For my birthday (today), my uncle, his friend, and my cousin took me salmon fishing in the San Juan's.
We caught no salmon, but I managed to reel in a rockfish--think really ugly fish with bulging eyes and spiney fins--and a dogfish--a small shark, about 2 1/2 feet long.
We also pulled up three crabs, two of which were keepers.
On top of this, I managed to catch a few too many rays. My face, forearms, and knees are bright red.
I'm not really that much into fishing, but I had a good time. It makes me think of the Brad Paisley song, 'I'm Gonna Miss Her," known to most as "The Fishing Song."
