Okay, well ONE picture, the other two aren't uploading to ifish...grrr.

Anyway, WillametteRiverOutlaw and I fished Salem and anchored down for some stinky nooks. An hour and a half into our trip, the rod went down, WHAM!! fish on~...we brought in a nice 23 lb'er.

WillametteRiverOutlaw hooked into the second one around 3 o'clock. Sorry i don't have the picture up, it's the one thats not uploading. Anyway, was a nice 25lb'er. HOpefully i'll work more on the picture when i get home from work tonight.

Sublime

One of the best days I have had fishing springers in salem. We found that brass and green worked that day. Yesterday we threw everything in the book at em, with no luck.
It still beat staying at home. :wink:
Thanks again sublime for the trip.

Yea, nice fish. Good to meet you guy's and see that you are catching fish. I've put in about 20 hours out of Salem so far with only one fish on in my boat but it came off.

I'm gonna keep after it though. See you all tomorrow night.

These fish are notorious for being lock jawed. The key to success is location and time. Maybe slightly more emphasis on the time part. The last couple of years I have seen my hours per fish increase.

I was out Saturday by myself and managed two fish. Unfortunately both had too many fins.
