Re: Delta Fishing?

At the rate we are losing fish, you best get out there and get a few. They should be moving shallow this week and the smaller fish should be showing themselves.

Seal clubbing looks to be our next sport.

Re: Is the ca delta about to bust open?

If the temps rise it'll improve the reaction bite. The fish are around, just tight lipped. The bite window is small and presentation is everything. If it's not really close you aren't getting bit. The spawn will proceed regardless. Clarity doesn't effect the fish, just the fisherman. That said I bo...

I use 16 lb fluro year round, 20 or 25 lb during the spring for casting reels on senko rods.

My GF Jill uses 8 lb Yozuri Hybrid line on her spinning tackle with a splitshot 5" senko and she does pretty well.

Re: Iovino Worms?

Been using them for 20+ years S-20 is favorite in 6" spade. Texas rig, dropshot or weightless for stained water. If you fish clear water lakes, a dart head works good with the S-111 small mouth killer color.
