Some Disappointment at the Classic
Most of the damage ive ever done to fish, came as a result of "hooking" the fish. c&r is numbers game at best, but still worth the effort, nothings ever prefect.

Have you ever done the Ilsanjo boogie
When I started tubing 20 years ago, and my brother and others started coming along,and being competitive by nature (as I'm sure most of you are) I found we would end up racing ourselves around the water, playing leap frog, trying to get to the new water first, this made for a lot of tension and took a lot of the fun out of the day. So i came up with a solution in the form of a game. "The ilsanjo Boogie" (that's where i was when i came up with the idea). It goes like this. When fishing in smaller groups of 2 to 4 or so fish together one behind the other, the man in front stays in front until he catches a fish, at which time he goes to the back and every one else moves up. However if while fishing from behind a man catches a fish, He gets to come to the front, making a 2 fish swing possible, you win by catching more fish from that trail position. The end result is you get to fish together, the fishing slows down,(in good way) and you can still have a reel fun competition. There are a couple more rules that have come up over the years, like at the back of a cove, you cant turn around and fish the opposite shore until the leader does. And sometimes we play if you get snagged and cant retrieve your lure, you must give up your spot ( this lets the guy in the back be more aggressive than the one in front, nothing to loose you see). Any way that's the just of it. If you've come up with a system like this on your own then sorry to bore you, but if not give it try, it can be a lot of fun.

Ilsanjo Update
I think I agree with new guy Jake, the lake is going to survive this. Its good to here your catching healthy fish Jake. But we may have a chance to make it better. Toad your in contact with Mike Landry from Bass right? He called me today from the dam, and it sounds like there might yet be some help with "Habitat Enhancement" . Any way that ball is rolling and we should see were it goes.Oh yea that is catch and release huh Jake?


Keep there heads up.

hey guys thought id jump in and say hi ive been up to sanjo twice this summer just to look and i dont think its going to get as low as i thought it would back in april thats good and bad good because the fish might just make it to the rain bad because it makes it hard to put any more pressure on the state hard to show the media a dry lake if theres no dry lake i had a nice year fishing new water so thats good been to whites, clearlake, sonoma, and others i do want to thank you guys for all your help this spring

ilsanjo disaster update
Just got off the phone with an assistant to State Senator Carol Migden.
In response to a letter I sent them and the P.D. story they have been looking into
this thing. The lady I spoke with indicated that State Parks were basically giving her
run around, so she then called Fish & Game, who is now looking into this with an eye toward habitat restoration if necessary. Not sure what happens next... But the senators
office has invited me to call them anytime and promised to keep me informed of any developments. keep your fingers crossed and
Keep there heads up.

Thanks guys for the kind words
hey Doug its miles but i go by mike some call me duck and a few call me cooter im not real found of that one but ive been called worse and all of you can call me what you like your all on the right side my feelings wont be hurt.
now both the P.D. and KPIX have said they will go back up with me in late august or september.
with that in mind im now going on a letter a week campaign 1 each for mary pass,dan monahan (thats the guy who was blaming global warming, thats manna from heaven right there) and louis nastro, who is the assistant to the state parks commission.
he can be reached at LNastro@parks.ca.gov
my approach for now is to let these folks know that when i speak to the media again id love to be able to say how the state really stepped up to help fix this thing maybe they ll see this for the smart play it would be, if not in september we go to war.

im going to try to make your october meeting so i can meet some of you and shake a few hands and maybe talk some fishing for a change. keep there heads up
