The Last RV Trip

January 28, 2019 – I had a very good friend in 1992 come to me with a cash problem. He needed some fast cash and offered me a chance to buy a brand new Fleetwood Searcher 25 foot motorhome for half price. At the time, it seemed like a dumb idea with two toddlers at…

First Stripers of 2019

    Saturday Jan 19, 2019:   It seems like months have gone buy since fishing San Luis but not so much time that I didn’t remember how slow it was for me last November. Last year was not a banner year for me at the Lake. The fall fishing in the Delta was pretty good…

More Jurassic Lake…

Its been a busy couple weeks since Ive been back from Jurassic Lake Lodge.  Both Mia and Mark came home for the Christmas Break and we had a great busy family Christmas.  The main event of the last two weeks however was my son’s marriage proposal to his girlfriend Phoebe of nearly 8 years.  That…

Christmas Island 2018

October 20-30, 2018  The American Dental Association meeting went back to Honolulu this last month after 11 years. I received a call from my cousin Kenneth and Dr Les Wong about borrowing some equipment for a trip to Christmas Island after the convention. It didn’t take much convincing to join them since I had already…

Seasick on San Luis

Monday Sept 3, 2018 – Today I almost got seasick on San Luis Reservoir.   The San Luis Gentleman’s club hit the racks with success yesterday landing over 100 fish between them all in  calm weather and no Dam Police.  Today’s weather report looked like yesterdays-a little wind in the morning dying down by 9:00 am. …

Alberta 2018

 August 26 – Sept 1, 2018 -It doesen’t seem right to lead off this post by saying that this is the worst week of fishing Cam and Pauly have seen in 17 years.   The abnormal for them was still pretty exciting and new for me having memories of some of the hottest weeks in…

Go Deep

Sunday August 19, 2018 -Its been a month since I’ve fished the Big lake having been blown off the water basically the whole month of July.   The last time I fished the lake was with Steve and we caught a bunch at the racks fishing deep.   I was hoping for a repeat.  It turned out…

Banzai at the Powerstaion

 As I get older, its harder and harder to get up in the morning to fish.  I try to REM for every minute till that alarm goes off and then I have the coffee, breakfast, meds,  bathroom routine down to exactly 20 minutes.   Then another 10 minutes to put the boat on the truck…

Steve owns the Racks. Wacky Racky

I dont think I ever caught so many cloned 17 inch schoolies ever. Our biggest today was only 20 inches but very few were like that. Today Steve and I caught over 40 stripers in San Luis. I hadn’t fished with Steve since last year in Bolivia, and he’s still got the moves at 86…

The Summer Pattern

Saturday June 23, 2018 -The first day of Summer came this week and SL again has gone into its “Green” mode with algae blooms, unpredictable winds, sub legal stripers in the shallows and some epic number days. I’ve been trying to fish the lake for the last couple weeks but have been waking up to…
