All kidding aside Osmo worked it like a champ, Without question we put it to every section of holding water from Riverside to nearly Barton. Even employed some new techniques to no avail. I did manage to hook up a native juvenile steelhead that had not made it to the salt. (much larger than a smolt to be sure). Osmo gently released it back to the wild and our hunt continued. Mid way through our adventure the weather started turning ugly and visions of FAT Witchia Burgers danced in our nuggets. By 3:00 we gave in to our need to feed and called it an outing.
If I had been able to capture a legal fish I would have interrogated it on the cutting board until it gave up information that could have lead us to others members of its fishy insurgency.
One thing about fishing with Osmosis, you don't "want" for anything. He runs a tight ship and has everything you'd need. Coons were a staple bait for the adventure. On recent trips he's made, there are photos where if you look closely you'll see the plethora of enticements he has staged and ready to go.
It ain't him or any lacking on his part... Dare I say it........ It might well be me!
Perhaps the mistake I made yesterday was NOT to have grabbed Fishtopher flung him to the ground and rubbed my body all over his to get some good luck smeared on me.... When he had his back turned and I had the chance
Good Luck Gents. I'll be east of the Bonneville Dam tomorrow trying my luck with springers. Lets hope we get some better weather as yesterday was god awful. Barely made it home alive from the Cowlitz...Crazy Oregon Drivers...There was a crash on every freeway...Let's all slow it down in this nasty weather. We all have families to get home to and friends on here that want you home safe. If you get home 20 or 30 minutes later than expected so be it...At least you're getting home alive Take care and be safe everyone. FISH IT UP !!!
Hey bro. Cowlitz was beautiful but silent. No bites all day. A couple jacks got taken down around us but that was it. The locals were claiming it was a rare day but you never know. Can't wait to see those movies. Peace
