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....

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...

I haven't been doing much fishing the last couple months but got out for an overnighter on Monday. I took some time away from fishing since my trip to not Cody, lingering shoulder problems persisted and were causing some nerve irritation down my arm into my hand. Nerve shit is scary and it got me thinking about the long term future and there were a few times I really didn't know if or when I would be fishing again...With a lot of work things have improved over the last couple months but still along way to go to correct the poor mechanics and bad habits brought on by 3+ years of favoring, guarding and recovering from injury. Ball and socket joints are a motha'

Fuckin wakeboards...



Anyways... Last week I checked if the shad were in town as they had been rumored to be.

Image
They were...When the shad show up the river banks get crowded and the striper have a never ending buffet of herring snacks. In years past we've fished for weeks on end with out touching a stripe so I headed to the river with the intention of just lazily swinging for shad, drinking beer and enjoying whats looking like the last of the cooler weather.

Image
Grabbed some tacos.

Image
Loaded up with the god.

Image
Checked in on the newest river chicken.

Image

Image
Poked around in some stripe water I like, got teased but bycatch put me on the board.

Image
Pulled into a slew and got blown up on the first chug...new plan: fuck shad, throw top water, pick on green fish.

Image

Image
Threw camp up and got back to it.

Image

Image

Image
Sun started to drop, made a few more cast and headed back towards the beach.

Image

Image

Image

Image
K.I.S.

Image
Thought about some random dude I've never met who had to put down his god last week, sorry for your loss BM, Ernie shares a striking resemblance to the family golden retriever I grew up with...the god got a few extra scratches, a sip of IPA and a few bites of sausage in the god bowl.

Image
Drank a few and enjoyed the night...

Image

Image

Image
Crawled into what I thought was my bed, god thought otherwise.

Image

Image
Woke up and picked on a few more.

Image
Blew some shots at poop fish.

Image

I bought a new troot rod a few months ago, it hasn't moved...I might trade it for a poop fish rod, they seem like more fun.

Got a lot of poop fishin fisheries around here but they always seems to be an afterthought. After sight casting to a few 20+ lbers I can see why its addicting, just gotta figure out what the river poopers like to eat.
