I am sitting at the Spokane airport on the way back to the bay area as I write this. I have been working up here since October. It has really cut into my fishing time! I cant wait to get back on the water as the new tournament season starts. I will be going to the ISE show tomorrow to check out the new Dobyns rods! Can’t wait to get my hands on some of those. They are high end rods. Nothing like whats on the rack at your local tackle shop. Gary has totally redesigned the rods with all of the best materials. They are super sensitive and super light! I also am looking forward to seeing and getting out with some of the new injected Lunker Punkers! These are the bomb! The old Punkers were great, but the new ones are plastic with rattles in them to call up those big bass and stripers from near and far! And on those choppy days…..Better hold on!
I won’t be able to get out on the river this weekend, but next weekend the ABA Delta teams start up. Like I said, I haven’t got much time on the water as of late, but the last couple of trips produced 20+ pound bags so I am optimistic for a good day.
I’ll post a report of the ISE on Monday on my way back up to Washington.
Good fishing, Mike
