn't expect as many people to be there this morning but we were SO wrong! There was around 60-70 people. Chad hooked into a Salmon around 5:30AM and passed the rod off to Jared so he could reel in his first Salmon and hopefully land it too. The Salmon put up a fight for sure. Jared went down the bank quite a ways and finally Chad netted the Salmon after about 10-15 minutes. It sure was a gorgeous fish weighing in around 15-20lbs. Later in the day, Jared hooked into another one but then lost it :( There were plenty of losses today but we can't thank Chad enough for helping Jared and coming with us. Thank you AGAIN, Chad! We can't wait to get out there &hook some more! :D

Sorry for such big pictures... Not too sure on how to make them a little smaller! :think:

Chad and I trying to fight a HOG. Chad hooked into the Salmon &passed the rod off to me so I could have a feel to how big the Salmon fights can be. Thanks Chad for helping me when you knew I was iffy on reeling it in! Lol. After the Salmon jumped and Chad saw how HUGE it was, he took over and the Salmon put on a huge fight down the bank. After about 5 minutes, it snapped the 45lb line. DARNIT! SO close! :(
