We will be out there somewhere Bay on Sat. and move inland Delta Sat night. If all else fails and the fishing sucks we will still have the Bar B Que going off the back of the boat.
It is what it is.

Thats why you buy a boat with a sleeper and heater just in case. As far as the game goes we will be home in time for kickoff.

Mental note to self. buy bigger boat next time. Have side curtains and a back curtain and a buddy heater. Just not sure if I want to pull it all out. I am holding out for some spring time trout/Kokanee/Coho fishing :signs1180lq:

I agree but my boat is ready to roll or float just have to load the poles beer and food and go. Cost of trip free. Cost of getting away from the house priceless.

Knox~ i wanna do the derby this year, can you explain to me how it works. Been fishing for Sturgeon for years now, just never have done the derby. I got my favorite spots out in the western side of the delta. Maybe we can trade secrets or something about spots. But, overall, jusy curious what to expect...Thanks

One derby pays more and is more politically ran you know crooked like our President. The other pays less but they take the top 7 guys closest to the decided lenght and throw the names in the hat and draw. If you are good enough to place in the top 7 you have a chance of still winning first place. This is the info I have been given by others who have fished both before.
It is what it is.

We wont make it the boat cover ripped and the interior is trashed from the last storm. It was only 7200.00 worth of damage thank god for insurance now we just have to wait for the check.

wel headed out to one of my not so favorite spots but turned out to be pretty good! Didn't win the derby (or even place for that matter) but had a good time! One of the guys i work with got the first one, measured 52.5 inches, and mine later that day was 52 inches. After the clouds cleared out the wind out in the pittsburg area was freakin howlin'...called it qiuts at about 8 that night and got done with cleaning the fish around ten or so. The goal size for the derby was 63 inches and the last time i looked at the board someone had first place with 62 and 15/16. but again, ahd a good time for the first time that i ahve entered it. take care all!
