Fresh Salmon

We grilled some salmon last night. A little butter and some Tony Chachere's Creole Seasoning (a nod to my southern roots) and yum! Even the kids like it, and they are picky eaters. We had a chance to go dip netting for salmon on the Kenai recently, and it was a blast. We headed out on a Friday night with some fellows Russ works with and camped out on the mouth of the Kenai. It's essentially a big tent city on both sides of the river. They only allow two weekends a year to dip net here and it's open to Alaskan residents only. The rule of the day is-- fish as much as you can in the time allowed, and play the rest of the time. The kids had a blast and the scenery was beautiful. We had a great view of the volcanoes on the other side of Cook Inlet.
Brandon caught his first salmon, and was so proud. He decided one was enough, though, and he was ready to go 4-wheeling again after that.
