    UYB said you were going to the Swap meet so I did not come up to pick up the tailgate.

    Well, I'm either going steelhead fishing on the Willamette or up to Hills creek in the AM depending on how much rain we get tonight.

    The fresh trout were tasty last night:D

    Now if the weather cooperates it's off to do a little steelhead fishing. I LOVE towing the boat with my Blazer. The short wheelbase makes backing into a ramp a breeze!

    Good luck with the fishing. Hope you catch some of those steelhead.
    I'm heading to the gulf tomorrow and hope to be fishing offshore by Thursday. The following weekend we are going out around 10-15 miles to hunt for some grouper, tuna and other various big fish.
    April is the start of the Tarpoon run, I hope to hit one of them.
    Sweet boat & rig!!

    Wow, as close as you are to the Columbia I'm surprised you have not been out fishing on a boat there!

    Thanks for holding on to the tailgate! It will be the end of the month when I can come pick it up as I have School stuff this Saturday and have to finish taxes:mad: this weekend, and Easter is Sunday, and the following weekend is opening of fishing season and I have reservations at a campground up on the pass to fish 2 lakes.

    Perhaps I should bring the boat up sometime for a CK5 waterborne meet & greet :D

    Thanks! I just got the boat last year - takes a while to put the cash together for the down payment. It's hard on gas but I love running the rivers with it!

    I have only been tarpon fishing once - what a blast! For us it's salmon fishing in the pacific and the rivers or steelhead and sturgeon in the rivers.

    Just don't let the boat end up like the couch;)

    Cheaper on fuel that way. You also have more $$$ for adult beverages. Down side is if you puke over oboard it hits the shop floor. :D
