Default Late news: Small girl catches 43lb Salmon

Over the last holiday weekend my daughter when fishing with her grandfather and uncle in the ocean off the CR. Dad stayed home. She called me to meet her at the dock to show me the big fish she had caught. And this is what she came home with


[image][/image]


She had not entered the derby for she would have received grand prize for sure but we weighed it at the scales anyway. It was a chinook 43 lbs!The lady at the dock scale said it was the biggest fish she had weighed all year. For reference my girl is about 52"tall


She may be small but she is mighty!

Enjoy

Bluewater.

I admittedly get quite bored of the grown men ego posts displaying very average fish.

This on the other hand is special.
Very, Very cool

Awesome. I had my daughter(roughly same size) come over to the computer to show her what your daughter caught. She was pretty impressed. I bet she was super excited.

I would blow that picture up to 14x17" or so and frame it for the wall if it was my kid! That's one she can show her grandkids! Good for her!
