I took Marvin up on his special offer he had to go sturgeon fishing. Well the fish didn't want to play but it was still a good day on the river. I really learned a lot from Marvin, not just about sturgeon but about all the fishing in the area. I would recommend to anyone to look him up and take a trip.

thanks Marvin

I still think the smelt had something to do with it.

The last few days there were lots of sea lions around, Saturday we did knot see any sea lions. I think they found a pilot run of smelt somewhere and that were the sturgeon were to.

But I do think next weekend will be different..

Bananas Bad Luck for Fishing

Bananas Bad Luck for Fishing

I too took to the river with Marvin on Saturday. I have to apologize to bbcapt and my buddies for eating a banana on my way up the highway to meet at the dock. :shock:Sure, the banana wasn't actually on the boat but I think the fishing gods know I had eaten it. :naughty:Not only was it bad luck for us, but it seems as though the whole Channel and Columbia River fishery was off that day. :(Marv and crew tried to convince me to bite the head off a squid or herring to break the curse but I couldn't do it. :confused:My new nicknames are now-banana boy and yellow belly. Yikes! :rolleyes:I will never eat bananas again on a day I am going fishing. If you don't believe it's true search "bananas bad luck for fishing" on google. :think:Very interesting!!
Anyway, I learned a lot and had a good time-thanks Marv!:D
