The Popeye IV is not in the water yet, but I was lucky enough to be invited onto another Captain’s boat for his first run of the year. Due to a stroke of luck I just happened to be standing next to the first rod to get hit. The First Fish cranked in was this healthy 12 pound King (Chinook) Salmon!
The rest of the trip was followed by a mixed bag of Coho Salmon, Brown Trout, and Lake Trout. The weather was fantastic! flat seas and reasonable temps for this time of year.
Looks like this season is off to a great start!
