Re: Accessing Little Franks?

Maybe you're thinking of a different place. It would be poor judgement to run through any openings around Little Frank's. Don't care if someone screws up their boat. It's the fact that those openings have blind spots and people fish those openings. It's also common to see small boats anchored in tho...

There's no good reason for anyone to be on pad in Little Frank's. If you need to go to the other side just go around because it's "little". I've seen plenty of people high center their rig on what looks like an opening there. Also, people fish those openings so the last thing anyone should...

I throw a lot of medium divers both on the Delta and Clear Lake.

I generally do this with rods that have a more moderate taper. This would also be my preferred ...
