This giant largemouth was caught by our good friend Lucas Holmgren of Lamiglas Rods in Woodland, WA just a short time ago this winter. He was kind enough to share!
More from Lucas and Lamiglas soon and often.

For those of you that don’t know. Now you know. This is definitely the way to row. Whether you go with the Edge shafts and blades….you absolutely MUST go with the Loks if you want to be a better oarsman. Period. I’ve had people tell me they ‘don’t need them because they know how to row just fine.” That’s a joke. You use these loks and you’ll double your efficiency, speed and control. h3llcat out.
Special thanks to my Dad’s crew at the coast. Fooking DANDY fish. The both of them. Rivers on the North coast finally dropped into shape last week and George Buckingham and Bruce Cramer made the best of it. Working the river mainly “bobber dogging” they went 3 for 6 with some very bright and feisty fish. The biggest fish was a reported 17 pounds and put up a hell of fight. Thanks for sharing the pics.

“First couple days of 2016 produced. Little Chromesidez (Brandon Holland) hooked up with me and we put up double digits on canyon country steelhead. Bobber and tiny baits of eggs, light drifted yarnball+eggs, and my go to fixed float and jig all produced many hookups. This is a very good start to 2016, hoping the momentum holds.

Saturday was a pretty damn cool day. Yes the weather was chilly but I’m speaking of the three boats for four anglers caravan that rocked the river all day with no one around. Nick Nelson and I each had our own boats which was a real treat from a rowing standpoint. And also very versatile. While Pigsticker and Ghostface Killer, LEGACY AAAers, mirrored our float. Each boat caught fish and tons of fun was had. I am going to first post a series of pictures that Ghostface Killer shot throughout the day. I also have a video collage of some various stuff coming up.

Do you ever feel like you have just spent an entire day hiking more than fishing this time of year? I suppose I should say “Welcome to steelhead bank angling” because that’s exactly what I did with two friends the other day. Hike. Hike more. Fish a little. Hike. I’ve become used to rowing my boat more than hiking the past couple years so it was nice to switch things up. The water was still high on most local water that weekend but we found this little beautiful stretch I’ve shown before. Here’s a few pics from the trip. Have any of you guys been getting out?
