    30+ trips to SanV since the opener, never been skunked. Today was the day.

    6+ hours on the lake - Threw everything I could, keitech's on belly-weighteds, senkos (weighted & weightless, t-rig & wacky), dropshot robos, clone-frys, I was ready to throw the whole damn tackle box at the fish!

    I suppose there is a first time for everything...

    To be more accurate, the skunk seemed to be on me alone. It seems everyone else who was out yesterday did very well.

    It's wild to see all the (now-submerged) structure that was dry just a few weeks ago - right??

    I can't wait to see what Barrett looks like this year - it should be fantastic!

    Wait... on second thought, Barrett is totally going to suck. You shouldn't even bother buying tickets for the opener. In fact, if you do, you might as well give them to me. Because it's totally going to suck.

    That water is being shipped down from Olivenhain reservoir, after they sucked it out of Hodges. Therefore, the Hodges skunk has infected San V!
