First Real Fish from my Outback!
Ok, so last week I jigged up a few herring and undersize rockfish. That doesn't count. So I launch out of Seward near Miller's landing and make it almost to Caines Head. I manage to pick up my first coho of the year and the christening real fish for my new outback! WOOHOO!
Caught it on 5.0 coyote spoon right off Tonsina Creek. I had one other one on but lost it at the same place but when I was headed back in. I thought I might hook a chum but I am pretty sure the fish I lost was a coho by the way it fought. This outback sure is worth its money when it comes to trolling and letting out flashers and such without tangling.
I spent about half the day jigging with not much to show for it. I did manage a small greenling I was going to send down for bait and then realized I should at least measure it and get points.
The wind and rain pick up and it gets cold so I decide to call it a day. the outback definitely gives me WAY more range!!! Too cool. After spending the first half of the summer getting my upper body in shape, now I need to get my legs in shape. After I stopped for a bit, i started to cramp up and a tinge of panic as I was thinking I didn't want to paddle all the way back. Nothing some fluids and a snickers bar couldn't take care of though!
