Another great hookup. We were all on a Smallie mission, but it was not to be, only a few were rewarded with the target, but we all got into some fish.
I landed a fat 14.5 inch LMB in front of " BAMCAMP". First fish of the day was giant Crappie mike caught on the troll, Ill post that one in a bit, I have to get a frame from a movie... Hours later I caught a 20 inch Striper at Barn cove, I was using the Baitrunner reel, it was a gas to let him take lots of line before throwing the gears to him.
Nights and mornings were friggin cold, ice on the yaks. On the first night I ran into one of the posts around the lot, no advil/sleep for me :smt009 Itlooks worse than it was, even tho its a bit swelly still.
I gave da Mooch a watercolor I did to remind him of the Bean...
Mooches dog is the cutest! He did great on this first camping trip, when I first saw him I was thinking, A little princess in the woods, how cute, but he turned out to be a champion camping dog, swimming, growling at the coons. And bouys...
FAC water.
And a house fire on the ridge a mile away, everything went up, even the fuel tanks went, bummer.

Dang, I'm sorry I couldn't get down there.  Looks like you guys had a blast.

I got hung up in this MLPA package deadline (due today).  And I got my truck hugely stuck on Friday.

The trip started with bizarre NCKA synchronicity...  I was truckin' north in the dark, just south of Petaluma when my phone rings and it's Adam asking where I am...  he's just leaving Petaluma after checking for minnows...  so we meet up in Santa Rosa and as we're rolling north I see Mooch pull up next to me in a Saturn...  at the same instant Mickfish calls to see what's shakin....  So I'm following Adam, talking to Mike, looking at Mooch...  completely unplanned and too funny.

it was a strange morning, running into each other on the road up, but when we found minnows at Mendo Store, the strange feeling subsided and was replaced with JOY!
We were able to get the spots that get reserved a year in advance, so that was nice. Lotsa room&shade!
We hit the water as ASAP and Kylo was the first in the hatch. Soon he wanted to know what the shinny floor was made of.(see pic 2)

pic1~Kylo the lil'boy, soon to be a lil'MAN.

pic2~ curiosity wet the dog

pic3~ once upon a time, in front of BAM Camp!

What can I say - another great gathering with quality folks!!!

I brought my sister's dog = Kylo. He is a Pomeranian half Chihuahua pooch (almost a year old) that has never been camping. According to da boyz, Kylo passed with flying colors :smt002
