View Full Version : Rio Vista 2-28

03-01-2011, 06:39 AM
Seon and I hooked up again in our quest for another sturgeon. Picked up some bait at Rio Vista bait, and was on the water by 0800. Water was F A C, but stained with about 1 foot visibility. Went to our favorite “spot”. (Got there just as the current started coming in) water temp about 48-49 degrees. Long story short, we missed some good pull down, hooked up some stripers. Seon took one home for the smoker.
Nice and fat (the fish LOL)
All in all, another great day on the water. Thanks again for the ride Seon. Better fishing is just around the corner.

Sure looks like a great day out on the water. What bait was working for you guys today?

We used grass, ghost, and shad. I think the bite was equal on all three.

"A" for Effort White Cap. Good company and good times make a great day. A Sturgeon might make it better, maybe next time.

Stripers just can't stay away from you guys. Just wondering approximately how many hours you've put in trying to get that next keeper sturgeon? Getting close to earning that virtual 100-Hour tee-shirt?

Hey Al - I notice you and Seon alway display an extended "Boga-type" gripper in your pics - I've been trying to locate one, and can't seem to find any with that extended arm - Who makes it and where can I find one?

Hey Al - .. an extended "Boga-type" gripper in..
...Who makes it and where can I find one?

It's a Berkley Lip Grip 28" that I bought a couple of years ago. I just did a google and came up with this: Amazon.com: Berkley 28" Big Game Lip Grip: Sports & Outdoors (http://www.amazon.com/Berkley-Big-Game-Lip-Grip/dp/B000E7UJUU)

Hard to believe they're sell it for almost 1/3 the cost of when I bought mine. So I'd suggest before buying, call the store to confirm it's the 28" long.
