    Went to Murray with high hopes of catching a number of healthy bass(an attitude anyone should have who goes bass fishing). Weather was cool and overcast and later was warm and sunny. I fished deep with ice jigs and spoons at first for a while and nothing. Then worked senkos and t-rigged worms down the banks and at the edges of the tulles. I then switched to a drop shot rig(with a M.M.) deep in San Carlos arm and pulled in a tiny bass in about 3' of water next to the tulles. I worked that area hard and pitched in the tulles with other plastics and then went back to the drop shot and landed another small bass. I took off from that area feeling that there were bigger fish somewhere up in the main part of the lake off tulles with deeper water. Well....what sucks is I did not get another bite the rest of the trip after working several areas. I worked shallow and deep and even went back to where I caught the 2 dinks and nothing. It was not a fun trip, but the water temp was in the early 60's so things should be going off soon.
    My highlight was a great sandwich Deb made for me.

    Yay....a great sandwich(no mcfish I am not also eating the plastic bag)

    And I did not waste time taking pictures of the 2 dinks, but here is pic(from a different Murray trip) to give you an idea of about the size of them.....ha ha

    Every year is different, unless it is the same, then it is different than usual!

    Sorry, you know the rules..no photos, no drinks! Also, a plastic bag is not a toy, it is a choking hazard...no one under 70 should play with them! Next time at Murray, when you choke down a baggie, don't look to me for mouth to mouth....maybe Hiemlich maneuver though!

    Ok... I will try to be more careful and not get the plastic bag near my mouth when I eat my next sandwich. By the way...I am fine with the Heimlich. Deb said no mouth-to-mouth contact while I’m fishing with strangers or friends on SDFIsh. :)

    I think that lake up near your Koi pond might be the one I’m going to a little before April. There were things like this in there at the end of March last year. Oh yeah.. you told me that all the fish died, but I still might go up there and think about some of the good memories of last March anyway.

    So true! :)
    But I bet if I give him a few packs of Yum dinger worms and promised to use less than 2000 words each trip fisheromen would let me fish for a few months but not near him after my first 500 words.
