Re: CDTT Day 1 TOC results

The D has been fishing small and tough lately.

I was EXTREMELY fortune the other day to land my new PB and crush my previous by almost 2lbs. That said, i only landed 8 fish in 6 hours of hard fishing in good areas and favorable tide.

Re: Comanche

I fished it today and I usually do well there... I got my ### kicked today. I couldn't find them ANYWHERE. Up river, main lake, island tops, bushes. I wasnt even graphing them.... It was the worst day I have ever had there. I have no clue where they went.

I hope you did better.

Re: What line do you use for crankbaits?

I've cranked on the D for years with straight 30lb braid with very good results.

On lakes I do use a floro leader.

All my cranking rods are glass or CB composite rods so they have the flex built in. It's what has proven consistent for me.

Another good video. I punch a lot and always enjoy watching other guys' approach to it and hooksets.

The punch bit can be good if you find the right area at the right tide .

Re: CA DELTA FISHING (Lost and Confused Begginers)

All of what they said....

If you want to get bit flip a weightless senko in the trough between the weeds and rocks on an outgoing tide. You may not get big fish this time of year but you will get bit which will give you an idea of the timing the use for a feed window.

Give it a week, it'll get better. Most bigger fish go nocturnal this time of year. However, you will still run into quality fish around the right grass with current, docks or mats with access to deep water.
