Me too, and I AM in Oregon!Wifey and I went out on Flathead Lake this AM and pretty much got blown off. Tried jiggin' for lakers but we were in 2-3' swells and a pretty stiff breeze. Might give it another shot in the AM.
Used to love me some salmon fishin' when I was still in Oregone.
Well I did offer you a iron clad Guarantee that anyone you brought onto my boat would “CATCH FISH.”I was invited to head out on my friends new (to him) 33’ Striper tomorrow. I’m taking my son with us, the one who still hasn’t caught a fish and he turns 14 next week. God, I hope this is the day. I’ve spent thousands in gas, food, gear, lodging, time off, and much more trying to get him a single frigging fish. Funny thing is, we don’t eat fist, but still get to pay all the bs licenses just to try to site mouth one. Tomorrow is a different story though, dropping crab pots on our way out, troll for salmon near Newport, and if that is slow or we limit out, move on to some rock fishing. The water is supposed to be pretty flat tomorrow. Wish us luck! If I don’t post any pics, we either got skunked or sank
I may still need to take you up on that, I really, really wanted to accomplish it on my own but I failed. You are a stand up person and even if we get into the fish tomorrow would still like to come and meet a great member from here.Well I did offer you a iron clad Guarantee that anyone you brought onto my boat would “CATCH FISH.”
True and now all of the sudden they are going to save all of us !!!!It’s a shame that the Fishing numbers have been squandered and miss managed by elected officials minions.
It don’t matter if they are an R or D area (look at Alaska), they both don’t know how to manage resources worth a damn because it’s all about the money (commercial fishing pays good).
Congrats! Although if you straight arm those fish, they gain about 10lbs...Yesterday on the Columbia amongst the other 100 boats. There were many fish caught.
Off the river by 900am.
However I've been out 14 times this year including Springers on the Willy. This was my first of the year.
My Buddy was more fortunate on the Willy.
