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 ...

Fishing Report

I don't know too many anglers that aren't hoarders. I'm not any different, although I do try to donate a few items every once in a while, especially when I come across a young angler who's "hooked" as they say! A few days ago, while going through some of my old tackle, I ended up spending more time looking through my tackle than actually getting what I needed. I got stuck reminiscing I guess. For a lot of the baits that I no longer use there's a story to be told. Like the time I ...
