They left early one morning before the sun came up and were out on the water with their chain-smoking captain in time to see it rise above the horizon.
Ryan caught one!!
This picture of Ryan is one of my all-time favorites. So manly. So handsome. So thrilled by his catch. Such a beautiful Coho Salmon. I love love love it.
John Boy followed suit with this HUGE King Salmon. That thing was as long as John’s leg, and John is not a small man!
It should come as no surprise that upon returning from their trip the guys were in the kitchen preparing the salmon for the grill. Within a few hours of catching those fish, the whole family was enjoying the freshest possible salmon dinner. It was amazing.
Everyone ate their fill and we still had plenty for John and Ryan to bring home. The cooler full of salmon in our van was not my favorite part of the long drive back to Columbus… but the 2 more salmon grill outs that followed made it worth it.
