Clear Lake Largemouth bass caught on a spinnerbait

My photo albums probably contain more pictures of fishing trips and fish caught over the years than of any other subject. Our fishing outings have included trips to the ocean, Folsom Lake, Clear Lake, Berryessa, Lake Oroville, the Delta, Lake Natoma, and plenty of other bodies of water, large and small, in Northern California. We’ve fished from the shore and from a number of different boats ranging from expensive bass boats to inflatable float tubes. The Big Guy has had a lot of different of fishing partners, both human and animal. He’s taken each of our dogs fishing with him — but Buster was the one dog who completely shared the Big Guy’s fishing obsession.
