Got to dixon at 6am, started fishing the railed pier for cats and bass. Caught 2 small cats (released). Then the bite died :sad2: So we decided to rent a row boat $17. We get down to the boat dock and the guy says we can take a motor boat cause we are 2 outta the 3 people total fishing. So free upgrade lol. (motorboats are $35) We head out to our spot and get 4 poles in the water. At this point it's 8am, and the sun is poking through the clouds hard. I go to bust out the sunscreen and my rod goes bendo. I get that fish in the boat, then Jeremy's rod goes bendo, by the time that fish is landed i am already reeling in another. This proceeds to happen for the next 3 hours straight. Btw i did get to put my sunscreen on, but everytime i started to i would hook up. Needless to say i wasted a bunch of sunscreen cause it got all over my rod and reel lol. Half way through our 3 hour slam fest, the only other guy on the lake rolls up and starts asking us questions. He can't figure out what he is doing wrong. He even asks for a couple fish cause he can't catch any. We gave him a couple stockers. Then i told him how to rig his line and convinced him that the live nightcrawler was gonna be better then the mushy anchovies he was trying to use. I even told him to anchor near us and cast where we were casting. Guess what? He caught a fish! He was all kinds of excited. I don't know what he was doing after that, cause he never cast in the same spot again, and never caught anymore fish, but whatever. In the end we caught over 30 cats, all 1-6lb, mostly stocked fish. We kept 2 that were guthooked, the rest got sent back to the deep to get fatter. Small cats or not a fish every 5 min for 3 hours was a blast. We literally only stopped fishing cause we ran outta mackerel, and we brought a one gallon freezer bag full. I also brought half a block of velveeta and we caught a few on that too. Doesn't like staying on a cricle hook though. I know trebles would be better for the cheese but i wanted to release everything i caught and these fish inhale treble hooks. The cheese was left over back up bait so we just burned through it. I am stopping myself now so i don't ramble on to death.
