Mid-June Delta Fishing Video and Report

Had a good bite last week on the bladed jig. Lots of 3 to 4 pound bass, plus one that almost went 8 pounds. I was fishing ledges where the shallow 2-3 foot flat drops off into 8 to 12 feet of water. Top-water action was decent for smaller keeper fish under 3 pounds. Tons of stripers (15 to 19 inch r...

Upgrading Trolling Motor--Fortrex to Ghost (need advice)

I need a little help. I am upgrading my trolling motor from a Fortrex to a Ghost. Will the pedal tray used for the Fortrex be big enough for the Ghost's pedal. Or do I need a new tray?

I have seen them every year in Whites for the last 3 or 4 years. I am sure they end up lost and swim around the various sloughs until they turn into zombie-fish and die off. Part of the cycle of Mother Nature I guess.

Thank you Mark, Marc, Ken, and Bass4Money. Ken, it was a chatterbait in a bluegill pattern, no chartreuse on the tail. Bass4Money, thank you...I had no idea how big it was either until it striped some line at the boat. It bit and acted like a typical 2 pounder at first. Ya never know I guess!
