That's good news...

...But the photo is even better!
Why? Just another big fish, right?
Not exactly...caught yesterday IN PORTLAND...In the Ross Island Lagoon.
More?
By a bass fisherman whose rig was the only one in the Willamette Park lot.
More?
On a silver plug and six-pound leader.
More? Details next week in my TGF column...

I've ran into Bass anglers who have related stories of usually losing their gear to a Springer using such light line and such and on a side note I did release a good 8lb Large mouth one day just off Oaks park. A hen with a massive belly full of eggs guess my herring just got too close to her nest as she pounded the holy crap outta that bait.

That鈥檚 awesome, have pics of the fish? I hear if people catching coho in the Willy quite often fishing for bass but never hear if nooks caught. Hear about them being caught while Shad fishing all the time.

Wonder if the guy was upset thinking he had a record size bass only to realize it鈥檚 a dumb salmon 馃槀. I know I get upset when I hook into a sturgeon while salmon fishing.

He seemed pretty happy when I talked with him.
