:smiley_turkey_pop_up_log: Ive got them on lures before . Fun fish to catch . they are super preds they eat alot of the steal head and salmon fry. But they are one of the few native fish to the vally.
You can hop but you can't hide. Yahi Bowmen. Its not how far you can shoot but how close to the game you get when you shoot. Sights we don't need any sights. Why waist time reloading when I can be making arrows.

Apparently you haven't been keeping up with your political correctness lessons. No more "squaw" anything since it offends Indi.., uh, native Americans. It's now called a Northern Pike Minnow. lolThere's a bounty on them up here and a few people actually make a good living catching them. Up on the Okanogan River in North Central Washington you can catch one every third cast or so. When I first moved there I went steelhead fishing and was catching them and would release them but after I found out what they were and the kinds of devastation they were causing on the salmonids I just threw them up in the bushes on the bank.

that pike minnow put up a good fight it was fun. I goggled the squaw fish and read up on it I didn't know they did so much harm .Years ago they poisoned a lake do to pike being introduced and they were eating up all the native fish. Here is a pic of my freinds bass he caught,Posted Image

strange what fish will bite on. Sunday I flipped a fluke out on the lake and caught a bass. Moved over by these trees and flipped it out again and caught a trout, about 17 inches on the same fluke. Now that was after being upstream seing trout and using my fly rod for the trout and not catching a thing. :smiley_turkey_pop_up_log:
