    I couldn't afford to go to Alaska plus I have to work but wanted to catch a salmon. Never caught any ever so I decided to take a road trip with some friends to Pulaski, NY for the fall salmon run.

    It was by far one of the craziest styuff i have ever seen fishingwise. Imagine 20 and 30lb salmon swimming in a river no more than 2 feet deep!

    Hooking a fish wasn't to hard, but landing them was a different story. The hookup to land ration was 20 to 1 because you have to use light line (8lb flouro).

    I did land 2 and got them filleted and smoked at a nearby fish cleaning station.

    So here it is, my first ever salmon! Enjoy bros!
