Fishing Report

I finally get a break in my work schedule and guess what, the rain is back! I'm also coming down with the flu that's going around. I just can't seem to catch a break. I did manage to get out fishing on the Delta and it didn't disappoint. The fish were initially a little tough to come by, but once we slowed down, we started to catch fish. This time on the Delta is especially fun because you can catch a little fish in one cast and possibly a giant the very next cast. We didn ...

Fishing Report

There's and old saying that goes "someone's always going to catch fish." This is especially true on the Delta. This past weekend seemed like the perfect day to get out fishing, I couldn't have asked for better fishing conditions. The fish on the other hand weren't cooperating, causing me to struggle to put a limit in the boat. Once at the boat ramp I could overhear other boaters that had similar struggles. Then of course I got home and looked at some of that day's tournament weights and realized that there were quite a few ...

Fishing Report

Something must give, how much longer before a fishing license is going to cost over a hundred dollars? My recent purchase of my annual fishing license cost me more than $60 this year. I did purchase a double rod stamp which added $14 to the cost. As much as I wanted to say no to the purchase of a double rod stamp, I knew that if I passed on it, there would be a time when I wished I would have purchased it. Curious, I did some research and found out that in 1980, a California resident could purchase an ...
