Shake It Til You Make It!

That is the slogan for the “Brian Grant” foundation…We have been super busy around this country, for sure…

Over the weekend, we fished in the “first annual”, Rick Leach Parkinsons Tournament.  Rick is part of our family, and Brian is a very good friend.  The river was, lets say, a little busy.  I could`nt resist, and had to do atleast one picture of the event.  Sara is going to do another post at her leisure, and do a photo album link to our social media sites…

For now, here is a shot of our skeleton crew!  Me, a ginger, and retired Navy dude, a young motor mouth kid, and a dude in a wheelchair!  How about that for a gangsta group?  We were loud, had good conversations and laughs, and had fun, with 1000 of our closest friends.

We Got Nothin`

No caption, just tired.  Steelhead fishing remains pretty good here at the coast.  Going to see if we can grab a couple for ourselves over the next few days.  The rest, working on bookings for the summer and fall, yard work, gear, crab, clam, email, social media, treatment, healing, and whatever else we can find to do…

So, if anyone wants to go catch something, just let us know.  For now, going to just do our thing.  Might take a break from this thing for a while.  So, if you want to reach us, we`ll be around…P1000213

Good Gear…

From time to time, we come across some pretty cool things.  This is one of them.

We recently had some friends here, and became involved with Mustad America, in a small way.  Cannot Thank them enough.  What many don`t know, is that they have more than hooks.  Way More!

Check them out, and see.  Hooks, pliars, dry bags, swivels, tied rigs, fly hooks, knives, and a bunch more…And, make sure you check with the rest of our links, for more cool things.  We`ll give all a good mention as we head through Spring….

Way Back…

This was the first Chinook I ever caught in the ocean.  We were moored at Riverbend in Newport.  That place is now just a run down storage area now.  Full of junk, as it once was a booming marina!  That place was packed and super busy all of the time.

It was caught in the prop wash of our boat. Tokamo!  It bit a two day old anchovy, that had dried to the deck, with crappy line, and rusty hooks!  There you go, a shot from long ago, a blast from the past…At least there was a bright spot from time to time.  The rest is another story.blognewport#1

The Messenger…

Had an amazing day the other day!  Solved a lot of problems, but nice to cruise the river, with no pressure.  There are always twists and curves, but things eventually work out, and the issues ease.  That is what the river helps with.  Either way, no details, just a nice day, with a really good dude.  A caught a Hell of a lot of fish too.  In between hail squalls atleast.
