Jose is getting handy with the wok.

Hopefully he's upgraded to real sriracha...

Got a text from cornholio last week.

“Not much happening out on the delta right now. It’s been cold. Windy. Fish are scattered, and the few I’ve found have all been small. Want to go out?”

“Fuck yeah.”

Woke up at 2:00 AM Friday morning. Took my time loading the cooler and packing the truck before hitting the road.

Got to the launch early. Decided to string up the rods, but it was still dark, and I hadn’t thought to bring a headlamp. There were lights in the shitter, so I strung up in there and then dropped a Franzen in the bowl.

Went back to the truck and enjoyed a hearty breakfast of Cohiba and beer while waiting for my ride.

Cornholio arrived exactly when he said he would, boat in tow, and minutes later we were on the water.

After a brief but scenic cruise, he dropped the trolling motor and we started casting. A minute later I snapped this photo.

In thirty minutes he hooked close to a dozen fish. I used that same period of time to blow out my elbow. Fortunately we had a first aid kit on board.

I put away the rods, made myself comfortable, and enjoyed the day.

Occasionally I’d watch the geese....

Thank goodness we don’t have near that number of mergansers.

Our first trip out of the year, a little late, yes. Found a sweet little dive of a hotel, we’ve been there six times so far. Many will know this river, glad I found it so close to home. We caught fish...
