|You're right there Bob-always a treat taking the kids out. My youngest son and grandson fished with me Friday and Saturday. We did ok Friday but Saturday was pretty tough. Overcast Friday and dead calm. Saturday was a bit breezy for a while in the morning with bright sun. Calm in the PM.|
Friday we fished the San Joaquin along the rock walls and found a few. Headed up Holland and found a few more. Nothing over 4 pounds and no big numbers-a fish or 2 here and a fish or 2 there. Ended the day with 9 landed and missed a few grabs. Water clarity was good with temps 43-45 degrees. We fished 2/0 & 3/0 olive/chartreuse over white clousers on lead core-grandson was using an integrated fast sinking head. Lots of stops on the retrieve.
Saturday we fished the sloughs between Franks and Mildred and back to Whiskey-back out to Holland and ended the day in the Tract. Not much in the way of stripers but did manage a couple bass.
The kids had fun and like you said-that's what counts.
I fished yesterday for a few hours out on the San Joaquin along the rock walls and a slough near Franks- hooked into 6 but only landed 3 to 4 pounds. One of those days where they just came unbuttoned. Conditions were great-lite haze and dead calm. Better than 60 degrees in the afternoon.
It's been a good 2 months. Took the boat home today and will be taking the trailer home tomorrow. Looking forward to next fall.
