Hitched a ride with Oxbow today looking for Bows. It was my first time hitching a ride with another Sniffer. I had a ball. We met at the gh ramp at 0545. headed to Carson cove. Found out one downrigger was down for the count, oh well. Larry dropped the other side and I put out a surface line.
Got one Bow 2 5# at 64ft on a silver apex. that was the first and last hit of the day.
I enjoyed my time with Larry and am looking forward to doing it again.
I learned quite a lot from him on how to use the downriggers.
thanks Larry

Fun day on the water snoose, even if the fishing was slow, thanks for coming along.

Fishing may have been slow, but it sure beat my day behind the desk fighting this head cold. May be just a bit early for those bows, but it is just around the corner. We all know Oxbow will find those babies.
Thanks for the report.

Like Ironhead said, that fall rainbow bite is right around the corner and boy am I excited! Congrats on getting out on the water and trying your luck though. I haven't been out targeting bows since probably April, I am definitely due.

Snoose,
I recently had a trip with Larry, and like you it was my 1st time fishing with another sniffer.
I found him to be good company, and someone with good knowledge of fishing that he would share.
And a good story teller too!
Definitely 1st class in my book.

lite drag, amen to that but we better not swell the old farts head too much ;) ;)
I learned enough from him to go flyin the ball with tortuga and griffonder tomorrow.
You youngins might call that bouncing but the man at the helm is flying that sucker.
I just got the ok from the old lady to hang the name "Flyin The Ball" on the party barge.
Tortuga and griff will be my button men but I am driving. I dont fear those humps anymore and have told tortuga I wont kill him if we hang up.
And Yep, Larry has a lot of wisdom. It aint all just stories.

You can probably wear anything you want at my age but it would be pretty ugly if I wore my birthday suit. * ;D
