Re: Dead Fish at Don Pedro

This is something I’ve been bitching about for a while now. There’s too many wanna be pros out there. Catching fish in 30 to 60 feet of water or more and keeping them in their life well for pictures at the end of the day. No reason to do this other than to say look what I got! As for the tournaments...

Re: Exciting enhancements on tap for 2021 FPT season

I see that FPT is scheduled to have a tournament on New Melones 2/13/21. Call me crazy, but I thought they weren’t giving any permits out there this year. Maybe I’m wrong. Anyone know for sure?

Electronics installation OK guys, I just ordered a Garmin unit with pan optics. I realize the installation is going to be over my head. I’m looking for someone to install that knows what they’re doing. I’m in Livermore but will travel a bit. Thank you.

You asked for feedback or comments so I would suggest you not bounce these fish onto the carpet. Especially in the summer. People don’t understand the damage they do to the slime coat.

Re: New Bass Trail up North?

Seriously! Most of these Orgs. have never had a full field in their existence. Seems like every lake, every weekend, has 1 or more tournaments on it. Up north anyway. It would be nice to see fewer numbers of tournaments but with much larger fields. Just my two cents.
