First Salmon of the Year
Finally the ice is gone and boat is in the water. Was able to get out on the lake today trolling flies. Hadn't fished more than 10 minutes when this 20 inch salmon hit a Winnipesaukee Smelt pattern. He gave a great fight with lots of acrobatics. Trolled for another couple hours with only one other hit. It was great to be back on the water.
