    Thanks for the info Don, I suspected they would only do traffic control. But you never know......Jetspray

    Pretty looking fish Don, I agree on the radio, I use a portable to listen and when I hear something I turn on the main radio to communicate. How was the launch and traffic? Were there any officers there or did they even do any inspections? Thanks....Jetspray

    Re: Pyramid opening day

    The radio was on all day and we did hear chatter now and then. Bill did a radio check and got a reply but no answer on their location. Did hear chatter from Blockhouse. Don't know if we can transmit that far. 6 watt doesn't reach out that far. A 25/50 watt with an eight foot tuned antenna, emphasis on tuned antenna, would do better. kkoh/780am broadcasts with 50,000 watts from Reno as an example. lol ... Marine band radios are line of sight also which doesn't help.

    I have reception on my Verizon phone in the Pelican area but none at 9 Mile beach.

    It was a good day all in all. Had fun chatting with Bill, catching fish, trying to figure out why my engine dies when at slow speed for trolling. I think it's the carb.

    All slot fish except for the three Bill mentioned. Lyman Bloody Frog and Green/White ladder back 4", Mag Lip Bloody Frog 3.5"

    27"...7.3lbs

    Good fishing guys. I'll give the shore a try Tuesday. I'll be happy with one.

    Most radios especially hand held types do not fair very well on Pyramid. As far a phones Verizon works best. Looks like you all had a great opener anyway......Jetspray

    Yes, we were mostly along south of the launch ramp to south of separator, went just short of pelican point and back to the dock.

    Pyramid opening day

    Hit the mid today with hooks, we landed 24, I think I got
    4 of them. Don't know what he puts on his lures, but
    anything he puts in the water the fish take it. We had 2
    about 18" and he landed a beautiful 27".
    thanks Don for a wonderful opening day, hope the rest of the
    season is just as good.
    be safe
