got this lil over 5 and a half lb summer while plunking at meldrum for salmon...pretty bright but the weather kinda shadowed it..had two more rod rattling hookups but missed..side swiped or whatever....anyhoo good dinner...i washed the fish and was getting back from water to hang the fish on tree when this guy ( who was new to this salmon and steelhead thing ) asked me if i wanted a pic and he can email me...why not:)...i was still holding the fish by tail..and it started raining ....
Thanks man...

Good job Raj! Pretty fish...
Looks like you werent fishing the actual Bar, but what they call the Garden Hole maybe? I think I saw ya down there! Not too many fish gettin picked up down there. The only one I saw yesterday was a sucker/squaw/whatever. And the day before that my spot was bamboozled by Mr. Sea Skunker (sea lion) thrashin' salmon right in front of me. Ill see if I can find the pics.

On another note. Seems to be a lot of plunker reports of fish being caught of late. It has occured to me a "Team Plunker" may be in order;):D...

Thanks Fishtopher..yeah it was not at the "proper" bar but garden hole or what its called broken bulkhead..cuz at the end there's a broken bulkhead.. this guy who's a regular there...i was standing by his rod and his rod went down in starnge way..and he pulled this sucker fish which was hooked on the back...this was on saturday...
I know i feel like throwing rocks at those sea lions when they devour a salmon which was suppose to be on our grill or smoker...man..i don understand how ODFW is trapping or shooting or doing whatever with those sea cats:rolleyes:
I bonked a fish then this other guy who's also a regular bonked one. Although like I said my rod rattled 2-3 times and good but guess fish didn't stayed and was just "drive by".
what surprised me that I was using the big spin n glo with whole cured prawn and susually that size steelies avoid that big of a bait...but then water was quite murky..so ...
Lately it started pickin up. I believe this coming saturday should prove a good day as it'll stop raining like a day and a half before...I still have to catch a salmon there for this season.
Come on down there next time you see me.. will be good to fish with a fellow OFF'er.

I too was at the bulkhead on sat. Had the whole gang with me! I fished right next to it cuz it was kinda windy! Thats where the sea monster showed his ugly mug. My kids thought it was cool but when i told them that "we probably wont catch a fish now, and we were in the fish obviously or the sea lion probably wouldnt have even been there to begin with", they started yelling at the sea lion to go bug someone else:lol:.

I might get down there somewhere today and do some birthday fishin' after my wife gets home. Steelhead of course. Or maybe some c-n-r sturg'n.

Here's the sea monger pics.

Here you can see my line barely in both pics.

And here the beast rears it's ugly head.

I watched him down river aways chew up somethin' in front of the other plunkers. I was hopein' he would have pushed a few fish upriver as he was come'in up. One little bump and that was it.
