We've been catching energetic white bass, a few hybrids, some small stripers (released), and some gorgeous crappie.

Caught a 5 pound hybrid on 8lb test. That was fun. I'm going to try a "fish en papillote" recipe on those fillets.

They are biting here. Are they biting there?

where by the river? what the heck is a 'hybrid' ?? something with three eyes that escaped from Mr. Burns' pond ??

I saw the fishing boats out on the water, but didn't get the binoculars to see if they were having any luck..sometimes there's so much fish out there 5 different kinds of birds flock by the hundreds to feed on them, with the dolphins doing their bubble dance thing (to heard the fish) it can be quite a spectacle! ..something to do with the dense growth of kelp in this area, due to rocks rolling down the mountains, I kid you not, into the ocean at just the right depth for the kelp to anchor..

There are sauger (like walleye) in the river. Sometime rookies that don't recognize them will try to "lip" them. Mistake. They have sharp teeth. Very tasty fish though.

What we call a hybrid is a cross between a white bass and a striper. They get big and fight well. To me they taste much better than a striper.

I would imagine getting a good seafood dinner in your neighborhood is not a problem.

You haven't been fishing yet? What are you thinking? It's spring break! Oh, wait a minute. It's spring break. Young men have other, more interesting things to think about. The girls are schooling right now.
