Fishing Report

Fish attractants have been used in some form or another for many years. In the middle 1980s I can remember there being a big interest in fish attractants as several major tackle manufacturers added fish attractants to their product line. I can remember one specific brand that comes to mind "Bait mate," it was in a liquid form with a consistency that was similar to vegetable oil. One quick spray of this supposedly would create a feeding frenzy. Every major fishing show started to endorse the use of fish attractants and anglers followed accordingly. To add a little confusion manufacturers ...

Fishing Report

Labor Day weekend is an exciting time for most anglers. Unfortunately nearly 20 percent of all boating accidents in California occur on holidays. Surprisingly 80 percent of all boating fatality victims would have survived if they had been wearing a life jacket. Once an accident occurs, it is often too difficult, and usually too late, to don a life jacket. Imagine trying to put a seatbelt on while in the middle of a crash! Once you're ejected from the boat there's no guarantee that you will be conscious when your body comes to rest in the water. Recently ...

Almost Three In A Row In Sonoma

Will Power came into the GoPro IZOD Indy Car Grand Prix of Sonoma with a chance to make it three in a row. He had the fastest car during nearly every test and practice session over the weekend. He then qualified on the pole. Power led the first 17 laps until the first cycle of pit stops, at which time his Penske teammate (Ryan Briscoe) took the lead. He then led laps 21-40 before the second set of pit stops, where Briscoe would take over. When Power regained the lead on lap 44, it looked like a third consecutive win ...

Fishing Report

Last week I was able to get out for a few days of fishing on the Delta. The bite wasn't the best but we did manage to catch our limits. As far as the weather, it was absolutely amazing. I was also able to fish Lake Pardee, we didn't get a single bite but once again the weather was great. What I did find humbling about my trip to Pardee was that as we were heading back towards the launch ramp, I counted several people walking up to their cars with limits of trout on their stringers. Then ...

Fishing Report

Keeping it simple often is the key ingredient to an angler's success out on the water. Of all my boxes and boxes of tackle I still find myself going back to my old faithful lures when the latest and greatest stuff just isn't working. Any top pro will tell you that he or she may use a variety of different techniques but owes a lot of their success to one or two techniques or baits. They've mastered that bait and its presentation therefore keeping it simple. Too much time is wasted trying out different lures. A co ...

Fishing Report

I was looking through some of my tackle the other day and it was sad to see once popular baits that were no longer being used. Like most hobbies there's always something better that comes out that you just have to have. For a while there I was obsessed with having the latest and greatest until I fished with a guy called Bill. Bill was in his 60's and I heard from a friend that he was a pretty good bass fisherman. I ended up getting to know Bill and eventually was able to go fishing with him ...

I'm not sure the exact reason but this is the time of year when I see the most arrests being made for poaching on the water. The following information was taken from the California Department of Fish and Game website: "If you witness a poaching or polluting incident or any fish and wildlife violation, or have information about such a violation, immediately dial the toll free CalTIP number: 1 (888) DFG-CALTIP 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Fishing Report

I can't remember how many times over the past year that I've emphasized being prepared for the unexpected while out fishing. The unexpected happened to me a few years ago while out on the delta. Fishing out of a relative's fairly new boat we were surprised to hear the ever so dreaded "click, click" sound when attempting to start his boat at the end of the day. His batteries had died and we were officially stranded! Being a new boat as well as a new boat operator his only useful device on board was his cell phone ...
