Ventured on up to Portland to try our hand at springers..Not bad for newbies..We went 8 for 14,released 2 high fins and brought home 6..

I kinda like springer fishing..:D

Any of you guys see the Ifish - fish that had about 6 plug cut herring in its belly after it got filleted? Its amazing what they can do.

I love that pic...I did learn one thing about springers..That you need to check your leader after every fish..I shoulda had another,but after a vicious strike I had no fish...Reeled in and I didn't have the back hook on my slider rig...Those teeth are BAD...LOL.I changed a few leaders after that..LOL

Makes me wonder why I wasted my time on the Columbia. I need to learn the lower Willy trolling zones.
