Roger,

We fished both days last weekend and got 2 fish each day with several other pound downs.

I just think this thing has got to slow down sooner than later except for that Bonneville thing.

Shane - if you read this, have you been doing Tillamook yet? I have read some of the reports from the other "Carrots" and it sounds good from them in those reports. Are you also still going to put time in for URB's on the Columbia as well?

Thanks all.

Went 2 for three today with a couple not real serious drivebys. Still fish to be caught and not as crowded as two weeks ago. :grin:

Any possiblity I could talk you guys into a few tips on where and/or what to use :bowdown: . I have been out there a couple times the last week and have not had much success near St. Helens :depressed: .

Thanks in advance for your time :cheers: .....if4f

Ifish4fun,

Here is what to use.



Starting at the Left, the 1st 6 are Alvins/Brads in my favorite colors. The 7th (Far Right) is a Clancy. The Clancy has a piece of blue tape on it (Use this lure when the tide is at its peak because of the weight)(This is the heavy Clancy by the way, they come in 3 thicknesses but I don't rememer the 3 thicknesses). Also note that #2 & #6 have a trebel hook at the top as well. I use 1 ott Owner cutting points on all my wobblers. The 2 wobblers with the hooks at the top are #2 Owner Cutting Points.

All these colors have produced. I use a special scent (CDP) which I have been sworn to secrecy but Marie's Shrimp Scent is also a winner.

I use a slider rig which has 6 foot of liter to my weight and 5 to 7 feet of liter to my Wobbler.

Don't be afraid to bounce that thing way down the river. Farther is better in my opinion but use your judgement as hog lines will dictate how far back.

Good luck to you. That St. Helens, Gobel area has been a producer this summer.

thanks KHH,

I have been using #1, 2 and 7 along with a few others. My #7 is not nearly as bentup, is that on purpose? I will have to try moving around some and see if I can find a spot were they will hit.

Thanks again for the info, one can never learn enough :smile: .

Don't need no scent.....but a 4' dropper seemed to be the ticket today...water was 64 degrees by my finder.

Ifish4fun,

#7 is right out of the package. No tuning is necessary.

Good luck.

#2 and #3 are winners. :grin: Don't rule out 1/2 nickel/copper, mine got scratched up pretty well today by 15 and 24 lb. URB's. Maries sticky shrimp scent was responsible for a lost fish 2 min. after setting it on the bottom and garlic smelly jelly whacked the two we netted. 5x5 leader and dropper. Don't be afraid to bend them to get a little slower wobble either. :wink: :cheers:
