    Re: Sac metro salmon update

    Fished from shore at Miller from a variety of spots all morning for nada. No take downs or interest what so ever. Tried Silvertrons, Flying C’s and even tried casting a cut plug (Holstein). Too much algae and had to clear lines nearly every cast. Ugh!
    Saw one boat land two by boat launch drifting. (9:00ish and 10:30). Boat traffic seemed relatively light. Around 10 boats launched this morning. Water was clear.
    Hope this helps.

    Yeah, I got a ton of money in my wallet cuz my one dollar bills all identify as hundred dollar bills and you have to accept them.

    That's ok as I never heard them called anything else but a Jack and female (Betty) we all have called them different things at different times. I do understand your meaning of Jack also as this is my understanding of Jack, I still call them all Jacks if it's a male. Just my 2 peso input.

    If you have 104lbs of Salmon this year that is Excellent.
    Don't think Honkersworkin was being sensitive, he's just funny that way. Nice report.
