4/16 Delta Plugging

Very slow day for us. 4 fish total, 2 that would've kept. Fished the Sac above and below the bridge on the outgo, and the SJ side above and below the Antioch bridge on the flood.
On the upside, the water is looking the best I've seen all year, with 1' to 2' feet of visibilty in most areas....looking more like regular delta conditions. 56 to 58 degrees, depending. All our fish came on Trophy Baits Swimbaits in white. No love on the hard baits at all.
Talked a bit with Happy Hookers Sportfishing at the launch. They had a #9 and a #12 caught on the troll, so there are fish there, just not in our spots. I think they were trolling the deep slot.
Hopefully we'll be intercepting some of these post-spawn fish soon.
