Launched at Cathedral park/St. Johns, 7 am. fished up to Swan island basin, then jumped spot to spot all the way to the mouth of the Multinoma channel. Fished just above 2 guides for an hour and a half. Saw them land 1 keeper and a few shakers( the guide boats were just above the St. Johns bridge, on the Cathedral park side). 4 boats in that row. Saw 1 oversized caught. Move to the Toyota hole with 50-75 other boats. Shakers....3-4. Went all the way to Kelly point. Windy, rough, muddy, etc. 5-6 boats scattered, not in the deep hole, just scattered. Fished off the corner of Sauvie Island for an hour. The little "bathtub " below us kept bailing every 15 minutes. They had a keeper tied to the boat. Watched them land 2-3 shakers.Finally went back up to St. Johns Bridge, Hwy 30 side, til it was rainin so hard, we quit. That was around 6 pm. 12-13 fish. Biggest was 36 inches. Guess we werent in the right place at the right time... definitely want to go again. 100$ to fill the Durango, 25$ to top off the boat. 35$ for bait.....fishing for sturgeon on the "Willy".....PRICELESS !:clap:

Mostly the same story for saturday. Better weather was the only change :D. Fished the first half of the day for 7 shakers, 3 over 30". The rest were 20"-30". didn't see any keepers caught and just a few very small shakers caught from the other boats.
