It is often interesting to dipnet up here (Alaska) for salmon....not really sport fishing, more of a meat haul, but one always runs the chance of missing the run during the 1-3 day opener.

Anyway...when you bring in a limit of 30-60 fish (not many silvers, but reds and some kings), it is interesting to see just what tribulations the salmon can survive and still make it upstream: lots of faint striations? That one got out of a net; just flat missing a chunk? Bear or seal escape artist. Odd notch or missing small fin? Hatchery fish that got confused. Deep regular gouges; again, bear, seal, possibly Beluga escape artist. (infrequently on the dipnet areas): Salmon with a hook embedded in it's back or even in the underside? Got out of a snagging situation.

Again, salmon are tough: surviving those situations and retaining enough strength and drive to make it several days upriver from the saltwater.

Hey bucky, I could change, or add to my title, but fishing tales will just lead to more of same. [emoticon] At least a pic of pretty lady fisherperson!

My thread is just a BS thread, to motivate some forum activity. Post whatever subject you would like, pics make it more interesting. Feel free to post a pic of your TV, a SxS, MC, snowmobile, or GF, as long as Marty permits.

Not a TV, just taking a friend for a ride.

"So much for tow vehicles. Please rename as Fishing Tales."

I used my F550 to tow the boat the last time I went dipnetting. I used the F250 several times this year to tow the boat to the lake for fishing and sightseeing.

I didn't tow anything with the Jeep Wrangler, but have towed a 4-place sno-go trailer with the Toyota Sequoia.

Shared some PMs with Chris quite a while ago. Nice guy, and the type of fellow that always lands on his feet! Nice pic of guys enjoying some bike time!

My riding buddy just bought this a week ago. His first ever Harley. I've owned two, a long while ago. He says Winter project?? Will be interesting, since he is a Canyon Dancer type rider. He is an Exec in the motorsports industry, with unlimited resources to build whatever? I'll likely get to take it for a rip next Summer!
