    Left my house, drove past San V, drove past the turnoff to El Cap...yep, went to Murray! What! Am I nuts?? I've got a long history there, and besides, It's Monday and I know Mr. Vinnybass never misses a Monday there and that's worth the price of admission!! It was kind of a weird day..seemed like a perfect topwater morning, but it just wasn't happening! The shad were coming up, the bass, not so much. When I saw Mr. Vinny having a tough time getting the topwater going, I knew it was time to go to the worm! Still a tough day all around, picked up maybe a clone an hour..lots of fish suspended around 25', but had a blast telling fish stories with Mr. Vinny! Oh, and thanks to Mr.Vinnybass's photographic expertise, I have a photo of my one special nugget of the day! Screenshot_20190923-155137_Messages.jpg

    It was a very tough day on the lake today. My missed opportunities that mcfish witnessed brought me some excitement. The real highlight of the day was watching mcfish reel in that 6.25lb bass on light line.That bass had a big head and if it ate a little better....it could’ve easily went 7-8lbs.
    My dink and topwater bass(that I finally caught)were no match to the fun I had chatting and fishing near mcfish throughout the day. He knows this lake well and even on this very tough day was able to catch bass. Nice job! He also used a few secret weapons that he had stored in his tackle box that I cannot talk about..... ha ha. :)
    Rumor has it that if he continues to come and out fish me each week, the City may change the name of the lake to.....LAKE McFISH

    Yes.....that is the one and only mcfish!
    I don't recognize many folks here at Murray, but mcfish has a certain mystique about him and easy for me to recognize.....kind of the like the way you may recognize Vic up at Sutherland. :)

    Pretty much so...10lb head..6lb body! I'm transplanting San V bass to Murray, lots of shad in Murray! I'm thinking the San V bass are on some Vegan diet!

    Nice! What about all the pre fishing on Sunday, Vinny? I left early after catching a bird then back lashing braid. Just one of those days.

    Oh my god that is kind of funny because mcfish had a bird grab his fluke and it wouldn’t let go of it and he held on till it got next to the boat ....it was pretty crazy!!!Sunday didn’t last long because my girlfriend asked if I wanted to go to the bass pro shop (if you can believe that)so I came home quickly and we headed up there. We ate lunch and I only spent a little over $100 In gear I really didn’t really need...ha ha
    Looking forward to hopefully some good topwater action before winter.

    I'm just glad I got to witness the vampire/Murray master up close on that point. Maybe next time I'll ask for an autograph.

    Ha ha..... don’t be silly.
    I’m just a lazy old man that lives a mile and a half from the lake and tries to fish it on my days off.
    Now seeing mcfish down here fishing....now that's something fun to witness! :)

    Wait just one minute your saying the girlfriend wanted to see if you wanted to go to bass pro shop, what’s up with that do you practice some type of hypnotism or what, my wife has never asked me that before?

    I'm thinking maybe
    I should get a decent video camera and devote what ever days Vinny either goes fishing or to BPS and film EVERYTHING!! San Diego loves fishing legends! mc fish can do some third person narration ! Cameo's by sdfish members on the water giving their explanations as to what makes Vinny SO DAMN GOOD at fishing, what to look for if any of us mortals ever get to shop at BPS. Who knows maybe some spy footage of Vinny pulling the arm on his favorite slot machine. This really feels right!! Kind of the Larry himel of San Diego lakes.
