    Re: Final season tally

    Really slow for me. One fish per trip average. Had a few multi-fish trips, but also several skunks. Worst season for me since the closure.

    Re: Chain Island 12/8/2019

    I commented to my buddy about the lack of rolling sturgeon. We didn't see any.

    Forgot to mention in my original post - the water temperature was 53 degrees.

    Re: Sacramento Area 9/25/2019

    I went back out yesterday 6 am until noon. No hits, I'd say there was about a half a fish per boat, mostly 6-8 pounders. I personally saw three caught at about 10 am when a school came through.

    Re: Thoughts on Flasher in front of Silvertron?

    They troll the cone type flashers right at the spreader in front of spinners.
