Whatever last Sat. was hit Bart. I know lots of people said fishing was slow or at least nursery school at the tourney this weekend but for those who didn't hear.

We got there about 3pm on Sat. and not to toot my own horn but we had 5 keepers in the boat by 5. BF only about 2.5lbs but not hard to catch fish. We were fishing yellow cliffs area DS in 15-20 ft. with a few crank fish and a c-rigged lizzzard fish thrown in.

Camped that night saw a nice buzz tail while looking for wood about 10ft from my sleeping bag:eek:. She was at least 4ft and had at least 10 rattles on her. She never made a sound even when we were phucking with it with a stick. My buddy lifted her off the ground with a long branch and she never made a sound. We passed out and my buddy left 2 poles out with blue gills on them... in the mourning he only had one pole with no blue gills on it.

Fished the mourning for an hour or so then had to get back for the game. Caught 5,... 3 keepers and 2lb bf all DS.

Final highlight on the way out, big old lazy desert tortise crossing the road. Pretty cool haven't seen one of those in the wild since I was a kid.

tight lines ya'll.

Nice report thanks. A little secret for your buddy the next time is to strap that pole to anything you can. If it's a surf pole around the base of the reel, a level wind has eyelits so we use a rope with a clip to attach to the reel. Flip the clicker on and wait for the hummmmm.

Or just don't get stupidly drunk and pass out 30ft from your poles.

It is also against game and fish regulations to leave line / lines in the water unattended....something to think about. Good report though and glad you had a good time.

Next time he does that just half hitch it around his thumb. If a flathead grabs ahold of it you will know:)
