    The bigger the better. 1 oz, silver or craw patterns work best in the murky waters of Monty and Suisun. Change out the hooks to 2x strength minimum. Even the shakers out there bend hooks. It's been...

    Re: Stripers MIA!!

    The thing about this fishing game is when you have a great day it makes you want to get out there again to have another great day. And when you get skunked, it makes you want to go right back out and...

    Re: Stripers MIA!!

    I was out running around in mid October and must have covered 45 miles that day for 1 18" striper. Historically, that has always been the best time for me, but I did notice it was unseasonably warm...

    Re: Crabbing 2019

    I will most likely avoid opening day, but I will definitely be out there, pot poachers be damned. Last year they found most of my pots but I still managed to hit my limits. I will also be dropping a...

    Re: deep diving Yozuri help

    When I am trolling it's usually for salmon, but I learned the trolling game hunting down stripers. As with most things, it's mostly preparation. Get some good maps of the Delta, or get on navionics...

    Re: Walnut Grove 9/21

    I love the thrill of salmon fishing, I'm not very good at it and I've gone home on many trips with an empty cooler, but it is an awesome feeling watching them surface and you see that chrome. The...

    Re: Thoughts on Flasher in front of Silvertron?

    I don't run flashers or dodgers when I am in the Sac river trolling for salmon because i hate picking the grass out of my gear. It's just one more thing that might catch grass or weeds or other junk,...
  10. Re: Got the skunk in just 2nd trip. Sac River above Crawdads

    Nice fish! I went out for my first river outing and got skunked. Trolled spinners of various colors and marked some fish on the sac, but only two short strokes for all my effort. Going to try again...

    Re: Surface striper Pinole/rodeo

    If you have the funds, get a wood turned plug like a dwb. Glide baits are fun too. If you are on a budget, try a whopper plopper, these are effective baits if you time the tide/light right, even from...

    Try a drop shot with a robo worm hooked just at the nose. Be very subtle with the action you impart. Use light colors as the sun starts to get higher into the sky. Top water and other baits that...

    Re: Weather conditions in SF bay?

    it's worth the effort to go stinger on the end, whether you use live or frozen bait. most of your hook up will come on that stinger. Just make a bunch of them the night before so you dont have to...

    Thanks Seon, when I went to net it the leader broke and she thought we lost it. She immediately turned her back in frustration and when it told her I got it, she was jumping up and down.
