Fishing with two or three night crawlers on 2/0 Gamakatzu circle hooks, with 3 oz sinkers, Jason put fish in the boat…and kept putting fish in the boat like this one pictured here.
I have to apologize for the lack of photo’s as inadvertently became Jason’s video camera man while he brought in fish after fish. I brought in fish after his too…but they happened to be Jumbo White and Red Horse Suckers…enough in fact that Ryan, Catten Addicts son and I were neck an neck on taking the title Sucker King! I think there is going to be pleanty of photos following this report to make up for my lack of shutter bugging.
Yes, I admit it…I had my picture taken with ANOTHER one of Jason’s fish! But you know what they say…a good guide always makes sure his guests catch the largest fish!
Jason’s 39 lbs night bite sturgeon!
As these fish come in the river to spawn they follow the old river bed which is roughly 30 feed deep. There are some good 40 foot holes that were producing good fish too. As they follow these beds, they keep there noses in the currant much like a salmon…until something like a falls or a dam stops them. These are great areas to fish too.
I know there’s a bunch of photo’s out there just waiting to be posted!
