Took the old man and a friend out to the river today in search of more willing steelhead to catch. He has caught more steelhead than I could ever hope to catch in a lifetime but never on a bobber and jig. Well I forced the bobber rod in his hands all day and he got not one but 3 on a jig today.............

First......Nice Nate.....

Second....Nice Broodstock....

Third.....Little Nate.....

We got this beauty on a plug.......

These are the two we kept.........

Today was great.........5 for 5 , 4 of which came on First Cast Jigs , following a banner day of 8 for 11 with Dad on Saturday. All those were on plugs.....go figure. Thanks dad for a great couple of days on the creek and I'm looking forward to the next trip.... :cheers:

Thanks also Dano, enjoyed your company today....

John

John to be able to go steelhead fishing with your Dad is great. That looks like a purple/cerise jig in the first pic. Nice fish.

Two on kingfisher blue/pink, one on purple and cerise ,and one on beaded pink/white. The first fish was way upper teens but the camera wouldnt turn on ,so it got released with no picture.

I was thinking about the world around us, and how fast it moves. We get caught up in the ratrace and lots of times we dont take time to do the things that are the most important to us. I love going fishing with my dad , it is something that is very important to me. Every chance I get, I cherish the time and the conversation.

For winter steelhead fish your jigs under a fixed float a couple feet off of the bottom.

I have several how to tips on my website. Click on the signature on the bottom of my post.

FM-

Looks like your still whacking a quite few over there. 8 for 11, that's a great day. :bowdown: , and a follow up of 5 for 5 ain't too shabby either :dance:

I think I'm gonna head over that way myself this weekend, just a little further south is all.

Lookout big bad steelies, here I come


See ya on the water or the baitshop :wink: ,

John-

Neither of the days are clients, and if it's good, I'll stick around Sunday too.

I'm thinking more of sneaking into Marty's neck of the woods actually, although I kinda want to check out the area your pics are from.Hmmmm....decisions,maybe a day on each :shrug:

Say hi if you see me around. I'll be in one baitshop or another bright and early Saturday.

Chris :cool:
