Fishing Report

I've been truck shopping lately. My current truck is 14 years old and has been a very good truck to me. I can remember my first time test driving it at the dealership. It was so much more of a truck than I thought I needed at the time. Since then, my son is now a teenager, my daughter was born, we purchased a travel trailer, and the need for a bigger truck seemed to increase every time I add miles to my current truck. It's pretty exciting and at the same time somewhat sobering. New trucks are ...

Fishing Report

Recently while fishing New Melones Lake all intentions were to go after the kokanee that were supposed to be biting. What ended up happening was that we came across a school of crappie that seemed to bite every time we trolled past them. The decision I had to make was to either abandon the area in pursuit of kokanee or stay there and change tactics to target crappie. I decided the latter for a variety of reasons but none more than the opportunity to catch crappie. I've caught them before but never in the numbers and sizes of the ...

Fishing Report

It seems like every year it's becoming harder and harder to be without a Wi-Fi signal while out camping. It's a reminder to me of just how much technology is becoming part of my life. Currently I'm out camping and the Wi-Fi signal is intermittent. My evening walks with my son this week have turned into finding the best place to make a phone call or respond to text messages. I even caught myself today fishing in an area a lot longer than I should have only because it had a great Wi-Fi signal. As much as ...
