Fishing Report

When I think about fishing in October, I think about great weather, great fishing, and the opening of duck hunting season. Currently on the Delta, the duck hunters are in full force, racing around the Delta setting up all their blinds for the hunting season.

There are a few though, that seem to have permanent residence near or around a few of my favorite fishing areas. I'm surprised that we aren't on a first name basis. Years ago when I was tournament ...

Fishing Report

Navigating the Delta can be a little intimidating for someone who's not familiar with where they're going. I remember my first couple of years fishing the Delta, it was a little intimidating. My boat at the time fit in the bed of my truck, so I usually didn't travel out of sight of the launch ramp. That all changed once I purchased my first full sized bass boat. Still unsure of where I was going, a close friend encouraged me to purchase a hand-held GPS. Back then GPS's were pricey, so I was a little hesitant ...
