    I forgot to mention, I will be camping. I do not own a boat.
    Hey Bryan, wish you could make this one as well. I bet you know all the good spots. I remeber you telling me about your fishing trips with your dad( too cool) I also remeber seeing some pictures of you aand your dad. I will make sure to take plenty of pictures.
    Hey David sure glad you are going. Hopefully I can catch some fresh mackeral. If I can will try to take a trip to Catalina Island and catch some bonito. You got first dibs on the the bonito.

    I have a 12 person 3 bedroom Tent. It is like 6"8 in the center. It is a sweet setup. I will bring it for extra guys to crash in. Plus I will have the back of my pickup as I have a shell on it. I wonder how the weather will be that time of year - you know, weather permitting with the tent camping and all.

    didn't copy so well but you'll get the Idea, and i would say the chance of rain is very very low

    think the water temp should be low to mid 70's

    darn temp this weekend says 4 days of mid 80's and low's in the mid 50's
    emm thinken mite have to head off to the river.

    Man Brandt hows its all going sure, would be cool if ya can make it. man dude thats a long drive nearing 800miles each way

    keith good to hear from ya. your boat will do good out there, the current runs about 5mph out in the middle of the river along the banks you can find slower moving water you can also find some eddies, the river runs about around 7' w/ drop offs to 10 to 15 ft, there also sand bars that have 5 ft or so drops on the back side and alot of submirged trees to be found, On the subject of shad I know nothing about, but their around, maybe Vulture knows about them he's got a place down by palo verda he may get them out of lake ciboila, he's signed up on the boc but havn't herd from in here he's on fnn maybe we need to pick his brain on that, i know he's trying to get info on sabiki rigs in there so he must know were there at. you can use a cast net to get them just not any bigger then 3' i think. I have been using gold fish for bait and Im going to try and get some big goldfish reserve for us

    hey ther Deltalover i,ll be putting you down hope to meet up with ya down there them flats will be waiting on ya

    bluehunter this is starting to look good think im going to get anouther spot for us. man I tell ya I,m ready for some warmer weather to get them cats going going

    Hey Brandt, how are you doing buddy? Glad to hear you can make it. Have you heard from Joe? I tried calling him but I have the wrong number.
    Dale by when do you need the money for space reservations?

    I fish that area alot, except last year only twice . Talipa or bluegill are much better bait then gold fish!! Lots of talipa in the canals there.
