We took my friends girlfreind and her younger brother on a columbia river sturgeon guide, she had caught a few keepers and a bunch of shakers so she thought she was ready for the oversize big dogs.....you should have heard her the night before....lets just say, she "thought" she was ready.......Im thinking her man might get alittle bit more respect when he says he's tired after a day of fishing...

Man that got my heart pumping and I wasn't even on the boat! What a great video to remember the trip with. That is a fish of a lifetime, and only a dream for most of us.
Congradulations on a great trip. Are you going to do it again?

lol, well you might want to bring your tent along with your fly rod lol ud be there for a bit (not sure if getting one on the fly is possible, if it is i would love to hear) I usually take a trip once a year, and if you can't hear it my heart is racing while filming. its an amazing experience and i would have to say Todd brenton from BRENTONOUTDOORADVENTURES is an amazing guide, and person. So i book the oversize once a year if i can.....give it a shot...best time is late may early june....it will be worth putting the fly rod down just for one day
