Fishing under the 101 bridge

9 posts in this topic

Stopped and tried to fish right under the 101 bridge. There is about 12-14 feet on both sides of the bridge. I fished the North side for about 30 minutes with a fathead on the bottom and no dice. If I remember correctly I should have tried south side I think it's a little deeper. No one else fishing but it appears to be a convenient spot to meet to get your drugs. While I was there I saw 3 cars come down there and meet with one guy in a silver honda. They would walk under the bridge for a couple of minutes and then they would go back to their cars. I am fishing! These people need to understand you cannot mess with my fishing. Mr. Drugdealer I was the guy that told you last night to get the #&*2 out of there. I was also the guy that called the police on you. You should have left when I told you to leave. I was the guy that waved to you while you were being searched. Enjoy the holiday season behind bars and never mess with my fishing!

Nice work Erik! I wish I could see the same action taken with some of the fish & game violators out there. I have called the TIP hotline a few times, but have never had the satisfaction of watching them get busted. It would be a good feeling. Vern

Yes Erik very nice work!
Yes Vern! I agree 100% Obviously all areas are important,but for me its especially the restricted section of the Miss up here. It just makes my blood boil to think of anyone keeping any of those protected smallies. If I ever see anyone keeping a slot fish I dont think I could control myself, I would have to personally hold them down untill the C.O arrived!

It sort of scares me to read your questions about the smallies and river up here that you have posted and then read your recipe post were you say
"fillet any broadbacked panfish-- rockbass, smallmouth whatever"
Do you actually eat smallmouth? If so what are you going to eat? the protected slot is 12 to 20 inches thats pretty much everything you are going to catch.

I didn't start fishing the rivers until after smallmouth season closed, so of course I didn't keep any. I am also aware of the slot. The recipe was about getting finicky little kids to eat freshwater fish.

Erikwells nice story, I think that I will forward it to the people who are saying fisherman don't contribute much to the enviroment and society.
Is the fishing around there still worth trying? I am thinking of trying it prior to going to the pond.

ALPHID,
The river is always worth a try this time of year. I have has a little success and would probably do much better if I was able to put in some more time. I have been unable to fish for long periods of time due to my wife starting her 9th month of pregnancy. Too much stuff to do before the birthdate. So I have been limited to 1 or two spots when I sneak out for an hour.
