You can vote for Kevin at the end of April. Monthly winners advance to the year-end playoffs and also receive a nice care package from Yakima Bait.
Brian Sims caught this native buck steelie on the Upper Hoh River in Washington State’s OP with a Bleeding Purple Super Vibrax spinner and is now officially entered into our Hawg of the Month conest.
“I was kneeling on the log in the background and casting across a nice deep pool just upriver,” he says. “It was one of those days that would alternate between rain, freezing rain and sunshine every 15 minutes.

Indeed. At the end of the March, you the angling public, will get a chance to vote for Sims or any of the other Hawg entries. Monthly winners go to the end-of-the year HAWG BOWL Playoffs and also win a sweet gift pack from Yakima Bait, which includes a hat, shirt and assortment of salmon & steelhead lures.

Jimmy is now entered into our March Hawg of the Month Contest in which he has a chance to win some cool new headgear from the Pautzke Bait Co. If he advances, he will get to compete in the Hawg Bowl Playoffs at the end of the year and maybe, just maybe win a trip with Bill Swann of Swanny’s Guided Fishing. Click to ENTER

Mike B. called it the “wost conditions” he’d ever endured on a river. I put it right up there behind the famed “Hunt for Mr. Hogito” day on Oregon’s Elk River many moons ago. Big Worm said…well…he didn’t say a thing but it’s safe to say he’d rather been somewhere else…say in a hot tub with a couple French bikini models, for example.
