Hello all. I am new to Ifish and thought I would tell you all a bit about myself.

I have been fishing most of my life, mostly lake fishing (trout, kokanee etc.). Just recently I had an itching to spend time fishing for salmon.

After several unsuccessful trips, I decided to take a charter out last July. Every year my wife, child (now children) and I spend a week in Rockaway for her family reunion. So I figured I would invite some of the in-laws to join me on an excursion out to sea for coho. Altogether 7 of us made reservations to go out.

As soon as the crew had dropped the lines, fish-on. I must have reeled in 5 or six fish that day. Most of the fish caught that day where wild coho which had to be thrown back, I would say about 20 fish had been reeled in that morning. My father in-law and I limited out first thing in the morning, and we had to do everything in our power to not grab the poles that were going off(I would say he and I had the most excitement). My limit included 1 coho and 1 chinook, who would have thought my first time catching salmon I would get 1 of each.

We set off out of Garibaldi, and had the best crew you could imagine. The crew was just as excited about us catching fish as we were. Considering what had happened a few weeks before we went out, this crew was moving on with life!

ORS - thanks for the membership, and welcome ! :dance:

BD - Thanks for the welcome, and I am sure if I can ever get out of my house I will meet more Ifishers. My wife and I have a 6 week old daughter and a 3 year old boy - needless to say the weekends consist of giving my wife a little break.

Now that you have experienced the salmon thing, you will have to come back to try your luck at clams and crabs too.

Welcome to our family of I-fishers, and I-crabbers and I-clammers.

<font size="2" face="verdana,arial,helvetica">I tried to come up with something good here about my rod, but it just wouldn't sound right :grin:

6K, that just would not be enough. We would need the boat, shed, tractor, furnace, generator and amps. Not to mention the neon sign :wink:
