Bullards Bar Map

Hi folks,

Is anyone producing a decent topographic map for Bullards Bar Reservoir? I have found some one line. Call me old school, but I would like to have a nice map I can lay out on a table and study.

Before Western Bass, Cooch was a Charter Member, if you will, of NCBF, Northern California Bass Fishing, that evolved into Westernbass.com. It was through NCBF that i got to know Andy. I will always be thankful for that. It's been a good run, wish it was longer. I already miss him.

Re: Its called a Bassboat !!

I think live well capacity, in terms of number of fish, is dependent on the time of year, temperature of water and how long you plan to have the fish in there. So, it depends. I have seen live well capacity expressed in terms of water capacity and the number and flow of the pumps supporting it. Pat
