Buddy Shaw jetted up the Clearwater River from Lewiston, ID last Wednesday with his 4-year-old son and they teamed up for this sweet 26-pound spring Chinook.
Buddy said that he got his plunking rig (a Spin-N-Glo and a tuna ball) out into the water and then had to help Jr. with the Call of Nature in the woods. When they came back, the rod was pegged and he set up on the nice king. After a 20-minute battle, dad realized that he was going to have a tough time fighting and netting the fish at the same time so he talked the little man through the process. Obviously, the kid did a great job!
For his efforts, Buddy is entered into our Hawg of the Month of the Contest, in which he has a shot at winning some Pautzke’s gear. Should he advance to the Hawg Bowl Playoffs later this year, Buddy could win a fishing trip for two with Bill Swanny Swann of Swanny’s Fishing. For his work with the net, Jr. better be invited on that trip!
