    Re: Ice House Limit

    Thanks for the report. Sounds like just short of a perfect day. Those lakes really turn on this time of the year. Glad you got some fish for dinner, and some tranquil peace for the soul. ...
  3. Re: Need advice on how to get into the trolling game...

    Only way to know how long a battery will last is to give it a try. A lot has to do with the motor and battery. If youíve got the room, a second battery is the way to go.

    As for electric...
  4. Re: Sturgeon-Vessel Interactions Resulting in Mortality in the SF Bay

    Have never seen it 30+ years fishing for them, more up the Sacramento River than in the bay. I have no doubt it occurs but donít believe itís significant to the overall population density.

    Re: Top Water bite

    You're a good man, and will be rewarded for doing a good thing. I've had the same situation and dilemma. Not even a topwater 20#er blowup next to the boat can replace the humble pride of knowing...
  6. Re: Need advice on how to get into the trolling game...

    My preference is Abu Garcia 5500, an Uglystik 7í ultra lite rod and 10# Maxima ultra green. Very dependable reels, almost unbreakable rod. The reason for the 10# line is itís less prone to twisting...
  7. Re: Need advice on how to get into the trolling game...

    Ditto on the trolling plate. Money-wise a trolling plate and a couple used manual downriggers are the best bang you can get. Not much you can’t do with that setup. Bungee the steering wheel...

    Re: Star Bend report?

    Congrats, thatís a happy boy. Never realized Davis had browns in it. Sure is satisfying when a plan comes together. Well done dad.
  13. Re: Does Anyone Still "Taiil" Fish Instead of Netting?

    Tough to do out of a boat. Not saying it can't be done, but leaning far enough over to get to the tail in deep water makes it a whole different ball game than sliding them on the gravel bar or...

    Not saying I was stalking Bass Jack, but his report last week sparked a fire to get in some river time with the kids.

    Looks pretty close. One thing is it differentiate license holders from total licenses and tags. Looks like about 50% more licenses, tags and stamps than individual. Could be reading it wrong too....

    No argument here. Facts are facts. Opinion are opinions. Not my place to tell someone what to think. I feel a lot more needs to be done and fear the slippery slope too.

    Re: Fish Finder question - Bati Balls

    I would read those marks as bait, and your downriggers in the second one. Almanor gets some dense grass beds in it which can show similar to that, but I wouldn't expect them to extend 8-10' off the...

    It does help. A river has a natural flow of rock, gravel and sand that travels down stream called bedload. It naturally segregates itself by flow condition with larger heavier rock settling out...
