I went fishing the yesterday night for red salmon at the buskin river. I was going to pick up my dad at the airport so i decided to fish at the outlet of the lake. Right when i was about to leave i saw my strike indicator dissapear and i set the hook hard. A large male red salmon cleared the water several times and then took off downstream. I ran after the fish for about 100 yards and finally landed it after a 10 minute slugfest. Below is the pic of the fish that was destined for the frying pan!

Fresh strong looking fish, looks real tasty. I'm wondering how you cook it?
