Just upgraded my 2011 Hobie Outback to the new 2019 Hobie Outback. I love my old kayak but the new one is really sweet. Much better seat, faster, more stable, has the ability to go in reverse and the cockpit layout is much nicer with more storage and much better hatch. Here she is coming home...

Went out for a few hours and caught some shakers. Everything caught and released. Anybody else know where I can catch and release sturgeon? These dinasaurs put up a great fight, the tug is the drug! Sent from my SM-G930T using Tapatalk

I type this with a light heart and leaden arms. I have not done much fishing lately and I wanted to start this year off right. The weather for New Year's day looked good so I decided to see if the Willamette river was where I had left it last. Thankfully, it was and looking none the worse...

Been going out there every now and then after it opened back up and only been catching 1 maybe 2 shakers or 1 keeper size. Went out there last week just before the rain came through and the bite was doing really well. I got 8 and hooked up 5 more times but either got snagged or broke the line...

Are there any places where you have a better chance to catch some larger sturgeon from the bank? I've had some luck catching smaller ones about 2-3ft pretty consistently behind my school and one 4.5ft. Is it possible to get some of the larger sturgeon from the bank (if so where) or is a boat...

http://www.dfw.state.or.us/news/2016/03_march/032916.asp I am trying to figure out if I could fish with two rods in the Willie or tributaries, and ONLY ONE be a sturgeon rod. So, one rod would be for sturgeon, the other, something weird like carp or catfish, or any sunfish. I called ODFW and...

I have an invitation to fish from a property on the Willamette at just on the north end of Harrisburg. Anyone fished this part of the river from the bank in pursuit of Sturgeon? I'm curious if I should take my Sturgeon rig along or just fish it for the trout I'm told are target-able there.

Hit a well known honey hole yesterday for a bit during the boy's weekly school visit, and was rewarded with this beast (beast by my standards, remember I am a reforming LMB and catfish guy, who previously resided in a So Cal wasteland void of the wonders the PNW holds). It battled just long...

So this Spring I've gotten to know the Gilbert River and its sturgeon pretty well. The tide obviously influences the Gilbert in a dramatic way, by like, uh..changing the direction it flows..and obviously this often had a big effect on the bite! (My experience suggested outgoing was best...

I had not been on the river in about a month and I was chomping at the bit to get out. When I saw the weather forecast for last Sunday I was a little worried about the wind levels but I decided venture out anyways. I chose to launch at Swan Island, as I often do in the winter since it is...

I was supposed to go to the dam, but I ended up not going, hit up West linn dock instead and that was crazy. Tons of fish jumping there, I have never ever seen sturgeon jump like that, we talking a fish every 5 minutes, and most were large! Some would jump so close to the dock, crazy. Tough...

Sunday January 17th: I have found that often when the river rises (and is warming) that the fish inside the harbor do not bite well. The 17th was no exception. I moved a lot and fished fast until I found a bite. I fished 4 spots back in the dry dock areas without a bite before I caught a couple...
