Salmon Dancers

Went trolling for Kings with no bait on this awesome day on the Kenai. More like a boat ride since nobody caught a king. These fisherman are "flipping" for reds. You step around til you find a spot that snags the fish. They call it the salmon dance. Kind of looks like they are two-stepping, dosen't it?

This funny Japanese tourist is getting his picture taken hanging from the weigh-in hook like he was a halibut or something.

Here is where the serious fishing is going on. The setnetters and the driftnetters taking their piece of the pie. Right out in front of the lodge. It is cool to watch. Especially on a day like today.

Dipnetting, flipping, setnetting and driftnetting ... we love hearing about it all Kathy.

Thanks so much!
