Re: NEW VIDEO “Bass Boat ALMOST Capsized During Tournament on the CA Delta | Swamped by MASSIVE Wake-Surf Boat Wave”

Agreed, point the boat into the oncoming waves and head to the back of the boat. Only took 1 time to figure that out. I think most people figure it out the same way the next time it happens . Retreat towards the back of the boat to avoid getting wet and , "Hey the big wave didn't come over the...

Getting out of the wind on the Delta

It seems like it's been pretty windy this year and it's been beating me up pretty good. If I'm launching in Franks Tract where are the areas that I should run to to get out of the wind which is usually blowing out of the West? Should I run down towards Mandeville and Mildred or into Sandmound or som...

Depending upon your definition .... I would disagree it is "always fishable" when blowing 25+


I'm with you. There may be a lot of fishable areas when it's blowing hard, but trying to get to those places isn't always fun or safe.

I think it has less to do with people talking and the videos and more to do with the hundreds of boats every single weekend tournaments that pound that river from Spring through Fall. I see boats crowded on the same spots week after week.
