Re: Dead Fish at Don Pedro

I believe this new generation fisherman just have to practice better fish care. I agree. It is a matter of angler education. Years ago I worked for Mike Iljin's AC Castaic tournament trail, and we preached fish care. I also had a copy of the picture of how to mouth fizz a bass that I showed people,...

Middle River bridge

Does anyone know who built the bridge from Upper Jones to Woodword, and why? It seems like it is an expensive bridge to nowhere right now.

Re: WWBT Apex series

Thank you for your questions on WB. Enjoy. Ken, Is the schedule of the "non-mainstream" lakes posted somewhere? Not yet, the field doesn’t even know yet. The venues could be off limits to the field from the time it’s announced. TBD That would certainly provide a more level playing field.

Millions of people get 20% of the water, and agriculture gets 80%.

It really looks like the mounting attachment is much too small for the length of the unit. That long a transducer has a lot of leverage against it. Seems like they could supply a triangular bracket and some silicone, to reinforce the unit once it's installed and adjusted.
