    Bummer on the fishing.

    Are you going to make it to Colorado this year or are other factors getting in the way?
    Going to CO hunting October 30-Nov 7. Drew a mule deer tag and my son got a cow elk tag so we are set. I’ll probably buy an otc bull tag.

    I was in the Spokane Costco last night and no sockeye in stock. I’m sure there is a brand like they sell that says “no skin”. Worth the extra bucks.

    The north Spokane Costco is an hour from our new digs during daylight hours and a bit longer if it’s dark. Too many critters to drive “efficiently”.

    Since the Canajuns instituted their draconian policies for border crossings, my trips to Rivers Inlet and Vancouver Island fishing are on permanent hold. That was my primary source for salmon and halibut. Oh well.

    Unfortunately the nearest Costco is over two hours away. I keep reading good things about them and would entertain a membership if we had one close.

    Will keep this in mind. Ironically just last week we tried canned pink salmon for the first time. The kids were grossed out at first, they’re not really fans of tuna even. My wife picked through the contents getting most of the ick out and ended up making patties as you described. They actually turned out pretty good. No leftovers but might be awhile before she makes them again. Still have three cans left, lol!

    Good article Matt , my cousin who lived in Washington state for several years preferred the Pacific sea run Rainbows . I never caught one but I imagine I would be satisfied ( well satisfied ) with a eastern steelhead . It’s on my bucket list ! Thanks Matt
    I visited a Cousin in Enaumclaw,WA and after a week of steady meals actually got tired of Crab and Salmon. I longed for a good steak.

    My mother fed us "salmon croquettes" occasionally.
    We fed our kids mackerel patties sometimes.
    Not one of our favorite meals, but everybody ate and noone complained. 🙂

    EVO and canola in the cupboard. Need to try peanut oil deep frying, we had another fish fry here at home after our camping feast and it didn’t go well. I had the canola smoking too much and the fish had that burned taste even though they weren’t over done. Not sure what I did different but it was disappointing.

    Enjoy!
    I like to strain all the onion bits out of the marinade and place it on top of the salmon while it cooks. AWESOME!

    Crumble leftover salmon in a bowl and add minced onion. Add 1 egg and enough flour to make a patty. Coat with Panko bread crumbs and pan fry. 😋🥰

    The grilled salmon is awesome! The patties made from the grilled salmon are about a "G" on a scale of 1 to 10.

    When I was going to Kodiak, I'd always bring back as much smoked salmon as I could!
    It never lasted very long....or shall we say, long enough!

    I LOVE smoked salmon dip!

    BTW! fitch270, Pacific Cod is an awesome whitefish that is very clean and lends itself to whatever recipe you like for white fish.

    I quit(?) deep frying fish. Just too much grease.
    Anymore, I just coat the fish and use just enough EVOO in a nonstick skillet and fry(?) it until brown.
    It's still fried, but only a TBS of EVOO instead of five gallons of hog lard! LOL!

That stuff was great. Just packed with flavor, and way more sustaining through a long day of hunting than plain old beef jerky.
    Mine is a bit of a foodie and a good cook. He’s very adept with his smoker so I’m sure he’ll have a batch of salmon done before very long.

    Sounds like we’re getting a care package 😎👍

    I'd rather catch kings than silvers, but I'll take what ever hits! 😃!
