I went fishing with my buddies Gabe and Hector
We went out to Sherman Island out in the California Delta
We didn't catch any keepers But we caught a bunch on throw back stripers
We got out to a spot at around 7:00
When we got out to the spot we noticed smoke coming up from all along the levy. Apperently smeone was out there the night before and they thought they had put out the fire before they left, but the wind had blown hot embers onto the side of the levy. SO gabe and I proceeded to grab what ever we could find to put water in and began to douse the embers.... Well after about a Half hour we were able to get all the embers out....
But we did grab a couple of the burning peices of wood and place it in the fire pit. after a little while we were able to have a fire...LOL
After about an hour the Rio Vista Fire Department showed up and out out the fire...LOL
apperently no fires are allowed on the levys...LOL
But they told us just not to put the Beer on the fire... Because thats alcohol abuse...LOL... Gotta love firemen
Well after all that action we sat back down and relaxed....
Gabe was the first to catch something....
A rubber band
I was the next to catch something.... And it was actually a fish...LOL
To bad it was a throw back....
Still small stripers are fun to hook
Gabe then began to catch all the fish for the rest of the day
He caught a total of 7 fish but seems how they were all too small to keep here are his two biggest.... the largest one was 12"
We still had fun none the less. We spent most of the day sitting back, joking around, and watching the Wind Surfers
Around 5:00 we decided to callit a day and head home...
But before we headed home I of course got some shots of the Truck
All in all it was a fun day outside
And like I always say....
The worst day fish'n is still better then the best day work'n
