0400 or the SC Harbor to find squid. Searched for 90 min for not.

Decided to go salmon fishing instead. Heading out to 40fm line the kid spots some balloons so we turn around and grab them. 30fm deep tons of bait on bottom with good marks. Kid says let's start here.

Proceed to troll around and have many take downs with blistering runs that shake loose deep.

Finally, a fish sticks and up from the deep....a 30lb butt. 9' glass rod and barbless hooks.

Keep going and more ripping runs with head shakes.

Finally we hook into right kind and its double. Being the kids first salmon I didnt need a double. Helping him mine runs for prop and I had to kill motor. Without forward momentum his fish gets to have his way with us and dings either line for freedom. At least he got to see him. 15lb fish is my guess.

We troll some more as I clean up before pulling lines. One up, then neutral and second up. Half way I get hit. Back in gear and wouldnt you know it...another halibut. 29".

Pizza, rootbeer at Crows Nest Market end a day. Weird but great day. All fish Dodger/Bait 170-180 in the mud.
