Of course it's a long long ways away, but as the months go on, day dreaming of sockeye fishing in the evening on glass calm waters in shorts and a tank with a hey ya'll in hand (non alch of course) become more and more frequent. I got into salt fishing in 2015 so i haven't experienced a true sockeye bonanza yet, but from forums/videos and word of mouth, i heard it can be very productive and fun. Are there any early predictions on returns yet for this year? Will we get a fishery? Will everything close to preserve killer whales?? Will Mark Madryga finally shave his head and stop hiding his receding hairline? Go!
