ment big steve (ntmama1) friday night outside of bombay by salton sea. we were gonna try fishing a area of the coachilla canal some people had told him about. what a bunch of BS'rs. they are fencing that whole section of canal off now. both sides. couldn't even get to the canal.
so we went to the east highland. let me regress a little.
i left early friday to fish a few small canals while waiting for him to get there. stopped at the true value hardware store in calipatria for goldfish. (brian i told you the wrong name.) fished the little canal outside of town i like and caught 5 channels within 1/2 hr. small though. from 3/4 -2 lbs. threw them all back as our mission was flatheads.
met with steve and decided to to change plans and ended up east of niland on the east highland. by 0100, i'cd had only one run, so we decided to hit the beds. left the poles in the water, but brought them into trucks with us to be safe. around 5:15, my pole goes off. jump out of truck and it stops. so i put it in pole holder and pour cup of luke warm coffee. line goes again and this time i could feel the fish. poles almost double and feels like one i've been waiting for. then,
slack. it threw the hook. as i was rebaiting, steve's goes off and he managed to pull in a channel about 6 lbs. that one is my breakfast tomorrow.
we tried a few more spots, then took him over to canal i caught them on friday. i caught 6 more the same size, and he caught one. we then split up and head our seperate ways home. i decided to stop one more time to fish since i had to pay for out of state license, and managed 2 small bass on crawlers.
now home and tired as heck.
see you all next friday at blythe.
