went up to portland for a concert and woke up the next day around 10:00 am ready to get my line wet, went down to the walking bridge seen some guys fishing off one of the docks so i decided to join.....squished down my barbs just incase i got a sturgeon, threw on some bait and tossed out.
didn't know really what i could possibly catch just wanted to fish....waited a while, somethin started bitting but didn't take the hook, reeled in to check my gear, rebaited and tossed out. waited about 10 minutes when my pole started slamming, grabbed it set the hook, fight was on. pulled out line gained someback, she tries to go under the docks, worked her out. got her in on an 8# leader, i guess im glad she was a shaker...not a keeper but my first banked sturgeon, the guys i sat next to werent to happy sense they had been fishing sense 7:30am

Nice fish!!! Back when I was training I would run the Wate Front at night durring the summer and I always saw people fishing off those docks on the east side. I will have to go and give it a shot durring the day some time. I'm always a lil bit weary about fish out of down town Portland.
