While in town last night getting our supplies, we ran into a couple that we became acquainted with while we were fishing at the town park. They asked where we were staying and said that if we wanted to move, they had space for us next to them. Their camp has river access, and the second run of reds seem to favor that side of the river. I have been fishing in town, but we are now across the river and a couple of miles from downtown.
Catch of the day! Two still flopping beauties fresh out of the river. Their buddy #3 made a run for it and got off my hook in a last ditch effort. Oh well, there will be another day and another time, and we will still have that old frying pan ready………….
This slab weighs 5.2 lbs and is about half of one fillet. We marinated it in Lipton’s Onion Soup mix and butter. A little Ranch dressing at the sit down topped it off – Ummmm good and good for you. You probably smelled it when it was cooking on the Barbie! Hopefully, leftovers for supper.
No fishing tomorrow – back on the road to scout out more of the Kenai Peninsula.
