Just got my first salmon EVER today. Got a monster buck at Cedar Creek. Bad picture its from my cell phone. 16 pound HAWG! Caught it at sunrise with bobber and some eggs. Hooked another right after but my line snapped. I didn't know you had to change your leader in between, guess the first one kinda shredded it.

Trapped inside my own mind.
Way to go man!
Too bad you had to learn about changing your leader after every fish the hard way. At the very least run your fingers up the line and feel for nicks in the line after every snag or fish.

You guys don't know how bad ass it is to have a bunch of experienced fishermen telling you good job, especially for a rookie like me. THANKS OFF!!!!

Nice fish!

I haven't caught a Salmon this year (except the bagillion i caught in AK, but those don't count) so i need to kill the skunk too.
