Started out yesterday and put in at St Johns and headed to Davis Bar, and I think every one had the same idea,never seen so many boats. So we went back up the willy, all day and nothing seen 2 fish caught was getting ready to call it a day when my son said fish on:clap::clap: finally but something was wrong :think: it just wanted to pull real hard I told him he was snaged so i put the engine in reverse so he could try to get it loose when all of a sudden it started girking and this is what it was and of course back in the water it went for another day:( and off to home we went.

started out today doing the same, back to the willy and boy was it great, my son came out of it with his first Chinook, and what a beauty it was. so all in all we had a great 2 days just wish we could have kept the sturgeon it sure would have smoked up good
