An old timer saying hello

This is Rob T, I lived in Bay Area for years trying to learn to fish the Delta and Clear Lake and wanted to say hello to the remaining old guys and mention I'm still fishing, but mostly in San Diego Salt water stuff. Used to fish with my good friend Bill Durbin in Tracy Oasis tourneys Terry Flowers ...

Re: RIP Lewis Andy "Cooch" Cuccia

It's been a long time for me on the forum. Used to post in the 90s about the Delta and followed Cooch's advise. Still love his article about the Viper boats tournament years ago! Sad to hear of this loss to the community. This, along with the passing of my bass partner Bill Durbin earlier has left m...

Re: How's that workin' for ya Sarah?

Hmm, I kinda think personal responsibility starts BEFORE the situation gets to a dead bunny. Leastways that's what I was taught. What happens after the bunny dies is owning up to the consequences of your initial lack of personal responsibility. On another earlier note, I believe in hard facts, not l...

Question for tourney bed fishing??

Cool stuff! But it makes me wonder: Would it be fair if a team in a tournament used a camera to find deep bed fish and/or bed fish in suboptimal conditions and used the camera to find and monitor the critters for when to set the hook?

Just wondering if I need to buy one of these gadgets!

Nope - you should all use 90 hp motors...

I've been fishing Clearlake and the Delta out of a 90 hp tracker for several years - caught plenty of fish-cashed some checks too. Then again, I just got an Allison XB2002 with a Merc Racing 200/sportmaster/Mazco setup. Should be worth a few extra MPH. C-YA. HAR! Good luck, be careful, and God Bless...

Comments on bassboat gas mileage

Got a new used fiberglass bass boat (first glass boat). Wanted one that my old 6 cyl mitsubishi could tow over the hill from Capitola to the Delta and Clearlake, and that would also get decent gas mileage on the water, so bought an Allison XB2002, 1994 with a Merc. 200XS optimax with modified sportm...

I agree, the livewell argument doesn't hold water!

HAR! But seriously folks, the livewell/aerator systems, along with the catch and release additives one can use now versus years back when we had 7 fish limits are superior overall today in most modern boats.

Good luck,

That others have alluded to is the 5 bass limit for any team that many orgs now use. I think this low of a limit brings too much of a luck factor into the game, as well as allowing for the potential for "funny business" from solo anglers that others have hinted at, altho I must say that I've NEVER y...
