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
