Not a Skunk Lake Berryessa

First day of practice for the BBT Delta/Wine Region didn't pan out quite as planned but it was still a day on the water. Not all days can be home runs but its all about putting the pieces of the puzzle together.

Re: Shakey flaky?

I believe the difference between a texas and the shakey would be the weight welded to the hook. Any play in between the weight and hook on a texas rig would cause the worm even if floating to lay horizontally, if that makes sense.

While most of the delta is recovering from rain and looks like chocolate milk, time on the water finally paid of with a decent fish.

This is a link to the scale on TW, it comes with cull balls with a similar clip and number so that you can store the weights on the scale and correlate them with fish making culling that much easier.
