Smile Hello all! New member

Hello all - I have been lurking on the excursion site for the past few months since I started my quest for an excursion. I am originally from Klamath Falls and went to college in Corvallis. Spent a couple of years in the midwest and then returned back to Oregon. I seem to have always been around Ford's with my 1st one being a '69 Bronco! My wife and I now live in Banks with our 5 kids. I finally found a 2001 Excursion Limited on craigslist. The photo below is the maiden voyage to the lower Columbia river for crabbing. Got 48 crabs in just over an hour. So any fellow fishers out there in the Banks / Hillsboro area let me know!!

The Excursion has 125,xxx miles 7.3 diesel and pretty much stock. Did the 1st mods this past week. Replaced the shocks with Bilsteins, added an overhead DVD and replaced stock radio with pioneer with bluetooth. Had the ball joints replaced soon after I got her home.

Thanks for allowing me to join the Oregon chapter! It is a great site and look forward to reading and hopefully contributing a little BullS*** as well!

Tim aka FishnDaddy

Welcome to the Oregon Chapter.
I'm a fellow fisher just not in the Hillsboro/Banks area. I.m over on the coast in Seaside did live in Banks a few years a long time ago.
What do you fish for besides crab. Me if it swims it's far game.

Welcome to the Oregon Chapter, my mom and dad live in Forest Grove. My Great Grandmothers family were long time residents of Banks, many are buried in the Banks Cemetery.

Welcome! Great to have another fisherman!........I fish the high lakes, spring and summer, then with any luck I fish the coastal rivers for salmon in the fall.
I have not been on the Columbia since I down sized to a 15ft boat, got tired of only being able to pull the big hog with a F-250. Now with the smaller boat I can tow with the Ranger and save gas$$
15ft is a little to small to mix it up on the Columbia.

I have only been on the Columbia River once, too big for a 15' wood drift boot.

Welcome!

Me and my dad are looking forward to Halibut this summer as well. Then fall chinook in the yaquina.
Maybe I'll be able to top my 47 pound chinook I caught about 12 years ago. lol
