I finally talked Hubby into fishing on his birthday (said it's your day and you should do what you want -- being a wonderful husband, he said "let's go fishing! ButI'd like to be home in time to go for a short spin on my motorcycle.") Nooooooo problem!

I'd read that the go-to lure for Frenchman's Bar was silver/brass Alvin...I only had one, so I rigged his pole with it and took a red/silver for myself. We were watching a boat in front of us fight a fish when BANG, he got a hit. Brought this nice bright chinook (his first chinook and largest fish ever caught) to the boat!


I DID catch the anchor of someone who anchored a bit too close, not realizing we'd swing with the tide...switched wobblers a couple times to other colors but got nuttin...except another picture. Can you please name this vessel? When it was first coming up river toward us, I thought it was a sub that'd surfaced....


Great day on the river...less lumpy than Astoria was Thursday, for sure! Thanks, WaterDog, for the advice :smile:

That's one of those all weather life-crafts from a ship, and I think the crew of one of the big ships anchored in the river are using that to go into town.
