    My son Johnny was back from Sac State last week for his spring break and Sunday was our only chance to get out on the water.

    It was an epic day of fishing... the kind of day where you forget to eat and drink because your catching too many fish ... where you have to put new hooks on your crankbait because you have worn them out ... where you throw a plastic worm to give yourself a break ... from catching fish... Definitely one to remember. So fun to spend this day together with my son!

    The day started off good. We worked our way around the lake getting a few fish here and there on plastics and spinnerbaits. The crazy started, however, when the wind shifted directions and blew a huge baitball into the cove we were in. From then on it was 4 hrs of non stop 50+ fish on at least six different techniques!

    What an amazing day of fishing! We were having so much fun that we were both physically and emotionally exhausted at the end of the day. By far the most bass I have ever caught in such a small area in such a short period of time. We had a couple 5's and a few 3's and 4's. The biggest one, that probably would have gone 6 or 7 came unpinned right at the boat!

    Here are a few pics...

    I dont bass fish. But as far as I'm concerned, I think you guys should be sporting those sponsor shirts - you know, the ones that have a hundred different sponsor names embroidered into them. To me it seems as though you did better than those sponsored guys on television EVER do !! Nicely done !!

    Went back today hoping to find that bait ball again... wishful thinking. Still managed 15 but no real size.

    Thanks Creek, I wish that were true. Honestly, the fish God's were looking down on us. Those fish were literally delivered to us. Just perfect timing and lots of luck. I've been on a few spots that produced multiple fish, and I've had days where we caught numbers, but this was the best of both! If I had landed that big one... ugh...

    Are you sure you didn't take a wrong turn and ended up at Barrett?
    Seriously that must have felt like my first time I went to the first year Barrett.
