"I just noticed that this fish looks like it was hit by a fish-eating bird when it was younger and survived. Quite a scar it's got."

"Way to go Bob! What a Bluegill! How was fishing overall?  It was over 100 degrees today. Pretty hot to be on the water after 10 AM.  You sure don't need to wear waders in that warm water!"

Hi Mr. Gaines... My name is Rob...

I fish Perris every chance I get... but haven't tubed it in a while since Bernasconni has been closed until very recently.

I've admired your catches at Lake Perris, you obviously have applied due dilliegence.

You are obviously fishing the timber which means lost tackle presumambly. I am curious whether you use a sink tip or not? or a floating line and lots of patience.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.
