I've been reading the posts all week about the fish being caught so I decided I better head out and get in on the action. I got on the water about 6pm. I went to the Washington riverfront but it would've taken an hour to get in the water. I ended up putting in at Beouff Creek which is a little out of the way, but not many people use it. I fished some different spots in the channel until 9pm or so with no hits. I moved to some shallower water and setup. I was kind of watching the debris becasue it had steadily been picking up, but not bad. I had setup behind a dike that was keeping most of the small junk out to the channel. At 12pm the boat took a big hit and the anchor let loose. It wasn't moving fast, but it was moving. A huge tree was stuck on the front of the boat. I got my stuff reeled up, started the motor to hold my ground, and finally got the tree broke free. This kinda shook me up to say the least. I was going to go to another spot that I thought would be more protected. When I got out in the channel it was like playing bumper cars. There were trees and branches everywhere. I was about 10 miles from the ramp, no way I was gonna make there in the dark. I found a nice washout in the bank behind a dike and anchored up for the night. I got up this morning and motored my way back. The river had cleared up some, and it wasn't too bad in the daylight anyway. I ended up catching one samll channel and an asian that jumped in the boat. What a night!
