      Always sucks to see any good sized fish die not too familiar with pike minnows but hopefully they taste good if not the catfish bait it is

  9. Details: Smallmouth Bass with a 1 1/2 in. Glass shad rap on the ultralite.

    Headed out for about an hour. Low mid 70s 10 mph wind. Pulled up 3 fish on crank baits this being the biggest. Not a bad way to spend an hour. Bites becoming more ...more consistent on the Willamette.
