Fish, fish, and more fish!

The Trinity River is suddenly full of of today. Finally.
Alex has had a lot of angst over the "missing run" this year.
Well, 7 salmon and 1 steelie later we found them! They are here, (I hope), and hopefully will continue to swim upriver in the weeks to come spawning and doing their thing. This first
video is of a steelehead I pulled in, and was extra special as we got to keep him! He was nice and bright and great quality. The salmon are a bit too dark so they were released.
Forrest enjoyed it...well, he a perhaps enjoyed about half of it. The
other half of the time he was a fussy Fulton baby, making his mama pull her hair
out. But, better to pull your hair out on the river catching fish than
at home, right? Enjoy the last two clips. Alex's fight with a monster salmon ensues. The total length is actually 5 minutes but the limits of satellite internet caused a much shorter two parter for your viewing pleasure. The total deal is pretty funny as it includes some of the craziness that is included with fishing for these big guys with a baby, but you'll have to come visit to see that version. The second part is the conclusion of the saga. Did Alex get his prized fish? Or did baby Forrest and the salmon triumph over the parents in a plotting scheme?
Only you will know. So watch them both, (I know, watching fishing is not your favorite thing to do, it's about as exciting as watching grass grow, but hey, Forrest is cute at least!
Okay, I promise that this isn't just the baby and fishing blog, even though it seems like it. Hopefully turkeys, (or some other eventful thing,) will be in the future!
