the giant salmon that got away …

Went salmon fishing with Dad out of Port Alberni, B.C.

Within 10 minutes of putting line down to 50 feet he caught one of the biggest salmon of his life.

He had it in the net 3 times … each time thrashing out.

The third time was the charm. It managed to break the 25 pound test line. And escape. 😦

… It was a beautiful day on the water. At least.

Happily, he did catch another smaller salmon.

Otherwise backyard venison might have been added to the menu.

Delicious.

He’ll get the BIG one next time. Perhaps during the September long weekend derby.
