Big ol' bruiser

Went out yesterday with Alan "Osmosis" and a friend of his to do some fishing. It was soooo cold. It rained ,hailed, rained and oh, did I say it was really cold, wow! Any ways, after a short float we hooked into my first salmon from a drift boat. Let me tell you, this salmon put up a heck of a fight, especially big ones like these. This was the only one we caught and missed several other good hits. The river was still a little too high and there was only one other boat.
We let this one go so he could pass his genes on to the next generation. If you guys have a chance to book a trip with him, do it! He has a lot of knowledge about fishing and he'll definitely get you into some fish. He's got this down to a science. Thanks for the trip Osmosis.

Awesome looking monster! You just can't go wrong with Alan, he knows more about fish than most fish know.

Nice job! Bruiser for sure. Good to see some fish of good size able to spawn to pass those genetics on to catchable Fish 4-5 years from now.

It wasn't on the Siuslaw. Further north.

You could've been on an episode of "River Monsters" with that one! Glad to see you got something, for your frozen efforts!

Say, are those icicles dangling OFF your hat???

BTW, has anyone ever mentioned that you look like Jimmy Smits (of LA Law fame)?
