Salmon clause is coming to town..
Well me and mad fisher went out for a fish this morn, after a few engine troubles(my bad, should learn to grease the steering arm!) we eventually got out. Windy as all hell we putted along until about 5 meters from the boat a school of salmon came out of no where. First cast with a snap back on my 8lb bream gear resulted in a hook up, after a 5 minute fight i had the first one boat

Then it was on for young and old(not saying your old mark :P its a saying)

Just to give you an idea of the size of the fish , as the photos dont give these thumpers justice.

The first one on a snapback measured in at 86cm and weighed around 5kg, then they just got bigger. No small fish in the school, all horses.
We eventually lost the school when mad fisher decided it was his turn to land one on bream gear and this fish just wouldnt give up! Well, it wasnt just us who lost it, about 15 minutes into the fight the school went deep.
Great day fishing!
