I did get out with Bobby and the focus was getting my 10 year old son Beau on some fish. Bobby was masterful with Beau and was a perfect gentlemen and teacher for him.
We had a glorious day with average fishing.Beau fished daylight to dark with conviction (amazing focus for a 10 year old) and ended the day with 11 fish, mostly on top water plugs but some crank baits.
His biggest fish of 8 or 9 pounds boiled on the plug three times and finally blasted the plug at the rod tip nearly spashing Beau in the face.Classic event and as I had hoped lite a fire in Beau to do more of it.
Bobby is an incredible angler-guide and knows the delta as well as anyone could.He produced an 8 plus pound LMB after first calling out where the fish would be and which cast would be the "pay dirt" cast. Pretty darn incredibe experience to be witness to.
I fished on Tuesday with Ken Lindsay owner of the fisherman's spot in Burbank Ca. We worked pretty hard for 23 or so fish 8 or so of those were top water fish. There was nothing of any real size, maybe 7 pounds .Ken is a wonderful fellow who is fun to fish with.He does a great job at his shop and is quite accomplished at the vise.
I have not had a great day of fishing in the last several outings but will be doing some more fishing soon so I am hopeful that I can land on a dream school.
I am hoping you and all the other folks out there had a great turkey day,we have so much to be thankful for.See you on the water. Chas
