troutmasta ;where in newberg do you fish is it buy boat or bank i have tried from rodgers landing up around the deep hole on the upper end of deer island with no luck but i have seen kids catch small shakers off the landing thanx bbonco
8 shakers and 2 keepers, thats a pretty good ratio there. That was a pretty good area the few times I went during April. In the 3 trips I went we caught keepers every trip. Still fun even though you had to throw them back.
Went back out this morning for about 4 hours and between my dad and me got 17 shakers to the boat. Even had doubles on twice! Had some that were fairly close to keeper size but since its a non-retention day didn't bother messuring. Had to leave early because the wind started picking up and all the recreational boaters were showing up. I will upload some pics in a bit, gotta find my cord.
