Mysis shrimps

Anyone add weight to their Mysis?
Are you placing a bead up by the bend or just some lead wire along the shank?

First fish is a very small Pollock. First of the year. Second is a Coalie. Same family as pollock and very common up here. This was around 1lb and rod coped well. I will keep trying to hook a 4lb Pollock with it to really test it.
Lovely action on the rod and superb with small metal lures.
A seal culled the action as the tide flooded but a good couple of hours with approx 30fish total.

Eating Pink salmon

11 October 2017 - 08:37 AM

Hi folks, this year saw a lot of pink salmon appear in Scottish and Irish rivers. If next year proves similar I am keen to hear views on the eating quality and when to avoid eating one.
I've been told that because they spawn so soon after entering fresh water there is a small window of opportunity for eating one. Is this just a myth?
