It's All About The Timeline

I don't know about you, but when TV stations have beat a story to DEATH, they have to do something to keep it going, so they do a "timeline".

You, as a watcher of "what ever station you watch" (with the exception of Yuki who doesn't own a TV) know of what I speak.

So I thought, since I fished once again at North Shore Camanche yesterday I'd just do a timeline of what occurred and beat it to death. By the way, if you hadn't noticed, I have my computer back, better than ever. The wife re-installed Windows 10 and I only lost one thing. That was the total wins on a Solitaire game called Adelaide. I wanted to get to 1000 wins with no losses, but it tanked at 990 wins with no losses. Guess I'll just have to start over.

On to fishing:

  • 8:00 am arrived at the lake. 
  • 8:10 am had two rods in the water, one with rainbow Power Bait and the other with orange Power Eggs.
  • 8:15 am sucked down my cup of Starbucks Pike Place coffee. 
  • 8:45 am reeled in the rod with the orange Power Eggs. 
  • 8:50 am started casting Kastmasters on my little Okuma with 2# line. 
  • 9:15 am threw out the orange Power Eggs again and parked my butt in the red Coleman Camping chair. Think I need a new chair, this one is starting to fall apart. 
  • 10:00 am reeled in the orange Power Eggs and replaced it with rainbow Power Bait and a slathering (love that word) of Pro-Cure Anise flavor. I was desperate. 
  • 10:15 am reeled in the rod with rainbow Power Bait, re-baited and slathered some Pro-Cure Sweet Corn flavor on. Now I'm really desperate. 
  • 10:45 am reeled in the rod with the Anise flavor, reattached a #6 bait hook and put on three white fluorescent Power Eggs. 
  • You getting sick of this timeline thing yet??
  • Wasn't but a couple minutes and I had a fish one.      

Only fish of the day
I gave it to a couple guys next to me that drove all the way out there from the Bay Area to take a shot at Camanche. It weighted in at 1 lb. 10 ozs. Pretty much standard size.

  • 11:00 am put out both rods with white fluorescent Power Eggs, but the one above must have been a fish of opportunity because nothing else came along. 
  • 11:30 am, packed up, drove home, and watched the SF Giants game. 

So, I hope I bored you (not really) with the whole timeline thing. Promise I won't do this again.

Getting close to our first trip of the summer in the Freedom Express. I don't know how I did it, but the trip is scheduled for Easter weekend. We leave Thursday the 13th and come home on Easter Sunday the 16th. Don't forget (all of you that have kids, grand-kids, etc) to spoil them with candy and dyed eggs.

Oh, I might mention that we are going to Half Moon Bay State Beach right on the ocean. I plan to try a little ocean fishing since I've not dipped a rod in the ocean for many, many years. I've got another cool camping item to show you, but you'll have to wait until we get back.

Stay tuned.  


  1. I'm convinced that trout died of boredom. ;)By the way, when you go ocean fishing, watch out for those sharks Mark!

  2. I will be looking forward to your post following your Mini-Vacation. Hope the ocean treats you a little better than Camanche................Be safe.

  3. The media guys bore the crap out of me, but you have a way with words that keep my interest.
    Are you up for CNN.

  4. Mark
    Refer back to the list for future use on your next trip---sick of cable news, same old stuff!!! Hope you guys have a great trip--thanks for sharing
