5lb Largemouth Bass.

Well if we learned anything that day, that would be that Fish bite when you least expect it. We were fishing 4" gary yamamoto senkos weightless for about an hour and we just started talking and fooling around. Jake Erdmann made a half-hearted cast and kept talking to me, I was looking at him and see his rod SLAM down. At first I thought he was just messing around when he said "Fish on!" but I stood corrected as this monster bass jumped and made an epic headshake. Skyler grabs its bottom jaw and Jake almost jumped out of his socks when he saw the size of it.

We have been trying to catch bass this size since last summer and have had many failed attempts... But we finally did it.
Great fish Jake! and I hope theres many more to come...

It was released un-harmed.

And the picture you've been waiting for, ;) This is my fancy little Jack I caught on a rooster tail! My very first spring chinook!

Crappie in Oregon

Hey everyone! I haven't posted so heres a nice crappie I caught at salish ponds! Used a size 16 treble hook. I caught about 3 more and a few more bluegills that were insignificant to this one. I'm guessing that in two or three weeks of nice weather you will be able to take your kids out to your local lake and catch bucket fulls of them! Sooner or later I will post a video of how to catch them!
