Re: Delta water clearity

I had one of my best days ever on the delta Monday. I didn't catch more then a dozen or so fish but I caught a 9.5#, 7#, and a 6.5# plus a couple 3's. No bed fish. My fish were clean so I doubt if many fish have even tried to spawn yet.

You can probably do that trip on $1500 or so. Sleep in a tent and make your lunch. It will be so much more rewarding in the end if you do it all on your own. You don't need more tackle or amenities. Go down there and kick there butt doing what you guys do. Keep it simple and it will happen.
