The wind forecast looked bad on Saturday so I rescheduled my Guided Educational fishing trip to Sunday. Dirk braved the Saturday wind with his friends Roger and Tony and it paid off. They landed a 17 lb. springer in the Multnomah Channel. Nice job guys. My Sunday guided trip was a success for my customer, Rich Wehring. He landed a 15 lb. wild springer near the Hawthorne bridge. We trolled four rods with a mixture of orange label and green label herring. The fish took the whole orange label bait and ran. It was a stunning takedown and I instinctively grabbed the rod thinking we were hung up. Once I felt the vibration of a fish I immediately handed the rod to Rich. He did a great job fighting the fish and we easily got it into the net. The fish counter reported two fish caught for 21 boats so it really was a slow day. Things should start to pick up this coming week so don’t get discouraged. Tight lines.
