    Got a chance to go fishing this weekend with bert and his family! It was a beautiful day and nice to get some sunshine! We didnt get a lot of fish and they wernt big, but after my last few trips, this was action! All fish were caught on the change of both tides. Clams, worms and liver were all good during "the bite". (I tried different dip baits with no luck). The fishing sure is different this time of year! While you can occasionally hookup, it's not like the summer, when the fish are aggressive. All the bites were really subtle and if you wern't looking, you miss it. There is still alot of hyacynth in the river, but not as bad as it was and I predict it will be soon gone (nice)! I got a call from a friend at "Jolly's Baitshop" while we were fishing. I was told that two customers walked in with keeper sturgeon, caught on ghost shrimp, in the "tiki lagoon" area! I may be going out tomorrow for them! I think this is the last chance to keep them for the year! Anyway, it was a great day and I got to fish with some real nice folks and already got plans for next weekend fishing at clifton court forebay with the same great people! Pretty cool! We got to get this gear loosened up for them flatheads in april!

    Hey Phil,

    I was very glad to finally meet you after talking on the phone with you many time, and I was glad to get to "wet-a-line" with you and I look forward to doing so many times in the years to come. I'm sure that I we will have some good times fishing together because "it's on now!!!!!"
    :thumbsup:

    I know that we are going to have a great time down at the Gathering in April. (Can't Wait) :0a23:

    When I got home on Sat.(2/25/06), I made my reservations in Tracy for next Friday (3/3/06), so "it's on again buddy"!!!!

    So I'll see you next week bro.

    Take it easy,
    Bert:cool:

    So far, weather does not look good! It's suppose to gust 60 and there are flood warnings and everything else! We ought to go to "sutter creek" and catch some of those cats out of the parking lot:) Plus, there are no snags, LOL. Anyway, the first chance we get, we will checkout "cliftoncourt forebay"! I would bet you, that there is a row of cars out there right now. "I am tempted to go check it out this morning, in the calm before the storm". If the stripers are there, it will be hard to find a place to park.

He is the guy that caught all the striper with me last year when I was fishing in my raft. Anyway, any of you local guys caught anything to brag about yet? Not me....I went out sturgeon fishing the other day, but I got skunked! So, what's the word on a gathering? anything in the works yet? I am looking forward to getting out there this year and gittin" some kittys!!
    well, I'll try to post more often, before you guys start forgetting about me!

    LOL!!!!! You funny:0a20: We are in the works for the Mendota gathering. Riverbud (Dale) is putting together a nice one on the Colorado in April. The black bass and crappie was on a frenzy over the weekend at the slough. We need to fish together (here or there). Let me know.
