Default Bassmen can catch dinner too!!!

so i take my Skeeter out today on the big C with another bass buddy. we went into the salmon boats and proceeded to cast amongst them with cranks and spinners, going 3 for 3 in front of about 20-25 boats with guys trolling, anchored , and beached. I held my own with my trolling motor, quite well i might add! so i only saw 1 other fish caught in the 2.5 hrs we were there and it was a chinook

first fish nice dead hen in my LIVE WELL:grin:.... orange crank

second fish 12lb buck on a black spinner:smile: notice empty bag of secret bait lying next to dead fish in my other live well.
third fish was a native so no pic a great C&R

thats right boys even BASS fishermen can catch dinner

Now those are some good fish for dinner!
Hope the fish don't taste like Cheetos!

Nice job! Always good to see a species specific targeting angler getting a suprise or 3. When I target bass I usually catch bass or sculpin or pike minnow or perch but never the big anadromous suprises. You seem to have more tattoos than me and when I see skin art represented on the water gives a guy like me hope. Thanks for the pics!
