I was invited to call in to Comcast Sportnets show "Outdoor GPS" last Saturday to discuss kayak fishing as well as the upcoming seminar at Fisherman's Marine and Outdoor. The host, Owin really seems to be interested in these Hobie Kayaks. He's a huge duck hunter and sees a whole other side of these kayaks as platforms for shooting ducks. More to follow soon...
I got into this fiesty Summer Steelhead from my kayak using a Prawn Spinner. This fish was in the air more then it was in the water. At one point the fish jumped close to 5' out of the water.. Woo hoo!!
I returned for more action the next night and got lucky again with a nice 16# and 34" Springer. I love this time of year.
I caught this bright chrome Springer wed night using a prawn spinner near Portland, OR. Weighed in at 17# and measured 34.5"
A few weeks ago I decided to head for some Salmon and Sturgeon action. After the Salmon bite turned off for a bit, I decided to take a break and focus on Sturgeon. After being anchord for only 20 minutes, a couple older guys ended up running me down with their jet sled. Lucky for me nothing was broken, including my back. Scary day on the river!

Here's what happens when a Sea Lion decided to steal my Chinook Salmon while kayak fishing. I had just decided to hit the river Friday evening after work and was trolling the edges of the river when then Springer hit. It started as a really soft bite, but quickly excelerated into a lot of hot action. I had seen a couple Sea Lions pass by an hour earlier, but hadn't seen anything recently so thought I could play the fish for a couple minutes before netting . I was just about to to reach back for my net when this Sea Lion sneaks up below water, grabs my Salmon and takes off like a bat out of hell for deeper for the deeper river, eventually breaking off my Springer at the head. You'll see me reel in the head at the end and notice how the Sea Lion tears appart my dinner in the river right next to me. Fur bag!!!!
