Looking at the calendar, our Saturdays for the next few months are booked! We better get out while we can and do some fishing!
It was rainy, but we've got a top on the boat for that...
We've learned over the years that Jan and Feb are slow months for Sturgeon - at least for us! Oh well, we had to get out.
We took all kinds of bait on this trip - smelt, squid, anchovies, even nightcrawlers. The one thing we didn't take was sand shrimp, and wouldn't you know it - everyone else had good action with the shrimp!
The nightcrawlers did well for us - we did get a few shakers.
We tried several new spots - outside of this drydock was cool.
Noisy, though - they were working all day.
After 45 minutes of 'nuthin', we moved.
Here's a fun little shaker we got on nightcrawler.
We hit 5 different spots, and it was slow at all of them. We all got at least one shaker, and Jake caught 3 or 4 of them.
Tons of boats out, too. The fish counter said it had been slow for everybody, and the 3 other boats at the launch when we pulled out hadn't even caught a shaker!
Oh well, it was fun!
