- Springfield, Oregon
So we took the litle boat out to the big river and jumped in to cluster **** of boats. Had to try to follow the other boats out the willy since we had never been there and got there at dark thirty. Weather was nice but the wind picked up mid day and died back down a bit before we left. The other Andy had a 20lber to the boat and right as i netted it it chewed the line and made a bigger hole in my net swimming away to live another day. I missed one a bit later and Then I got a rod! Yes rods also eat herring. Seen a handfull of boats catching fish and the most popular method was plug cut herring with variety's of flashers. We seen ever color in the book catch a fish today. Also seen a lot of green brined herring. from most we talked to it was still a slow day but heard of boats filling the limits. Most fish we seen were keepers. Couldn't believe how rough it got and then add the 1000 or so boats making wake and you get the picture. we got wet even though it never rained. It was a blast other than trying to troll with the wind. here are some pics of the day, enjoy. i can't wait to get back out and try.
