got the green light for a day of vacation yesterday so blueberry bill and i hit the columbia just below the willamette. anchored up in 20', wrapped our kwiks, slatered them with goo and sent them for a swim. about 2 hours pass and blamo!!! my rod goes down hard. gave it plenty of time, set the hook and it stuck. got it to the boat and saw it was smooth in all the right places and bill scooped it into the net.it was kinda weird, never had to throw the anchor the crazy thing never ran more than about 50 feet from the boat. probably too fat. thanks silver hilton for your help. this delectable beauty tipped the scales at 22lbs. was my second springer of the year out of 5 trips.
