Well....

As mentioned we were out on Sunday. Nice day considering the crap weather that has gone on. We made it out for ~9:00 shooting for the tide at ~10:45 or so.

Managed a nice 10ish lb scrappy coho that as you will see was hooked really deep. Then we also manged a nice ~24lb spring right as we said "it's probably time to head in". Lost 3 other good hookups.....one spring for sure and the other 2 didn't get close to enough to get a look, but all felt likely fairly good fish.

Here are some pics............OH and one other thing. If your friend says..."I have a net on board it is a FAMILY HEIRLOOM"; bring your own net. His Dad went to the net the coho for me and fish went RIGHT through the net. Me thinks the netting had seen better days. So my friend decides to fix the gaping hole with some zap straps. As I go to net a nice spring guess what slides right through the net?? Ya....you guessed it, and that was a mess to try and figure out when the fish and gear has all slid through the net. :wallbash:

The last pic is kind of funny. I was supposed to be helping my girlfriend bottle wine on Sunday......ya right.....beautiful sunny that could be spent on the water!!! Anyhow....she bottled the wine and decided to name it after me "ditching out".





Sorry about the blood.....but it was hooked very deep.




Don't ever trust something like this for landing your fish!! :confused:



AND.....the fight was on.









Hmmm.......no net. :peace:



A quick shot with some patriotism throw in.



Not too bad on the "hook".......but the smile on my buddies Dad's face was awesome with this fish.



And......this is what I came back in to. I wonder if she would conider some other ones......"I've gone skiing"....."I've gone out with the boys to have a few too many beers".....I could start a full on winery here!! :drunk:

Man I tried to get out there with a buddie of mine with a solid 18 ft'er and a working 115 ob and had
to turn around at Steveston after a small craft warning was issued and 4-5ft white caps, but that was at
the mouth I guess the water was a little more stable outside of the flow....Oh well looks like you
guys did alright... :beerchug: Marko

out there around noon. :eek: marko
I left mcdonald boat ramp around 2 sunday trying to catch high slaack at the bouy.. The mouth of the north arm was ugly but got better towards the bouy.. I was debating a little when I first got out and thought I would give it an hour.. the wind was suppose to slow down and did, it turned out to be a nice night on the chuck.

warning being ecoed over the radio and all traffic in the area inclueding the coastgaurd heading the
other way finallized the captans decision...... :-X Marko

Ha ha.......ya the green hoochie was NOT my idea. I had chovies on the the other 3 rods.....btw, I was sitting in my place doing some work on Saturday and saw you out strolling down Broadway around Blenheim.

Good luck with school and drop me a line if you wanna hook up for a :beerchug:

Interesting rod set up..................... :confused:
What is so "interesting"?? :confused:
It looks very cluster like. It would hate to get a REAL big one on that back rod. :2cents:
Just not the way you see most guys rigging it. :2cents:
Looks like you have another scotty rod holder available you could try using that one instead of your in board R/H and angle it out. :2cents:

It was a bit tight......and I had not seen his set up before as there was only one Scotty Holder on there. The Scotty holder held the deep rod, while the inboard held the shallow. I am used to the set up as you describe, but had to make do with what we had. I have been out on this friends boat a few times.....but never fishing so I didn't know what to expect until we got there......hence the lovely hole in the net. :confused:
