New Melones Rainbows 9-1-2021

I invited Tim Sellers to go to New Melones with me, I haven’t been there in some time. We launched the boat and headed out and started marking fish and lots of bait. It wasn’t long and Tim was the first one to get bit but was lost, then it wasn’t long before I landed a fish. The day was a nice relaxing day catching some really nice fish and letting some go with a great friend….

Don Pedro Rainbows 8-26-2021

New clients Dane, Scott and Tim were onboard for a days fishing trip at Don Pedro. The morning we were fishing for kokanee but that was on the slow side for us and after a few hours of only landing two and a king, we also had a couple rainbows. I asked the guys if they wanted to try for trout and so we did. That was the right thing to do as we immediate results and the guys were happy as we had a lot of action and by the end of the trip they kept 12 Rainbows, two kokanee and a King Salmon, releasing eight rainbows besides. A great day with three great guys! Thanks for coming out.

Trout, kokanee and King Salmon @ Don Pedro 8-24-2021

Returning clients Kevin and his dad Bud were back onboard for another outing. The day was a great one as we had a great bite on both kokanee and Rainbows. They landed 9 kokanee and a King Salmon by 10:45 and I gave them two options of calling it a day or switching over to rainbows, so we switched over to the trout and by 12:30 they landed 12 Rainbows. What a great day with two great guys. Thanks again!!!

Kokanee, Rainbows and King Salmon @ Don Pedro 8-20-2021

New clients Mike and his wife Selina were onboard for some fishing. After setting the four rods at various depths it wasn’t long and we had our first fish of the day. The day was Smokey but that didn’t stop the fish from biting. The highlight of the day was when Selina reeled in a six pound King Salmon. The day ended with the duo landing eight kokanee, Five trout and a single King Salmon. A great day with a great couple. Thanks again!!

Don Pedro King Salmon, kokanee and Rainbows 8-3-2021

Return clients Lorenzo and his son Lorenzo Jr. were back onboard with me at Don Pedro on August the 3rd. After setting the four rods its was minutes and we had our first strike but was missed. We continued on looking on the sonar for life below and we started seeing arches and soon we were catching fish. The first couple were kokanee then we has a rod get hit and Lorenzo fought the fish and I could tell that it looked to be a really nice fish as it kept taking line and when it appeared behind the boat it was a very nice king and after netting it and snapping a few photos I weighed the fish and it tipped the scale at 5.7 pounds. We went about out day of fishing, catching and loosing a few and they opted to release most of the trout. The days tally was one king, five kokanee and two trout. A great day with great people. Thanks again for coming back!!

Hogan Stripers 8-2-2021

Long time clients Harry and Robert were back onboard today for some striper action. The morning started off pretty quickly by Harry landing the first striper of the morning and soon after Robert took his turn. The bite was not fast as there are to many other people fishing for the stripers, however I pull out my bag of tricks we began to fill the Reliable fish bag with fish. We settled in and continued to put fish in the bag and by the end of the trip they had ten very nice stripers from the waters of Hogan reservoir.. Thanks again guys!!! Harry was camera shy so only Robert in the photo.

Don Pedro King Salmon, Kokanee and Rainbows 7-29-2021

Long time client Mike and new comer Ed were onboard for a day of fishing at Don Pedro. Ed wanted to catch some kokanee out of Don Pedro. The morning started off with basically a double hook up as one rod went off and as soon as I netted the first fish the second had a fish on, the best part of this was they were both King salmon. Ed brought his in first and the Mike. Mikes weighed 5.2 pounds and Ed’s fish shut the scale off and I know the scale it shuts off after five and a half and looking at this fish I would say six pounds. The day wasn’t fast by any means but we ended the day with four king salmon, six kokanee and three rainbow trout. They let several trout go and a few of next years kokanee, we lost a few and had some missed opportunities. A great day on the waters of Don Pedro with a couple of great guys. Thanks again!!

Hogan Stripers 7-26-2021

Long time client john and Greg and they brought along friend Stephen for some Striper fishing. The morning was cool, cloudy with a breeze. After setting the first rod it was fish on, but that was short lived as it came unbuttoned. The morning was filled with action and we finally started putting fish in the Reliable fish bag. We moved around and stayed away from all the other boats catching a fish here and there. We ended the day with 10 stripers and we had several missed opportunities and a few lost fish. Another quality day with quality guys.. Thanks again everyone…

Don Pedro Three Species Day 7-22-2021

New clients Phil, Dominic and Evan were onboard for a day of fishing. The day started off with not even a second rod in the water and fish on and in the Reliable fish bag. This is how it would go for awhile and in no time we had six fish in the bag, then things slowed down but we would get a fish here and there then it went dead for an hour then it started to pick back up and we would have small flurries of bites. Then about noon the bite picked back up and we really started catching fish. We ended the day with 10 trout and 13 kokanee and a King Salmon for our efforts. A great day with with great guys. Thanks again everyone!!!

Hogan Stripers 7-21-2021

Changed up things today and took Tim to Hogan to check things out, as I have some upcoming trips. This trip was just about getting things dialed in, and I believe we nailed it. We had steady action for some time then it did slow down like normal, however we still was able to put fish in the Reliable fish bag. We ended the day with 13 stripers, lost five and missed another five. Great day with a great friend, and just nice to fish and BS today.
