En route Mathew explained the finer techniques of how to land a pike and we talked about how it might be fishing for salmon. After that the topic wandered over to sturgeon fishing. Mathew was very interested in knowing what size sturgeon he could catch and whether he could handle one over six feet in length? We discussed the pro's and con's of various techniques of handling such a large fish and whether he could barefoot waterski behind one.
Once we got the boat over to the fishin spot, we got to the serious business of catching sockeye. With a four fish limit between him and Papa John, there was a lot of work to do.
