Just about the time everyone forgets about coho Steve ‘Hustler’ Gustafson and his Pops, Gus, go and put a hurt on a few. I’ve been real proud of Steve’s development as an angler of small rivers. He has passed a lot of knowledge onto his father as well and they are both now having success. It ain’t always about the big boats. I know they don’t need any help there 🙂

Words from the angler..

“Hey Man,

It was a great day. I took my dad to the river and we had a killer morning. Hooking 8 fish between the two of us my dad came out on top going 2 for 5 and his 2 were minty-bright hens. One of them was quite possibly the brightest, whitest coho I have ever seen. See the pictures. I went 1 for 3 and landed a nice buck.

Well I have been going since 3:45am and had major finsomnia so I am going to click send and hit the sack. Tight lines.”
