    My pontoon needs to get wet! any other pontooners want to do a float next week? Still trying to get my first one on the swing. This has become a borderline obsession at this point. I've had some tugs and one good hook-up, but my first fish is still out there swimming around, gettin bigger by the day. I used to think I was a good fisherman, til I started swingin for steelhead...nothing like 10,000 fish-less casts to humble a man...

    FJH,

    Sorry to burst your bubble, but steelhead don't feed appreciably after entering freshwater on their spawning migration, not enough to grow noticeably, so your first steelhead isn't going to be any larger when you do land it unless it is still out in the ocean going to return to freshwater next year. I hope that isn't what you have in mind . . .

    Just trying to be helpful, and inject a little humor here and there. Can't win 'em all.
