    Hi Readers, Looks like we are right in the middle of the summertime fishing season. It has been a great season so far for us. We've enjoyed adding Bobby Barrack's Delta Bass Scoop to the regular lineup and were excited to bring you coverage with several of the popular events including the Yamamoto Big Bass Challenge and the Coors Light Invitational by Anglers Press, the FLW Delta Western Division as well as the California Open with WON Bass. We are looking forward to more to come with the Snag Proof Open and BassFest in August and the U.S. Open in September. In the meantime, we are excited about the 2015 ICAST event in a couple of weeks. Bobby Barrack will be attending the event for WesternBass and will be ready to show you many of the new products that will be available. We've recently added a new section to the classifieds. It is available for site users to list waterfront / lake type properties and tournament lodging. As with all the other classified forums, there is no charge for listing or looking. Remember, we have a detailed section with many resources including videos, tide tables etc. available to users in the DELTA section of the site and many resources available in the INTERACTIVE tab. Watch the forums for upcoming information. There is much more to come. Good fishing! Wayne
