Went out to the land of the big ones and didn't get dissapointed. Hit the river 2 days in a row at 2 great holes. Day one we had a few bites and my buddy had a moster on. even with the heavy gear in anticipation of 20+lbers took 20 minutes to barely get the upperhand. Once we finally got it close to the bank it wasn't even tired and made some good shakes and spit the hook. never got to see it but wouldn't put it an ounce under 20lbs. nothing in the net that day but went back out with bfishing and a few friends to get him into some bday chrome. to many people to fish the private property i was blessed with the privalage of fishing the day before and hit them river neer by. wasn't long before brandon got the first fish. Very fat trout say probbably close to 2lbs. soon later i got a sculpin. I catch them everywhere. Then brandon got the first chrome. Nice native fresh from the sea complete with lice. Bout a 6lber. quick pic and off it went. Kiska sure enjoys"helping" land fish. Soon as ou have one on shes all about getting it to the bank. after a while later my rod went off. thought with the roe which i seem to have an endless supply of after coho season it was another trout. after a good hookset i soon relized it was a fiesty steelhead. Not quite a big as brandons but sure put up a good fight. also had some sea lice on it. didn't even take the time for a picture and back it went. After awhile of rig changes and no action all of a sudden my buddy jumps up from his nap like postion next to the fire and sets the hook. a few seconds later he says monster. took awhile to convince this beast in and cafefully played it around potention snags. wasn't a 20lber must have been about 17-18lbs but never weighted since it was another sea lice packin nate. So after 2 days of fishing we got our hands on one of the many rivermosters running up from the sea this winter even if only for a brief photo op. to bad we never seen the other one it was easily a 20+ lber. Kiska sure enjoyed the day and so did we. Hard to beileve just a last week she wasn't doing to well. had the riverbank to ourselves and only had to share it with one boat for a bit. funny how close they fish when the have the entire river and not another soul on the bank for miles in either direction. can't wait to get back out to get my hands on one of these monser sea trout. lots of action and the season just started.

Thanks guys. One of my favorite seasons. Kiska loves it to. All you gotta do is just sit and wait for that monster steel to swim by. Chad if you head over,under,down,or up there there are some fish to be had. but you already knew that.
