Today we were fishing on the Columbia river below Bonneville dam. I met my clients at 6:15 am.
I decided not too fish for shad today because shad fishing has been kinda slow and I had enough from the night before.
I headed down the Columbia river. I anchored my boat in what is called the flats.
It turned out that not fishing for shad was a good idea. I got all four lines in the water and I looked over at one of the rods and it was going crazy.
I set the hook and handed the pole off. Turns out this sturgeon was 49 inches, Which is a keeper. Before I could get the pole baited up again I heard line ripping off one of the other poles.
I set the hook and the fight was on.Turns out this Sturgeon was about 7 and a half foot.
It was not a bad morning for the first hour or 2. We fished till around 1 oclock and all we ended up with shakers. Although we lost a keeper right up too the boat.
Turned out to be a great day on the Columbia river. I hope to see this family on the Columbia river again..
Until next time tight lines.
