Thumbs up My son caught his first chum today

Took RG, RG's sister, my son Brad, and myself out to a local chum river. Didn't have alot of time, so figured it was a quick fish fix.

Well, my son landed his first chum. I helped him a bit on the beaching process, but he did the fighting. It was a borderline keeper. But he was so proud of it (and the hatchery wants them out completely) so I let him keep it. I'll smoke it (luckily was firm and meat was still a bright pink surprisingly). So, here's his picture, RG had to hold it for him (he was afraid of the teeth.)
