It's a short 5 mile drive from the house so we were there in a flash after a coffee and donut stop, set up in the middle of the bridge which has been good in the past, and since the water level was up, the prospects were good.

Got through check-in with a "stocked today". Forgot this was a holiday weekend, this being Good Friday and all. Can you say "Combat Fishing"?
I think the entire population of Sacramento, Stockton, and Modesto was there. The only good thing was one of the best fishing places (a dock) was empty just waiting for us. So I set up one rod with rainbow Power Bait and Yuki set one up with a meal worm. On the other rods we started throwing lure after lure after lure with no success while people around us caught fish after fish.
I finally went to one of the guys I saw pull a couple in and asked him what he was using. It was a gray colored Crappie jig. Of course, all my Crappie jigs were at home in the garage. I did have a gray colored Power Worm and a jig head, but they wouldn't touch it.
So, back to the title "Yuki And I Figured Out The Problem". Since I haven't caught a fish since January 28th, I must be cursed. I blame my lack of concentration on the contractor that destroyed the kitchen. That has to be the answer.
Maybe next time I should take my Crappie jigs.
