I think winni had a very good salmon year. Healthy & strong fish all spring and summer. Maybe there was too much pressure from the derby. Anyway I didn't get up as much this year as usual, but still had six or seven productive outings when I did. Got terribly skunked last week for 4 days!! That's a first in the fall, could not find the fish,tried everything and everywhere, oh well better to be there than not. I appreciate all the talk on the website, and I should post more often, thanks. Can't wait for ice out!
