    Those fish are tasty. I was living over on the dry side mid 90's when the drunk bass fisherman ran his boat through the net pens and released the triploids for the first time. Colville tribe saw an opportunity for a cool fishery and ran with it. We used to just plunk power bait for them, but boat is way more fun. Looks like an awesome trip. Makes me want to get back over there and do it again.

    Great job, and nice set-up. How do those triploids taste in the frying pan or on the grill? Fresh/Clean, or any mud?? Those smoked slabs look delicious....way to get after it.....
