    Default All Bass All The Time

    Bass are not everybody's cup of tea but right now that is all I am doing. I might have to mix in some speckled carp to shake things up. I will be trying for salmon next month. That will break up the bass fishing if the speckled carp are not biting.

    The winds were light in the Delta today. It is kind on like a flat day on the ocean - when conditions are right you have to go. I decided to put the stripers on the back burner today and go primarily after the largemouth. I tried topwater first and got a couple but also lost a few which I did not like. It seemed they were not fully committing and as a result not staying on. I switched to a streamer and they stopped getting off. When the sun got up I tried a worm fly and got a couple on that. Some good fishing and I was home in time for lunch.


    Today's streamer pattern.


    The fish's view of the worm fly.


    Nice one on the worm fly.


    Big one on the streamer. He was sitting in a narrow cut waiting for hapless prey to wander by.


    One of the little known secrets to catching fish is having good stickers on your boat. The fish see them and know you are a friendly angler and are more willing to bite.

    That is a good sticker. I like it. I am sure it has helped your tarpon catch. I only put on stickers of fish I have caught in the boat so I could not put a tarpon sticker on. I also only wear fish t-shirts with fish on them that I have caught. I have a vermillion shirt on now which is okay because I have caught a vermillion. It is a good shirt. A high school teacher from Santa Cruz made it.

    A lot of cool stickers out there. We should have a sticker thread. I like brewery stickers also. I have a bunch of those.

    I read those books in my youth. The Hobbit was good for me but the trilogy was a little long. I liked the Gollum character. Who doesn’t like a grungy little guy hiding out in a cave? I think that sticker could bring Gollum the six pound bass out of his hiding place in the weeds. That would be cool.
