Shelby Clements and his first 33" shaker sturgeon
Last weekend a club member caught 2 monster stripers... a 38 and a 36 pounder...Now that's a nice limit! He was using splits in 40' near the entrance to Pittsburg Marina.
Another club member and his guest scored a limit of 10-15 pounders out by Middleground on bullheads and splits.
Some of our Facebook fans have been reporting shakers by Sherman Island, a keeper by the green buoy and a respectable trolling limit near River's End Marina in Tracy!
A buddy of mine, Jim Millward ventured up into the Sierras to Union Valley Reservoir last weekend for some trout...he got a few small rainbows. He says it was still really cold but had a great time.
I was able to get out yesterday with my Uncle Shelby...we started out in a steady rain and headed over to the deep by Snag Island...the water was glass all day...a beautiful day...slow on the bite though. Although, Shelby was finally able to catch and release his first shaker sturgeon! 33" fork length caught on an eel / grass shrimp combo hors d'oeuvre ....giving him a good fight and keeping us on our toes the rest of the day!
Hope everyone is able to get out this weekend and hunt for some fish in between Easter egg hunts!
Several of us members were on the water this past weekend. A few were in 20-25' between the Middle Ground and Ryer and picked up some nice stripers in the 15 lb range on splits and bullheads. Others worked around Garnet Point and landed a limit on pile worms and grass shrimp. B&S Bait says a lot of fish are being taken on whole anchovies.
Yours truly was out Sunday afternoon soaking grass shrimp and eel in 40-45' on the line....got 3 shaker sturgeon. I plan on being out there on the stripers next weekend!
We're hearing that the striper fishing is picking up in the shallows of Grizzly Bay....They're hitting pile worms, blood worms, grass shrimp and cut bait. Anybody been out and done well in the past few days?

We had a little hiccup over the weekend when migrating OriginalSturgeonDerby.com to a new hosting service, but everything is now back up and 100% operational!
So let's hear some fish reports! And upload some pics and videos!
