Rack Traffic

 Saturday July 18, 2020   Every week this summer seems to get harder and harder to catch fish.  It could be the insane pressure by bait fishermen on the trash racks.  A couple boats with 4 or more anglers have been killing many fish weekly.   Three of them appeared to have come together and many…

Another Afternoon Session

 Friday July 10, 2020– The Wind Finder prediction  was encouraging all week long. It looked like a great morning to fish.  Vaughn and Dan had a decent day yesterday landing 17 nice fish in the afternoon.   They couldn’t fish the morning because the forecast was wrong again.  They arrived at the lake greeted by…

Finally a break in the Wind…

Monday June 29,2020  It’s been two weeks since I fished the lake.   It seems that its only calm on the three days I work a week and the wind prediction (windfinder) has been unreliable lately.   A couple friends have take the drive to the lake not believing the Wind Line and ended up turning around. …

The New Normal

Sunday June 14, 2020 –  These last two week back to work at the office have seemed unusually long despite seeing about half our normal patient load.   There is so much more preparation and post op sterilization  for the same number of patients making if feel like twice as much work for the same amount…

March gets cold and the fish go deep…

 Sunday March 8, 2020  The rains have returned leaving only one day this weekend without wind and rain.   I thought last week I would be in Disneyland with family,   but travel planes were postponed because of the ‘rona’ and I decided to “self quarantine” myself to the middle of San Luis Reservoir.   Also  I decided…

Fishing with Kimmie

 Feb 22, 2020 -I don’t know what happened this week that was different  from  the last that would make such a difference in the fishing in only 5 days ago. Maybe the racks have been hot since the beginning of the year.   So many things came together today.  Mark left for Cabo for his…

Still Sucks at San Luis 2020

Sunday Feb 16, 2020  After a month of working on boats,  I finally got the Crestliner out on the water today trying to catch some stripers.    My first trip out on the big lake in January,  I got skunked and since then others have hit the big lake and forebay with very little luck. …
