    WHO GIVES A S@#!

    In July, Japanese fisherman Manabu Kurita caught a 22.4lb largemouth bass at Lake Biwa, Japan's largest lake. It took six months to prove to be legit. It ties the record held by George Perry who caught his 22.4lb record bass at Montgomery Lake in Georgia. Like I said before, I don't really give a s@#!, just FYI. That is a big fish though. The largest bass caught in the Central Valley is 19lbs 3oz caught at Lake Success by Porterville.......still who gives a s@#!....just FYI. That's it.....I'm out.

    lol. I am actually going on a few bass trips soon I promised some guys I would leave the cat gear at home. LOL. They challenged me so you know I am all up for challenges. It should be fun though I remember when I was a child I wanted to be like Roland Martin, Jimmy Houston, and Orlando Wilson. They were my idols of fishing when I was a kid.

    BTW I been hearing that bass fishing is growing in Japan. Also they are really good at making tackle now targeting bass so it is no surprise that they are going after it in Japan as well.

    Bill Dance was good too. I like his shows he also went after catfish as well and his follies was also good he use to fall in the water, accidently hook himself and all kinds of stuff.

    Catfishing is the thing though but I am venturing out more and doing some more stuff besides catfishing soon. I kinda been there and done that with blues, channels, and flats so its new challenges ahead now. Saltwater and trout is making a come back with me. The battles in the salt is back breaking especially when it comes to yellowtail, wsb, and tuna. Will not quit catfishing never, just want to get some other fish under my wing. LOL. California has it all when it comes to that.

    Tuna are a blast. I use to go on overnighters, two days, and 3 day trips. The most I did was a 10 day. The trips are rather expensive but well worth it and fun.

    Yellowtail are the best fighting fish I ever encountered. You can catch those on local island trips and overnight tuna trips as well.

    Biggest tuna I caught was about an 80 pounder on a ten day trip - however there was some to 150 pounds caught on that trip. However there are some trips people get them to 300 pounds. Those are the 14 or more day trips or you can fly down to Mexico and go out of those area.

    My friend catmando although he is an advid catfisherman also fishes for halibut, sailfish, makos, tuna, yellowtail, and trout, etc. We both like to target these other species it keeps things interesting in the hunt for getting pbs in them all.

    I am thinking about some of the calico bass tournaments locally in the bay. Salt water always been a passion of mines and so cal has a wide variety to offer. Will likely do the halibut derby this spring.
