March 27 2017- Afternoon 49 Inch Keeper Sturgeon

The water was completely open on the Columbia River with all shoots of the dam letting water go.  The water was very rough and afternoon showers hit us a couple of times.  However, the fishing really turned on with the Train Bite!  We had several hits and one that smashed a bait with the rod doubling over and still missing the hook.  However, Nicole got the next bite and set the hook on a keeper 49 Inch White Surgeon.  She fought it like a pro and after 10 minutes of play she was able to bring the keeper fish to the side of the boat!  Miles also landed a nice hard fighting little Sturgeon that we are excited to see grow up like his 12 foot cousins.
