Default Dogfish, I mean fish dogs.

The Duckbomber rolled at 5pm today.

Me and Alex and Ginger decided to run to our chosen tributary and see if we might be lucky enough to hunt a fish, since I am a decent hunter, but a lousy fisherman.
That being the case, I am not ever going to go fishing again, I will only hunt them.

I was able to drop the Bomber into the river and the dogs jumped aboard.

These pups are good dogs to ride in a boat with, They like the motion and the feel of the wind. It is good to have a pup Port and one Starboard.

There were 5 or 6 other boats at the chosen location, 2 on Anchor and the balance were trolling.

I decided to troll my way down to the mainstem of the Big river and thought that it might be worth a try.

After getting tangled around my ankle, and sticking my thumb, Alex decided to get in on the fun and walked through a giant loop in the main line and then sat down (as he sat down the line pulled the hook deeper into my thumb.

I begged him to remain seated… Much to my relief, he did..

I was already hooking things, I’ll try not to “break the skunk” with my thumb again (I was really glad that I had pinched the barbs on the treble hook…

I dropped the line over the side and started a zig zag troll and in about 40 seconds, I had on a nice fish.

It jumped and I couldn’t tell if it was a Steelhead or a Silver, but it was bright and about 7 or 8 lbs, so I was pretty excited about having a fish on.

As I got it closer to the boat, I saw That Hooked nose of a buck Silver. And just the right number of fins.

This fish was much easier to land than the the steelhead I got last week…This fish just slid right on into the net like It wanted to be there.

Alex wanted to dive in and put the squeeze on that fish, but I told him to chill out. That fish was on Ice in minutes of being caught.

My first silver on the Columbia river in my entire life… Only took me 38 years to do it, but I got it in the box!
Alex really did chill out too, He was flat out comatose.
Really enjoyed the day out there, I can not believe I actually caught a fish, I am still in shock.

Sure glad I had my dogfish, I mean, Fish Dogs.

So are those bottle of ice in that cooler or doggie libations? Which would explain picture #3.

Aww but they look like they are having so much fun! I would reconsider and take them out again : )

And this is a cool pic too : )

I take Senna fishing when I go for bass n stuff on the Columbia from the bank. She does well now at almost 5 years of age. I think hopping the rocks is tough for her shorter legs but once we get to the chosen spot she is mellow.

Fighting over the fish will only serve to divert us from our common goal.
