First We Got Cut Off, Then We Crashed The Boat!

From bad to worse! Tim and Matt had no idea what was coming when they launched the boat on the CA Delta! The day just kept going down hill. It started with lost fish, then they got cut off, next they lost a GIANT striped bass, rebounded by catching a huge bird, and then when it couldn't get any worse, they crashed!

Have you ever had one of "those" days? We just couldn't seem to do anything right! Luckily we survived to tell the tale! When it was all said and done, Matt was able to turn the day around by heading to another lake and catching a bunch of bass on soft jerkbaits.

Bad days happen to all of us. Don't let it get you down! Keep your chin up, stay focused, and continue to fish until you get out of the rut. The only difference between great anglers and the rest of us is persistence!

We did manage to catch a few fish along the way. Below is a break down of the gear we were using to successfully catch fish.
