Ah, yes. It lost a good 7 inches in the first shot with the funny angle. But again, very nice fish. And the Sandy does fish hard for Chinook especially above 10.5. Glad you are makin headway, hookin fish and all lately! Those friggin Chinook really like to just slowly turn, and criuse down! I have had a couple break me off at the Dam hole already. When they just aren't ready, they just aren't ready! I have fished a Nates Baits Cure a couple times, and I will say the Last Supper blows it away in the Clackamas, but I did hook a few Chinook, and like 15 Steelhead on it when we were screwing around on the Sandylast year for a week. They were all clipped fish too. Which I think is very strange for that river. Getting over 20 to the bank, and boat, and all of 'em were keepers? Weird, but maybe Nate has tapped into the phenotypic expression that hatchery stocks have, over less convoluted "wild" stocks. Strange for sure, but sometimes you get into a bunch of clippers! Always good for us. But try it out. You know tyhe cure thing pretty well, so you'll find out quick if you like it. And I will say that some cures work better than others, depending on the chemical content in your skin, and sweat. sO like I did years ago. Try 'em all, and find one that consistently produces...But you already knew that! Anyhoo, hope the new, free Nates Bait cure works out for you. And like I said before. When they start to pile up, we will mosey up to the Dam, and harass a few!
