Fish on!

Sweetie took me fishing at Jim Creek yesterday morning for silver salmon. It was overcast, windy, cold at only 51 degrees and I got water in my boots...but, I managed to still catch a fish!
My silver salmon - it was flopping around making it difficult for me to hold it.

others fishing along the creek - this is where Jim Creek meets the Knik river which drains from the Knik Glacier

I bet that glacier water was much colder than 51degrees. Brrrr. Your salmon is big. I bet it tasted good too.
