For, I'm Eric Granstrom. It doesn't happen every time out on the water, but once in a while, the fish gods smile upon you and a bounty falls at your feet. The question is, how do you keep track when this happens? Thankfully, North Central Washington waters provide a good opportunity to be faced with this question more often than not. Hopefully this has happened to you. Now, if you're by yourself, keeping track of how many fish you have onboard is pretty easy. Especially if you're catching a 5-fish limit. But what if there's multiple people on board, call catching fish, and the limit is 10-per person? I can't tell you how many times, even salmon fishing on a busy boat, I've had to reach in the cooler or the live well and pull one fish out after another, doing a recount to make sure we're legal. My wife Marion and I were confronted with this scenario a couple years ago at Deep Lake while catching our 10-kokanee per person. She started separating corn into a lid to keep track. Then, last year, she came home with an abacus counter. It's worked great ever since. Until next time, Good Fishing!
