Gary, I think people are scared to party with you!! :-X How about a mini fest around Brannon? Do another striper/sturgeon fest?

No big night gathering/buffet, we will all be fishing but maybe a floatilla or two and lots of drinking on the water ::)??

Gary, where would you recommend that we launch to get to this area easily; where our rigs will be safe, etc.? When I took you fishing, you said that you would go with me anytime, and said that if I wanted to get into some really good sturgeon fishing that you would take me out to Hood in Feb or March. Is this that time? I'd just as soon go with a "PRO" as by myself.

Any place for my 21 ft. boat? Yours is about as big as mine, right? Where can I launch from? I might be in, will have to check the old ladys plan book.

Wish I could go Stomper is the man when it comes to sturgeon. I keep the picture of the first one I ever caught with you on my desk. ;) might just have to see what I can do for that saturday.

Hey SS, what kind of bait do you suggest we pick up?
Ghost, grass, piles, sardines( for any stripers that might be around)?
Or yes to all the above?

STURGEONSTOMPER
03-10-2008, 09:59 AM

Burt, yes to all the above ;)

Doctor_Dan
03-10-2008, 12:01 PM
OK, Gary;
The way I understand it, is that we launch at Garcia Bend Sat morning, and meet up down by Hood? I've never fished that area, so I'll need some guidance. Is this supposed to be an overnighter? How secure is the launch site for leaving our rigs there overnight? What kind of bait do you reccommend that we bring? Sorry for all of the questions, but this will be a new experience for me. I don't want to do it alone, but if I can get my friend Travis to come along, I'll be there.

Not sure yet as to were Ill be fishing but south of Garcia is for sure. Dan all the reg baits are good. Your rig should be fine ;) Ill be out sometime Friday till sundays weigh in. In order to be in the derby you need to sign up at Freeport bait before friday.

Doctor_Dan
03-10-2008, 03:10 PM
WHAT DERBY?? I can't go sign up at Freeport Bait before Friday: We are going to be TB testing ~ 4,000 cows between now and then. I thought that this was just a "mini-fest"?

03-10-2008, 06:59 PM
Gary, I believe I will be there 8-). I probably will put in up at Discovery in town because I don't think Garcia will handle my 33' trailer :'(. I'm thinking I will be there Saturday early morning but just for the day. I need to get & use this 2 rod stamp ;). I have not been out fishing since that log got in my way in early Jan :(.

STURGEONSTOMPER
03-11-2008, 08:26 AM
Ok Burt, sounds good

Listen, if you guys wanna do the derby. Call Johny and tell him you want a ticket. He will hold it for you. Tell him Stomper said so ;) Hell do it ;)

STURGEONSTOMPER

Ok, lets try this. You guys wanna do the derby. Let me know, Ill get your ticket. You pay me when you get there. The tickets need to be in Friday am. Ill do that for yea, but if you flake, dont let me catch yea on the river >:(

SS,
Talked my buddy into an overnighter, all set to go; but now we have a 6,000 cow dairy to test Saturday, so obviously I'm not going to make it. These damn non-fisherman who are in charge of the taskforce have NO RESPECT!! (as Rodney Dangerfish would say). I'd certainly rather be on the river getting kicked by a sturgeon than being on a dairy being kicked by cows.
I hope that you guys have a great time.

As of right now it looks like I'm headed out on the "Beast" by myself for Saturday only. So if someone wants to meet me at the dock, PM me & maybe we can hook up together. I have some ghost shrimp & pile worms on board already so I think all we need is some sardines for them stripers. let me know.
