    Two weeks on the water and coming home

    Spent the first week with my buddy in his boat just cruising the delta and seeing friends for a week. Not much fishing, just rafted up together in places like Mildred Island, a secret little place we know, Georgianna Slough, and Prospect Slough. (Sturgeon fishing there with no action)

    Now another week alone in Horseshoe Bend and both ends of Monte Slough. Head back to Vallejo tomorrow, then home.

    TBH, my fishing attempts have been scattered and inconsistent. I fish when I want to....not 'cause I have to. Makes fishing very relaxing without pressure. It's more of a get-away type retreat than a fishing tournament.

    It's been fun learning new things about my boat and my boat handling skills, the interface between my various new systems on the boat and my boat's capacities! (fresh water, holding tank and electrical capacities!)

    Fly, that sounds like a blast to me! You out there for two weeks straight or coming back to shore often?

    What a great camping trip that would be.
    Here they come!

    That's a great report. Glad you stuck 'em.

    I'm out in Monte and have been fishing cured ghost and (live) nightcrawlers for the afternoon. All I've got to show for it is an underaged striper.

    I tried eel in Prospect a week ago with no love. Weatherwise, I picked a good couple of weeks to be on the water!!

    Back to the fleet 8/14

    Not sure if I should submit a whole 'nother report but my crew and I had an insane night of sturgeon fishing last night. Got to the spot about an hour after high tide and boom, in 15 minutes my buddy reeled in our first fish to the boat, a 30" or so beauty that got airborne 5-6 times before settling down. 20 minutes after that i got a nibble that stuck when i set it, but the way it hit i was thinking i had a garbage fish. Dont i feel like an idiot, turns out it was a large fish (40"+) that was gunning straight for the boat. Got a good look when it jumped straight towards us and spat the hook. Dreamt of that one when i got to bed! Lesson learned, always assume a dinosaur.

    My buddy's luck however, only got better. He ended getting another little guy (30" again) just as the sun was setting. And then at low tide, about midnight, my buddy got another subtle bite which turned into a gorgeous 42" fish! That bad boy put up a good fight and my buddy was able to land his first keeper!! We used a variety of baits; the first three on the hook all came on grass shrimp/eel combo but the keeper was taken on a pileworm. Conditions were 30-40' of water on the outgoing tide, ending at low tide. We fished from about 7 pm to 1 am. I hope the rest of y'all have the same luck! Pics to follow...
