Just a quick thank you to all of you that have posted helpful information on the forum. Today I went out to the Wilson for the about the 17th time and I do believe I am getting the hang of it. I landed one small native and my first ever hatchery steelhead. Everything from the map, to articles on line set up were a big help. I would post a pic but I guess my file is too large so if you have any tips let me know.

On your camera use the 640x480 pixel mode when you take pics and it will work. Good job by the way! Were your fish chrome?

I was using eggs from Sunrise Baits. It was great I have never had so much action in one day.

Nice fish man! Glad all of us could pool or knoledge together to help you in your qwest. I still remember my first and it really wasn't to many fish ago. Even though I fish all the time I get shaky for anything big on the end of my line or even netting a big fish for a buddy. Again way to keep the pictures coming.
