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. I prefer the freezing rain since it bounces off. Either way it was well worth it to get up close and personal with this bruiser.”
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.
