    This fish is straight rainbow trout markings. Google search doesn’t show any white bass with rainbow trout markings. Could be wrong.

    Before everyone gets upset, the dumb kids part is a joke. Mike is old, I guess he hasn’t learned it’s physically challenged yet.

    Funny looking little trout

    My kids were cracking up when they pulled this thing out of the water. Looked like a cross between a rainbow trout and a bluegill. Caught in Utah.

    CA knows what's good for you. The forest is closed.

    So just for arguments sake. I looked at caltrans this morning before I left for work. There was a full closure on the opposite side of the freeway well away from where I was exiting the freeway. Big rig rolled and was trapped, listed as a fatality. Resources limited due to the investigation...

    CA knows what's good for you. The forest is closed.

    Is that what you take from the quote below: We do not take this decision lightly but this is the best choice for public safety," said Regional Forester Jennifer Eberlien. "It is especially hard with the approaching Labor Day weekend, when so many people enjoy our national forests." The...

    Red Rooster III 5-day August 26th-31st **NO GUADALUPE BECAUSE 2 PASSENGERS DON’T HAVE PASSPORT**

    Is it on the Rooster or Mark from Charkbait to kick the passengers off the trip? I would think being that’s it’s a charter it would be up to the charter master to decide what to do.

    Need help with new budget YT setup

    The Daiwa you mentioned would be a decent choice. I would look at the 30 or 40 though. A budget reel I also like is the okuma Cortez. They are good reels and are about 160 I think. Graftech rods are nice for the price point at around $170. Other option for rod would be to wait for the...

    Advice & Recommendations on my new SPJ rig

    The rod did not work great for overhand casting as the line would get wrapped on the tiny spiral wrapped guides. It was fine when I could under hand lob it off the corner. Not too familiar with slow pitch jigging but would figure the goofish rod would have the same issues when trying to fly...

    Advice & Recommendations on my new SPJ rig

    I just picked up a Penn Battalion 30lb spj rod and a fathom 8 spooled with 30 because it was fun to pull on in the shop. Primary use would be for rockfish. I was leaving on a 1.5 day the following evening so the rod was coming with me. We were fishing 8-10 pound dorado with a few yellowtail...

    Tonight’s trip was canceled due to lack of interest. I was told by the landing your trip came in early because the bait rolled. Any truth to that one. Great trip either way.

    BFT line suggestion

    It’s a double edged sword. I left Wednesday ona 1.5 day with my 11 year old. My goal was for him to hook a fish. He did and luckily it bit 50 on a torque 40n. He killed that fish in 10-15 minutes with minimal help. Fish were definitely line shy and bit 25 and a few times 30 after my son...
