Finally!

The drought is OFF my boat!

Whenever my boat and I fished, I sat and stared at the river, magazines from 1999, played with the fish finder, figured out my GPS, listened to the VHF -- EVERYTHING BUT CATCH A FISH!!!


Last summer was largely spent watching others catch fish and spend hour upon hour sitting on the boat going up and down and up and down.

No more.

Today we hit the river around 11:30 and not an hour into the trip...WHAMMO!!! A nice 24 lb. (got a fish scale) chinook in the box.

Yeah.

The rest of the day was dead. Very few fish around St. Helens where we were anchored.

I hate fishing upstream from Team Carrot. :wink:

So far, the two fish I have gotten from the area have been pretty good.

Just starting to turn on their tails.

Otherwise, the meat looks nice.

I might actually be starting to get a clue!

I blotted out the sun??

What? I was orbiting the sun with a napkin getting the grease off of it?


Oh, you say, "I'm too tired, we have to go home now" Of course it is right during rush hour traffic...

Come to find out the old guy is fishing tomorrow too and wanted his beauty rest....nice.

I will remember this pops.
