    Thanks for video !

    Rod has some flex, but we knew it was a big keeper (big for us Californians) when the rod bends over. Why I jumped out of my chair and he was right on it.

    Loved the strike!

    In fishing, I throw myself away and find myself again and again.

    Smile Caught A 25'' From The Surf With A Jumbo Live Minnow

    Went out on Saturday with a friend to the Sacramento Deep Water Channel, targeting stripers, even though many are starting to go for Sturgeon and people are going to the Barge for Salmon. Saw a sea lion catch a huge salmon there a couple of hours later.

    We brought tons of bait - the usual sardines, pile worms, a couple of mudsuckers and live jumbo minnows. After 3 hours of waiting, we finally had a hit on the live jumbo minnow! After a quick minute, we brought it in and measured it out to almost 26 inches.

    Here's the video for your enjoyment :)
