beerbelly and lucky bamboo wanted a fish story from me seeing as how im a new member. OK

Last year i fished the upper wind for the first time with a friend of mine. i caught a nice fish and was fishing again when i hooked another fish and was in the process of bringing it in.it wasnt fighting like the last one but i thought it might be a smaller fish. i brought it in and was surprised to find out what i had.it turned out to be a salmon that had been fileted and tossed back out in the river.considering the condition it was in,it put up a pretty good fight.I guess he didnt want to get thumped again. HUH.i ended up going home with 3&1/4 fish. they were all bright fish,especially the 1/4 one.it was preeeety tasty.
True story----

I guess i was living up to my login name of fish-bones.

OK, let me get this straight, you caught a live fish that was missing its sides?? The person that filet it must have left a lot of meat for it to still be able to swim, let alone still be alive. Wow that is a story, I have heard of sturgeon being caught after they have been fileted, but hey I have seen sturgeon live out of the water for almost a week.

If you can tell that tale with a straight face, sounds like you will fit right in!

Welcome aboard!

How was the hike out of the canyon? You can't do an upper Wind story without at least mentioning that you have be part goat or llama to get in and out. Great story. :laugh: :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:

I DID TOSS IT BACK IN TO THE RIVER GODS.

Hmmmmmmm....already fileted out, huh? I've heard some "real" fish stories, and I guess that's as believable as most of them are! :laugh: Not that I don't believe you, Fish-bone, cause I do. There's all kinds of strange goings-on in the world of fishing! :shocked: Good story, and hope we get to read more like this one!
