HI EVERYONE, Just wanted to start by saying thanks to AA for all the advise you gave me yesterday on bobber fishing man did it work, I can't brag to much because I forgot my damn camera at home BUT!! I got the STINK OFF ME finally :dance::dance::dance::dance: started out at the fishing store in Tillamook and bought me and the wife a new ABA Garcia 8'6 pole real nice, and picked up some 1/2 oz inline weights for the rigs and then off to the river started at Sollie smith and nada nothing so we moved to the guide shop and that's when it happened BAM fish on landed a 24 1/2 " 13 3/4 lb chinook :dance::clap::dance::clap: BUT it was a native SOOOOO back to the river it went:(:(:( and how that hirt But gotta do what ya gotta do ya know maybe next time. Loved the river out of all the rain and all the wind we didn't get wet or wind blown it was a great time on the Wilson today, Next time I wont forget my camera got one in my tackle box now HAHa:lol:

congrats on the first fish.
Did you really put a hook type scale into the gills/behind the gillplate of a wild chinook?

Those net scales are pretty nice. We use 'em on the Situk, and in a couple other rivers, like Drift Creek in AK. But thanks for the good words! I appreciate it. Just tryin to steer you in the right direction is all! And I'm glad you shook the skunk finanlly. I told ya the Wilson is a good one! Haha!:lol: Nice work man!
