There are still some good months ahead, while it gets expensive try to pick good days to go...anyways...speaking for myself, I realize there is a lot to know about tides and conditions that I have yet to learn. Guys like us could use a little LUCK, eh!? it happens if ya hang in there. Did you read that thread about "how long did you fish before you got your first one?"
Maybe you already got you first one, but you know what i'm sayin.

The answer to your dilema is worded in your post. Find a spot and fish it faithfully. Its the only way to narrow down your window of opportunity. Flipping here and there will not necessarily result in fish caught (my $.02). Find a spot you know fish inhabit, and hit it until it produces.
PS....The hayday at Hood should be hitting its apex in the months to come. Try hitting that handful of spots along the east bank just upriver from Hood. They have always produced for me between Feb. and April. There are also a lot of good spots between Walnut Grove and the Courtland Bridge.

My good buddy from romeo's baitshop called me earlier and said people are bashing them from Hood-clarksburg. So you should give it a try around those areas. He said some guys caught 4 in 2 days. I think the sturgeons are coming in thick right about now.

+1 :thumbsup:

The fact of the matter is no one really know where they're at. We as creature of habit will go back to a particular spot where we've caught fish in the past. After a period of time, we establish a number of spots where we've caught fish...thus "the honey holes" .

So unless a fellow sniffer wants to share their "honey hole", it's up the individual to log in time to find their own honey hole. Plain and simple.

The best source in getting a general area of where fish has been caught are the bait shops in that particular area.

Another source is to attend the free seminars that Fisherman's Warehouse offers where the speaker is a local Capt or a very knowledgeable fisherman on a particular specie fish.

Yet another source for those who are fortunate enough to fish on a charter, bring a hand held GPS then mark the location where fish has been caught by you or others on the boat.

Now as to what gear to use, how and when to set the hook, bait to use, etc, ... I'm confident that most everyone here will chime in on their preferences.

Good luck and tight lines.

Don;t know about that, but I haven't seen one caught or my friends and us have not caught any at all. three days straight with nothing.

Don't want to be buzz killington but that area is closed. When you leave the orchards and make that left to courtland, there's a giant sign there. This applies ALL the way to walnut grove and along Isleton road. I caught my biggest right before the courtland bridge..

There have always been signs, but there are spots that nonetheless are fished. Anywhere in Yolo county is a definite no-go. Parking is the big issue. I've been fishing that stretch of river from Hood to Isleton for years. You just need to know where you can and cant fish.
