This trip began when I met Ray, Chad, and Jeff at the hotel in Anderson.  Soon we were at the river, and the Vicki Ann was launched.  We fished hard all day, but only 1 bright salmon of 30 pounds was caught on this trip.  Everyone had a great time on the river, and I'm hoping to have this threesome back real soon!

This trip began when I met Ryan and Andrew in Anderson.  We were soon on our way to the river.  After launching the Vicki Ann, we headed up river, and were soon fishing.  We fished all day, with a few hits, and only 2 fish made it to the boat, and the waiting Jacuzzi.  These bright salmon weighed in at 10 and 26 pounds.  This was a fun trip for all, and I hope to see these 2 back again!

This trip began when I met Rick, Larry, and Bob at the river.  We fished hard all day, with a couple of hits, but only 1 bright shiny salmon came to the boat.  A pretty Sac River King of about 13 pounds.  Everyone had a good time on the river, and I'm looking forward to fishing with this group again!

This trip began when I met Tony and Art at the hotel in Anderson.  We soon headed to the river, and launched the Vicki Ann.  Up the river we went.  With the river conditions very clear, and extremely low, I knew the bite would be tough, but we did manage to land 1 bright Sacramento King, of Approx. 18 pounds.  We all had fun fishing on the Sac River, and I hope to see them both back again soon!

Click to enlarge Click to enlarge  Otto, Lawrence, and Bill are holding their catch of the day, from the beautiful Sac River!
This trip began when we met Lawrence, Otto, Bill, and Gary at the Hotel in Anderson.  We were soon on our way to the river for our 2-day adventure.  When we arrived, we slipped the Vicki Ann into the river, and headed to the first hole.  When all the lures were in the water, it wasn't 5 minutes before we had the first fish on, but it soon departed.  As we worked through 3 or 4 more holes, we decided to move back up river to another hole, and anchor up.  With all the lures back in, it was only a short while until the the cry of "Fish On" was heard!  Otto's rod had touched the water, and he was now fighting with the first fish of the day.  After seeing the fish for the first time, we threw the buoy over, and the chase was on!  After about 30 minutes, Otto boated a nice bright 50.6 pound Sacramento River King!  Going back to our hot spot, it wasn't too long before Lawrence's rod took a dive, and he was now battling another bright Sac River salmon.  With the battle won, Lawrence boated a beautiful 41.4 pound salmon!  Now with 2 Big salmon in the Jacuzzi, it was now Bill's turn.  As time passed, Bill hooked the last fish of the day, and he soon boated a Sac River King, of appox. 15 pounds!  As Gary didn't boat a fish today, he is anticipating a Big catch for tomorrow.  This was an Awesome day, and everyone is looking forward to the second day of this adventure!

This trip began when we met Bruce, Markus, Mike, and Jesse at the Hotel in Anderson, and we were soon off to the river.  We launched the Vicki Ann, and headed up river to the first hole.  We worked all our best holes, but nothing was hitting, so we tried a few different lures.  Even though, it was quite a while before we began to get some hits.  As later afternoon came around, Jesse hooked a nice 25 pound Sac River King.  With a couple of more hits, with fish on and off, our day was now ending.  This was a geat trip, with lots of fun and laughter, and I hope to see all these guys back next year!

This trip began when we met Lee, David, Teri, and Rob at the Hotel in Anderson.  We soon headed off to the river.  We launched the Vicki Ann, and headed to the first hole.  All through the day, we fished hard, and had several hits, with fish on, and fish off, but the fish won this day, and the Vicki Ann went home with an empty Jacuzzi.  This does not happen often, but even though it did today, this great group of guys stayed in high spirits throughout the day.  I hope to see them all back again next year, for some really "Good Catching" on the beautiful Sacramento River.

Click to enlarge Click to enlarge  JoAnne is holding a bright 11 pound King from the Sac River.
The second day of fishing with Jared, Natalia, Spence, and JoAnn was now beginning.  We were soon launching the Vicki Ann, and heading up river to the first hole.  As we made our first pass, with no hits, we moved down river to the next hole.  Minutes later, JoAnn hooked the first fish of the day.  A nice little 11 pound King found it's way to the Jacuzzi, in the Vicki Ann.  We fished hard the rest of the day, in search of another fish, but to no avail.  This was a great 2-day trip, with good people, and lots of laughter.  I can't wait to have them back fishing with me again next year!
