I’ve always remembered what the guy said when I hollered to ask him what he was going after just as he pushed his boat away from the dock at the Washington State lake.
“Whatcha gonna fish for?” I shouted. “I’m fixin’ to get a tiger by the tail,” was his chuckling response.
I knew the lake he was going out on had a sizeable population of kokanee, those good eating landlocked sockeye salmon that are very popular in a number of Pacific Northwest lakes. I’d also heard other anglers talk about the sizeable rainbow trout they’d taken there.
