Salmon Run

It's a little late in the season, but Greg and I managed to find a spot in northern Michigan where the salmon were still "running." (For you non-fishers out there, it's when the salmon swim upstream to spawn and make more salmon babies!)

Here's Greg in action!

He landed this fish in less than 5 minutes after casting. Afterwards, we let the salmon go because he was "fresh" and we wanted to give him an opportunity to spawn in case he hadn't done so already. We're nice like that - ha,ha! :-)

Even Scout was impressed - she managed to wake up from her nap on the bridge to give Greg a congratulatory tail wag. After that, it was time for treats! It's hard work guarding the river of course....
