Well the humps are startin to run here in the northwest. I have been out a few time, got skunked but people around me were catchin them. It is still early, as the big swarm is still a good ways out in the sound. Anyone else been out salmon fishin.

Why, they are so much fun. They are great smokers too.

Anybody that eats canned salmon eats humpies (pinks). Alaska "salmon snobs" :) of course don't eat them, but the rest of us poor mortals down below must take what we can get. :cry:

The only salmon I don't eat is chum. Had it canned once. Didn't care for it. As long as they are fresh, which they are only 15 minutes from the sound. They are tasty and chromers.
