Well,

ZaQ and I came to decision and we had our last springer trip but that was last week so I don't know what happened today cause we were out on the water causing trouble again, Got up at 2:30 am to make the journey to Tillamook, man it kills me to get up that early, this time around we brought the heavy hitter with us (Clown mouth)

All went well cept for this one guy who thought he owned the river since he was on the water at 4:30am, :hoboy: I guess a guy doesn't get respect if he rolls into a hole at 7am, I'm glad the Clown was with us or else that guy would still be crying to us oh well that's water under the bridge. :smile:

We ran into our friend Jim today, He's a local Tillamookian who is just a real nice guy everytime we see him he always has nice things to say, I wish all fishermen can be as pleasant to fish by as Jim. :cool:

OK, now on to the catching.

We had a few take downs but nothing was sticking, Den the monster take down "Where's my Bobber?" ZaQ get the net!! and that was the Hen destine to be eaten, Nice eggs too :dance: I'm glad Marie stocked her vending machine full of shrimp or else we would have been out of luck, Oh ya Marie, your vending Machine didn't except any of our 5 dollar bills only our 1's

All in all it was another slow day but it was great being with good friends and doing the thing we love to do.

Now it's time for one more day of shad and move onto the June Hogs oh I mean Summer Chinook. :rolleyes:

23 pounds of Chrome 6/12/03

We were using our eggs from the last Hen, shrimp & Carrot extract" under a float, and set around 10 feet.

Hey Clown **** !

Nope, this Mr. Grumpy was in a silver sled with a Mariner motor on the back. I have seen him down there before, he has never really been nice to us. He was quite grumpy today, I think it had to do alot with us not being locals.

Anyhow, we had a great time, and the fishing was scratchy at best. I enjoy fishing with Bobby and the Clown, they are real good people.
If Jim reads this, thanks for being a kind person and restoring my faith in Tillamook fisherman.

Hey Clown, ****!

So did you catch it where you took that picture? Nice, nice fish!!! Hopefully the whiner got to watch you catch it, that always shuts them up... or makes them go away...

Sweet fish!!! Nothing like a fresh coast springer. Let me guess: fish caught in Trask tidewater, picture taken at Mills Bridge? Either way, nice way to end your springer season.

Beautiful picture, nice job with the camera....and the rod for that matter. Great looking bright fish. Did it put up much of a fight? Hope you left a couple in the river for me!

Flatfish, you are wise in your knowledge of Tillamook bridges. True, there is no Mills Bridge on the Trask, but there sure is one on the Wilson, which would make a convenient spot to take a beautiful picture of a beautiful fish. Not sure about the pink hat though :wink:

Ah yes, the hat. We Carrots like our Lamiglas hats, Bobbers WAS red, but it has so much luck piled into it, that it has faded quite a bit and now appears pink. Mine is green and still holding its color, I am trying to break in a new black one, but it has let me down so far. XTC wears a blue one, and we all know his has been soaking in luck for sometime. 5 Cent can't seem to get anything but a towel to fit his head.
:cheers:

My vending machine does not accept the NEW 5 dollar bills.

So use 1 dollar bills and quarters.

I noticed the button sticking on the shrimp button.

Just give it a slight pop and it will adjust back to normal.

Don't feed the machine tooooo fast with quarters. It needs time to swallow them up.

Just go slow, if you can...he he he

It should work just fine!

Thanks for asking!

ZaQ, thanks for the back up on the hat, True it was once red and as muck as I want to buy a new one I can't, just think of all that good fishing mojo it has.

Blackdog, I can't believe you took a shot at my lucky hat....I'll retire it someday. :cool:


Well, we couldn't ask for a finer ending to the Springer year, Thanks everyone.

Bobby
