Delta 02-FEB-2016-Global Warming has it’s advantage

I fished south and east Feb 7 for a big fat zilch. Bass guys were doing ok.  No pics, runs hits or errors.

I was able to squeeze in much needed water time on the Delta on Feb 15 after a week working a trade show in Anaheim.

Dangerous Dirigibles and I rolled over the Bethel Island bridge at sunrise.IMG_3382

We headed northeast working likely spots on the San Joaquin. Incoming tide.  All quiet in the usual spots. Further east we found birds, bait and a few lunging stripers working east of the Hwy 12 bridge. We commenced to pull on a few  schoolies  on swimbaits dragged right on the bottom. Spoon worked as well.

We did a lot of scouting down as far as Mildreds. Tons of bass boats up tight to the tulies but we wanted stripers.

I stopped on some of the holes draining out of Mandeville and worked a largemouth bite

Water temps ranged from 54-58 and clarity was still poor in most places. I will let the full moon pass before checking the delta again.
