I'm good. I wish I could say I miss Colorado, but... I miss a few people, a few places. But overall I like it out here.
Spent a little time last fall salmon fishing, the returns were terrible. I fished tidewater areas in a couple bays, very few fish ran due to the low flows and hot water. I have not been after steelhead once. Not really interested in glorified mrt's at this juncture. I reserve the right to change my mind at any time.
Actually have not been spending nearly as many days on the water the last couple years. This is due to a range of factors, (sharing a car with my wife, trying to get my business going, etc.) but the bass fishing out here is very good compared to Colorado. I don't have a home lake yet, as I keep going someplace new almost every time I go. So many natural lakes out here, plus rivers and reservoirs. Oh, and the Pacific. That too. I enjoy the **** out of surf perch fishing/eating.
You mean I can't filet, cook, and eat that? Hella nice paint man. Once day when I settle down the rods, I want to get into building some of my own baits, I hope they come out a half as good looking as this.
