    Lightweight kayak fishfinder

    I am looking at adding a fishfinder to my kayak, but want to keep the weight down as much as possible. I like what I read about the RayMarine Dragonfly4. I am cautious though not knowing what I would need for a battery. I do not want to pack a large 12 volt battery. I have looked into the...

    Vacation day two

    The back wasn't feeling like a 90 minute drive to the coast this morning so I headed back to Hagg. I launched at Ramp C again and headed straight to Scoggins arm. I was anchored up and flipping the bug wand by 7:00. By 8:00 I had lost count of the Gills that had succumbed to the rubber leg...

    All about the take!

    While fishing some structure in a cove at Hagg this morning (with zero luck) I had a fish start busting the surface just feet off the bank behind me. I maneuvered over and watched the area. Finally I saw the culprit, a nice smallie cruising this space. I tossed plugs and soft baits to no avail...

    Uneventful Hagg report

    I made it out to the lake around 10:30 this morning. I decided to leave the boat home and toss spinners from the bank. The water was like glass and there were only 2 boats that I could see. I was kinda regretting the boat decision. The bank anglers were few and far between. Other than the bank...

    Free boat anchor chain and rope

    I found this a couple of years back. Tried to find the possible owner with no luck. I have no use for it. The anchor and chain come to about 10lbs. Free to whom ever can use it and willing to come and pick it up. I live in Aloha and work in Beaverton.

    Fall chinook reg question

    Under the general fall season it states open for Chinook salmon Aug1-Dec31. Is this both wild and hatchery? I questioned a gal from ODFW last year and she said if it does not specify hatchery it would mean both. She didn't sound too convincing though. Siletz River and Bay • Open for hatchery...

    Braid or not to braid

    No its not my hair! I have 14lb. mono on my spinning reel for surf fishing. I am considering braid with a 6'-8' mono leader to cut down on line twist. I am using swivels but the rolling in the surf is still twisting the heck out of things. The only downfall I can think of with the braid is no...

    Riddle me this Batman

    So several months ago we received a notice in the mail from C#####t that we may need to replace our cable box due to them upgrading things. I called them and was told that the box was good for a few more years and we were fine. Well now all of a sudden we have channels with sound and no picture...

    The speedo in the truck quit working. The shop diagnosed a faulty speedo sensor and ordered a new one. Took the truck in this afternoon to get it installed. Well the supply house sent the wrong one. Now I have to wait till Wednesday morning. Guess it will be a later start to the river:sad:.
