It was one year ago this weekend that my then 7yo went out fishing with a professional guide and caught our first 4 salmon. We've been "fishermen" ever since although our technique and "luck" still haven't become consistent. Nobody was catching that day but our guide was a freakin' genius at finding them and getting a bite. Maybe he was just lucky but I took pictures and notes and swore to learn his ways.
The fall run chinook haven't officially begun swarming upriver yet and the water is warm. But the high tide is at 10:15pm and the water should be below 70F tonight. I'm leaving the kids at home so I can be out there in the wee WEE hours. (Yes, I just said wee-wee and yes it's funny.) I have glow in the dark Silvertron spinners and sardine-wrapped KillerFish. The boat is full of gas and the batteries are charged. And with any luck I'll be sober by then.
If there's a salmon in that river tonight, it's miiiiine!
