Hell yeah guys! It was pretty entertaining to have a group of...Malcontents, or your run of the mill outlaws just shootin the...stuff to shoot... We will surely do this again! And yes i got run all over, both up, and down the whole riffle.. I was, and have been whackin brat Steel on light Bass gear. Whadda ya expect!
BigDog - That sucks you had to leave, so far you are the one to hook-up the first fish out of a small group of us...Remember tha sled trip you had a fat one shake off! Ah, we'll get down on some more cold weather sniping soon. Hit me up next time you, or a group of you guys hit the Clackamas again. That was pretty chill.
Fishtopher - It is how I learned to fish...Old School, but yes the surgery, and gnar gnar cast force the right hand retrieve issue. Osmosis is the same way, except he is RHR all the time. I only do it from like Plug, or trolling rods, drift fishing I normally switch it up. I have way more sensitivity in my right hand, but I still can manage to stick a few here and there all busted up, and fishin backwards!
No worries about the improper greetings, it was just Osmosis and I, the two people everyone loves to hate out there! Haha. I'm sure we'll see eachother quite a bit this winter if you venture out to our home turf on the Clack.
FishFinger - Thanks Dan! It was nice to get a couple brats to the bank after all that teasin the whole day! Glad you had a good time B.Essin. with us. We do fish a little different, but it works handily, and usually is extremely adaptable to other systems. No problem on the rod, I had one in the 'Yote anyways, and it turned out to be the hot rod for the day...But that is how it is with that little flinger. If you are targeting Steel, or worse, Coho with that thing, she really likes to make you work for 'em!
All together a wicked day with some members on the Clackamas. This Forum makes it pretty easy to network a group of guys to go scale hunting. And Riverside is the perfect venue for larger groups, as that whole drift produces. So a larger number of members can spread out, and take up the only really decent stretch in the whole park! HAHA, OFF'ers are on the rise. I remember this summer it was hard to coordinate with more than one person to hook-up, but it is gettin easier with the large member base. Good luck out there all, and not too rub it in, but i took another at first light today. Same setup as yesterday. This time it was 2nd cast, no screwin off. I left before the sun came up fully, and will be at it this afternoon for the second fish. Maybe some of you will be out there?
