One of those reports you really don't want to post... I suck. I really need to learn how to chase these Green Trout.

Sat - hit Decker, with a buddy who is just starting to get back into fishing. Spent most of the day, watching fish eat off the back end of my Senkos. I oculdn't get them to bit anything else (tried everything from tiny grugs to frogs and evemn a huge swimbait), and they wouldn't hit the Senko, unless it was unencumbered in the back (ie, med Texas-rigger hook = 1/2 Senko eaten). Did manage a few dinks, bigest was just under 18").



Sun - Hit Bastrop, wih my frined and his wife. Pretty much the same story... biggest was aorund 19". I sucked.



We saw fish being caght all around us, but most were very small. Next weekend, I'll make up for it. Dang fish.

Don't feel bad. We fished Decker Sunday and except for some schooling whites and one big pig, I got shut out the rest of the day. My buddy caught 5 LM but nothing of size. I'm just glad I found big mama or the day would have been disappointing to say the least.

Well, don't let my numbers dissuade anyone... I suck at LM fishing. Frankly, I've never really targeted them. I grew up fishing Louisiana inshore, where "green trout" were mainly by-catch, at least in my family. I've done mainly reef and offshore, since then. So, I suck at bass. But I am intent on getting it down.

I've got some buddies who are a pretty good breadwinning tournament guys, on the Sacramento delta. We just chatted, and they schooled me on the bed bite. Looking back at all my misses, and my few wins, I think that's where I was going wrong - I assumed they were in aggressive feeding mode.

Anyhow, eager to get this stuff right. And, frankly, excited to be on a steep learning curve, even if it is for our coyntry's most popular sportfish.

The weekend was made more "challenging" by my buddy and his wife (beginning live-bait inshore fishermen) continually whining about how much better that fishery was, and how boring bass is.

They just didn't get how, the worse the fishing got, the more reluctant I was to pull the plug. And the more I got into trying new things. Hot or cold, I'm always that "one more cast" guy. It's not because I'm once of those uberly-competitive "there is no 2nd place" types, it's because I like to fish - even if I'm not catching, I'm having a blast trying. And that's why I have my own boat. LOL
