Returning client Rob Gordan brought along his buddies Jim and Mike fro a days fishing trip on the Sacramento River. The day started out fast as we only made it about a half mile down river when the starboard side rod got hammered and Mike was up first and we soon has our first fish of the day was in the net. We picked up and tried to stay ahead of the school of fish, we did mark a few fish, but they were reluctant to strike, then on one pass as I was telling a story the port side rod was getting hammered, but before anyone could get the rod out of the holder the fish let go, and just another 50 yards down stream the same thing happened again, and that would be it for the day. Thanks again guys. Sorry for the slow action, but if the fish are not coming through the system it makes for a tough day.
New clients Dennis, Glenn and Larry were onboard with me on the Sac River on October the 11th for some king salmon fishing. The day was very slow for us, we were marking a few fish, but they didn’t wanna strike for us, however at about noon Bamm! FISH ON and it was Dennis to be the first one on the rod, he fought the fish great and I was soon able to net the fish. This would be the only fish for us on day, still a great day with three great guys. Thanks again everyone.
Returning clients John and Kathy Lecaas and their son John joined me on the river for a days king salmon trip. The day was a tougher day on the river with only two strikes on the day, but the two strikes did produce two nice king salmon from the Sacramento River these great people. Thanks again to everyone for the great day
Retuning client Ricardo Mares brought along his friends Freddie and Allen along for a days fishing trip on the Sac river. We started out with Fred getting the first fish of the morning in a short period of time, then things kind of went quite for awhile, after a few hours we were telling story’s when all of a sudden the port side rod was hammered very hard and we all cleared the other lines, this fish that Allen was fighting was taking line in a fast way and putting up a great. Allen was finally able to get the big fish within distance of the net and I was able to get the net under it. We took some photos an, continued fishing and towards the end of the day, one of the back rods started pulsing hard and it was then Ricardo’s turn and he was able to put his king salmon in the net. Thanks again guys for the great day.
Returning client Tony Martinez brought along his family members Frank and his daughter Lyndsay Sedillo. We started the morning with instructions on what to do when a fish is hooked up and after deciding who would go first and after I set three rods and just getting the fourth rod into the holder the hollered FISH ON! and Lyndsay was up and fighting the fish and the others cleared the rods and after a good short fight I had the fish into the net. I reset all the rods and we didn’t go a 100 yards and the port side rod was doubled over and it was Franks turn and again after a short fight we had our second fish in the boat, all before the sun was up. The boat was just full of energy and the fish were in the river, Tony’s turn was next and it didn’t take long before he had his king salmon in the net. The day was full of high fives and lots of laughter, so it was Lyndsay’s turn and again she put her second king in the boat in short order and she was done for the day wit her limit of king salmon, now frank and Tony’s turns were next. On another pass the fish seemed not to be getting the hooks all the way and we lost four fish on the day and one of the fish that was lost was so close to the boat that was valiantly was shaking his head and I knew it would come undone but after the fish stopped it took off and when it was coming back I was waiting for it with the net, but it turned and the hook came flying past me, now this fish was a big boy, probably about 25 to 30 pounds, we all cried. We had several missed opportunities on the day. A great day with great people thanks again everyone.
New clients Marek, Andrew and Sakunthara fished with me on October the 7th on the Sac river. We started the morning with instructions on what happens when we get a fish on and after along first pass one of the rods doubled over and we all sprang into action and Marek was the first one on the rod, and after a good fight we had our first king in the box. A short time later we had another hard take down and it was Sakunthara’s turn and the others cleared the rods and we soon had our second fish in the cooler. After many passes without anything and we were getting close to the end of the days trip and everyone was very relaxed when all of a sudden one the back rods double over hard and Andrew sprang into action and after a good fight we had a very nice king in the boat, and we called it a day and headed for the dock. Thanks again everyone for the great days fishing.
New clients Chris and his buddy Stan fished with me on Saturday the 1st of October. We launched early and headed out for our first pass of the day, almost to the end of our first run we had fish on and Chris grabbed the rod and Stan and I myself cleared the other rods and as the fish came to the boat we got a glimpse of it and as it rolled and turned the hook fell out of its mouth. It wasn’t long and it was Stan’s turn and this fish was hooked a little better, as I was able slide the net under this one. Then things slowed down for a while, however later on one pass we had four grabs where the fish would hit it , but just not get all of it, then about 11:00 the port side rod got slammed and Stan grabbed the rod while Chris and I cleared the other rods, the fish was on the side of the boat going down when all of a sudden the fish came flying out of the water and cleared the gunnel of the boat and I had the net in the perfect position as it came down it landed in the net, so about 40 minutes Chris landed his last fish of the day. A great day on the Sacramento river with two great guys with limits of king salmon. Thanks again guys.
Mike and Charlie were onboard with me on September the 28th on the sac river to do some salmon fishing. We started fishing and almost at the end of our first pass the port side rod was getting slammed, so mike went into action while Charlie and myself cleared the other rods, after a good short battle I was able to slide the fish into the net, after a quick photo we picked up and headed back to the top of the run, on the second pass nearly in the same spot as the first, the same rod again was slammed and it was Charlie’s turn, this fish really put up a great battle and they thought it was a smaller fish like the first, but when it got close to the boat and we could see it,and it was not small by any means, this fish weighed 22 pounds. Then the bite died for a couple of hours, but we were not giving up. Then we were marking a few fish and I changed some tactics and after 20 minutes one of the back rods was pulsing and mike jumped into action, however half way to the boat the fish was gone, so after setting the rods it was five minutes and the other rod was pulsing and Charlie went in to action, and soon I was able to slid the 20 pound king into the net. I figured let’s make one more pass just to see what would happen and we didn’t go 50 yards and the starboard side rod was screaming, so mike grabbed the rod and soon we had Mike and Charlie’s limits of king salmon from the Sacramento river. A great day with two great guys. Thanks again you two.
I’ve been itching to go to the Sacramento River and try for the king salmon. I called my dad to see if he would like to go for a ride and see what was up and I had a new technique to try. We launched the boat and headed out, we made a couple passes in the stretch of river we were fishing and on the third pass at about 8:45 the port side rod started bouncing, I grabbed the rod and handed it off to my dad, I was then able to get the boat slowed down and he began fighting the fish, the fish was really putting up a great battle and after about close to 15 minutes we put this nice 16 pound buck in the ice chest. We fished till 12:30 and called it a day. A very successful day with a new technique.
