    So what if you want to do a tide ride but the other kids (and a second car) can't come out and play?

    Here's a clue as to why dm3 was killing 'em with a clear ScorcherZ on Saturday....

    see the motorboat speeding down the middle of the bay.
    Speed, boat, speed.
    See the boat go thud on a mud flat because the water was 10 inches deep
    Thud, boat, thud.
    See the silly people get out of the boat to see why it stopped.
    No, seriously. You can see 'em standing around looking clever...

    According to the tide chart, they coulda got the boat unstuck about 8:30 p.m.....if they can break the suction from jamming it into the mud.

    The fishing sucked....lots of weeds from Saturday's big surge....never found a hot spottie spot. But the tide performed admirably, moving me from point A to Point B right on schedule.

    Ended the day with a paltry 15 bass, one yellowfin croaker, and a tiny halibut.


    and on the way home, don't forget to collect the cart from the bike rack...

    Years ago I tried to get the Ramona Water board to allow Float Tubes in Lake Ramona. My plan was to cart my tube from Blue Sky preserve on a modified 3 wheeled golf cart. I failed to convince the board.

    BTW, that boat thing happens all the time at the river, with no high tide to help.

    A wise man once told me....
    Never leave fish to find:
    a. fish.
    b. total consciousness.
    c. even smaller fish.
    d. your way off the water before dark.

    Same trip, different day.
    Afternoon tide ride...spent too much time telling lies w other fishers met along the walk. Launched at 2:30...had 27 tiny spotties by 5:30. (Spent another hour kicking back to the truck.)
    Nine fish per hour.
    Seecret spots.
