Eastside Halloween Report

Discussion in 'Steelhead Talk' started by archman, Oct 31, 2008.

  1. Fished a river on the far east side today with Vkutsch. Played half a day of hooky from work (and the wife) and didn't expect great results considering it was the middle of the day. We ended up hooking about 20 between the two of us, and landing probably 15. All fish came on jig and maggots except for one on a plastic. Color didn't matter, but Victor did do quite well with his "special color". Tried eggs for a little bit with no takers. I was very impressed with the size. Not a single fish under 24.

    Victor, post that pic if you'd like. For some reason I couldn't get it to work.

    Muskie Jim, thanks for the advice today! Sorry about your phone call, I'll tell you about it when I call you back.

    Great day on the river. Overall, possibly my best ever. All fish were real solid and spunky, between 23-29 inches. Thanks to Joel, Bob and MuskieJim (for pointing Joel in the right direction).
    Only pic taken was first fish caught, by no means the nicest of them.[​IMG]

  5. I wouldn't say it's the best day ever, but it was a good day for this early and fishing in the middle of the afternoon for a few hours. Here's the pic again, maybe it will show up bigger than the one Victor posted.
