Finally made it up to a little SW Washington river today. Fished eggs, prawns, cooners for over an hour, only had two good bobber downs. Switched to a #6 TCO spinner and third cast, WHAM! 8lbs of chrome summer steel!! She put up a great fight, going aerial 3 or 4 times and doing her best full body hook spitting routine at the waters edge. However, she INHALED the spinner and was suffering from a hickory headache shortly. Feels great to finally put one on a tag, even if I had to go to WA to do it!! The best part is I built that spinner myself!!
