I can't help but laugh every time I drive past the bowling ally in Gladstone. There are about fifty people there at any given time snagging fish and other peoples line while the mouth seems to be nearly deserted and just as productive. I hooked a nice coho minus one fin yesterday right next to the boat ramp. You won't catch me standing shoulder to shoulder with any one. All you need is some patiance and some room to fish and its a lot more fun.
