Rogue River University - Salmon Schooling

Ellie, Ethan and Kevin
Ethan hooked the 1st salmon of the morning which took the crew by surprise just before dawn. Then ready and waiting Ethan hooked and landed the beauty above, a hatchery fish he took home for his family. Ellie mastered the art of back bouncing a shrimp cocktail (which is no easy task) and hooked into a shiny king, which put up a winning fight, but not without being challenged. The 4th Chinook of the morning hit Ethan's rod and he, like a true gentleman, handed the rod off to his sister. Ellie battled the monster below and put it in the net like a pro! True teamwork. Thanks Dad, Kevin and Mom, Tonya for making this happen.
