thanks for doing the live report..
I too had to bail at 115am... had to fly to SoCal on short notice but I will try to catch everyone in later afternoon before everything wraps up...

I was bummed cuz  I was tasked with picking up the shiners for the Loose Screws.. Had to unload my car in the wee early morning hours and seeing the yakkers OTW from the Bay Bridge this morning really underscored that I  was missing out..

Anyway...good luck everyone out there today..

Nice weather today on the water; better than previous attempts. Unfortunately, didn't boat any fish; had one scratch, but that's it.  Started the day with 4 1/2 shiners; one gave up before sending him down to work and one jumped out as I was adding more water in the baitbucket. Drifted for a while while Chaeki trolled hoochies along side; zippo for both. Then as we started f-ing around while being bored, my line starts scream... stupid me forgot it was on a circle hook and shiner came unbuttoned.... that's was it for me!

Thanks Eric and crew for putting this all together; had a blast being seeing fellow NCKA brothers again. Dogs, chips and soda were a welcome sight after being on the water for 6 hours with no food!!!! Congrats to all the winners and hope to see you all at PIF Paddle in a couple of weeks or ALBION next month.

I'll post pictures later, gotta clean the gear and put it all away!!!

Thanks Eric and Fisherman's Warehouse for another great event.  The fishing was slow but as always the company was great.  I caught and released one short Butt and lost a bigger one right at the surface.  No pictures so maybe it was just a dream.  It was great to finally get a little sunshine on the water.  I'm thinking everything is just going to happen late this year.  Maybe July will be the big butt month?

Can't thank Eric and F/W enough! Everything was great, but the fishing; slow.

G-Whiz, if you can find a piece of foam from an old dock, the blue stuff, your yak will be PATRIOTIC! :smt044  I got nothing but love for you brutha!
