Took a solo trip to the Nestucca and went 1/3 today, all springers.. both losses were at the bank(AGAIN!).. but this one didn't get away..

Anyone want to play football???

Still had sea lice too... the rain warmed the river enough to push em up river... I saw over 15 hookups today by noon in 1 area.. only a couple landed though.. the ones I lost were even bigger then this.. they were brutes! Almost had my limit by 7am.. then again by 7:30am..

Hey nice fish man. seems like you are starting to get a few to the bank still on the hook. i am jealous, way to go. I'de play but them footballs are hard to catch and even harder to throw.

I was tossing golfball size clumps of eggs around the mouth of 3 rivers..

And yes a net would help... I own one... but the wife isn't very good on the net and trying to net one solo is hard.. I have tried!

Ohh and I did go all grizzly on 1 of them at the same spot as last time, but no camera action!

You live in the NW if you let rain stop you from fishing your only going to get to fish 3 months out of the year and that is if you are lucky :lol:

It was blue sky and not a drop of rain Saturday over there with perfect color water...

I don't listen to weather guys/gals.. I have found just going with rain in mind.... it can only get better or be what was expected.. usually ends up better the forcasted!

turns out a spinner will work also- not for me but for my girlfriend. took her all of about 5 minutes to get hooked up. i'd post a pic but can't figure that out. we fished it for about 3 hours and that was the only one caught. one other got hooked up from the opposite side of the bank but got broke off. thanks for the tip on where to go!!!

Start up a photobucket account. After you upload pics to it you can copy the IMG code and paste it into yer post, blammo, we can all see yer catch. Good job, by the way:clap:
