Fishing Report

Several years ago during the month of January, I was out competing in a bass tournament on Lake Camanche. The weather was very similar to what it is now, so I was prepared for rain. The morning started out cold and damp as expected. There wasn't any rain though, which made it nice. Just as the sun was coming up, over one of the mountains, an obvious storm cloud was coming my way. Within minutes my partner and I were fishing in the middle of one the most beautiful storms that I can ever remember. As strange as it ...

Fishing Report

Like every New Year, for the past 16 years, I was in Arizona visiting the in-laws. Unlike the past 16 years it was colder than it has ever been over there. Thinking that I'd be smart and bring only one sweater, I definitely should have checked the weather report before leaving. The fishing out there is so much more different than on the Delta. Because of the intense heat, most of their fishing is done through the night. Locals primarily fish the Colorado River which is like our Delta in many ways. Unlike the Delta, the Colorado River doesn ...
