    Default welcome to the BOC....

    Hey there welcome aboard....

    I have fished in the area a time or two from a boat? Have you got a boat or are you stuck to the shore?

    I think I saw a post on the American River .... on catfishing... was that you?

    When I did the Sac exploration trip in 96...I launched at Garcia Bend and traveled up and beyond the American River in my old Bayrunner Boat.

    I took note of areas that had folks on the bank fishing...

    here is a spot ... ramp and all....... I think that you just need to travel the bank road ... maybe on a bicycle or roller skates and check things out... LOL

    Sacramento River, West Sacramento, CA - Google Maps

    Even at Discovery park... there is shore fishing at the ramp...

    The local shops will give out information as well.....Freeport bait?

    awesome. thank you for the feedback. i'm going to try and go out tonight, hoping the weather doesn't put a damper on it. gonna be a little windy and lows in the high 40's. do you think that will matter?

    Default HOW ARE YOU SET UP?

    Might be nice to have a blanket to lay over the legs... LOL

    Do you have "bite indicators" or lights for you pole... helps with the visual part of watching and listening for the strikes....

    Might get some stripers to come in and go........ got to be close at hand.... Several of our buddies have been taken for "loss poles" by those pesky fish...LOL

    lol yeah i've only caught little stripers about 8-10 inchers. i've got bells but that probably wont hold up well in the wind. i'm thinking i might pick up some glow sticks for the tip
