hey everyone,
* went fishing last weekend with kathy and my son jon. since the black point launch is closed we had to go out of hudeman slough to sonoma creek then out to the bay. we fished the outgoing and it was pretty slow. jon caught a 38" lepoard , then a couple rays. only had a few other dink bites. don't even want to fish the incoming because the fishing is so slow but we can't make it in until the tide comes in half way. so we sat there. a few more dink bites in the next 2 hours . now it's last cast. jon gets a very lite sturgeon bite and is on his rod in an instant , sets the hook and the rod stops and the line starts to leave. he's loosing so much line he bears down on the reel with his thumb until it burns . of course he doesn't have a full spool so i yank the hook . about this time he muscles the fish and turns him and has to reel like mad to catch up to him . 'bout 10 minutes later he has the fish to the boat for the third time and i reach over and drag him in . a beautiful fat 64" male . after two years of sturgeon fishing he has his first keeper . he was so happy he laid down on the floor of the boat and hugged his fish . thought i was going to have to give them a minute alone . on the way in we got stuck in the mud twice . hard to believe the boat brought us in in one foot of water for 300 yards . enjoy the pics.

hey foggy,
i didn't stop at black point . driving by it looked like they are rebuilding the whole thing . from what i understand it was supposed to be already done . i'm going to give joel and deb a call at the bait shop to see when it's going to be done .

Great report RR. Man you seem to pull alot of fish out of the sonoma creek area. Are you fishing the channel? Congrats on the awesome fish!

Foggy: yeah its real shallow in the area of San Pablo Bay and Sonoma creek. There is a channel in there. Its ver narrow you have to spot it with your finder. Blackpoint launch is closed for repairs. Hopefully it will be done soon.
