So did Jennie catch the only Springer in Tillamook County? Seems like it's been pretty quiet.

Anything happening in the lower or upper T-Bay?

Any predictions for the coming weekend from the Ifish guides?

I think that Coastal Springers have never been a red hot fishing opportunity, but when you get one, they are BEAUTIFUL!

...and yes, I really did mold power bait on my hook. What kind? Yellow trout with glitter. Tee hee!

I'm not convinced it had anything to do with it, but who knows? :shrug:

Like always, I fish just to be fishing. :smile:

I haven't heard anything else. There are boats, however at the ghost hole. I drove by today and honked. Lucky critters. :smile:

I want to catch one on bobber and eggs now. I have never gotten a springer that way. I'm going to! :smile:

Has anyone heard of any more Wilson fish?

Fished the Wilson Monday. The one other boater we talked to on the river said he nailed a summer and saw a big chinook chase his spinner up to the boat. We saw a few steelies and had some hits but no takers. Caught a few nice cuts' down low. That was it. Nice day on the river though.

Person we talked to fishing off the bank said he got into five springers on the other river to the south.

My partner Wayne and I caught four beautiful keeper springers, two weekends ago, plus a couple keeper lings - in and out of the bay - but who's counting? Not only do you have to be lucky enough to HOOK one, you then need to battle the sea lions.... I would compare it to hitting four jackpots at Chinook Winds casino. You just never know... Keep the transient killer whales coming. Steve.

Thank you for the reports!

The tides don't look so great, so I think we'll take our lowered expectations and seal repellant down to the lower Bay, and pull some herring around in the Jaws and CG Hole and see what happens?

One last question, has the bite been at the usual times - turn of the high tide and low slack? Or some other times? I sure like the times when we can fish a good bite in the Jaws during the incoming. Thanks again.

I guess it was bumpy out there today. Be careful!

Uh... lessee... We caught ours around the middle of the outgoing.

In the morning I'd probably want to be out by the jaws if the ocean is calm.
