Decided to hit Contra Loma Reservoir today. Landed 4, missed 1 and lost 1. Big one was 7.82 lbs!!!! The others were 4.51, 2.27 and 0.61 lbs. I caught the biggest on my @luckycraftusa #Gunfish117 in American Shad using my @dobynsrods Fury FR705CB and my @abugarcia_fishing #Revo #Ike @mikeiaconelli reel. It was a great night and was more than excited. I'm sure the entire reservoir heard me! The other 3 were caught on @strikekinglurecompany #Ragetail in #Deltacraw. The small one was on Dobyns Fury FR734C rod with and Abu Garcia Revo SX 4gen reel. The other 2 were caught punching using a Dobyns FR765 Flip rod and an Abu Garcia Revo 3gen reel. #fishing #largemouthbass #largemouth #punching #topwater #texasrig #goingike #contralomareservoir @spyoptic @tacklewarehouse

I'd love to know when I did that. Glad I found it and have a new tether ordered from @atlasbrace. At least the brace did its job at some point, just not exactly sure when that was. I guess that's a lesson in checking ALL your gear after a crash to make sure it's in good condition. #atlasbrace #ibrokeit #notsurehow #crashhappens

Welding went a lot better yesterday. Finally started to get the hang of the vertical welds. I had a pass that I was told would probably pass a certification test, but I haven't been able to do that consistently, so I'm holding off. I also had a pass that looked good at first but had worm hole porosity; I'll have to get that figured out. I'm getting closer though. #welding #arcwelding

Went to @nitrocircus last night. It was absolutely insane! So many great tricks, such a fantastic show. I was glad to see that nobody got injured. #nitrocircus #fmx #bmx #skateboard

The newest piece to my hockey jersey collection. Pretty excited about this one, been looking at it for a while now. Yes, it's pro stock and brand new, just isn't one of the Adidas jerseys, it's still Reebok. I'm going to rock this jersey on Saturday when I play. #hockey #jersey #prostock #detroit #redwings #collection #icehockey #NHL

Took my nephew Braxton fishing today for his upcoming birthday. Caught this guy, he's only just over half a pound. The fish looks a lot bigger than it really is. The 2nd pic is of Braxton with the fish, you get a better idea of the size of it. The other pics are from last night at the delta. The big fish broke the split ring. I should have listened to @tacticalbassin and replaced those immediately. Luckily I didn't lose the fish. #fishing #cadelta #uvasreservoir #largemouthbass #stripedbass #crankbait #topwater #nephew #hapoybirthday

Had a great time at Whiskey Slough today! Landed 6, lost 3 and missed about a bakers dozen. Every fish landed was on top water. I was rocking the @luckycraftusa #Gunfish in chrome and one that chartreuse shad. It was awesome but could have been even better! Til next time I guess! #fishing #fishingproblems #stripedbass #luckycraft #cadelta #abugarcia #dobynsfury @abugarcia_fishing @dobynsrods #topwater

A beautiful morning on the delta. Caught 2 in the morning, took off for a while and then went back in the evening. I landed a 3rd and solidified what was a good day. #largemouthbass #cadelta #fishing #wackyrig #spinnerbait

Had a very successful day today fishing! Not much action, caught a very small striped bass, but changed up the lure and landed this beauty!!! As you can see, I'm more than stoked!! I'm pretty sure the entire delta could hear me celebrate. @spyoptic @lucasoilproducts @dobynsrods @abugarcia_fishing @tacklewarehouse #fishing #largemouthbass #buzzbait #cadelta #goingike #seehappy

I had another successful post work outing today. I landed 2 stripers. That's 4 fish in a row on the same lure. The 2nd guy was going for it and ended with all 3 barbs from the treble hook I. It's mouth. Bad luck struck again when I accidentally stepped on my rod and snapped it. That's what a warranty is for. #bass #cadelta #stripedbass #fishing #fishingproblems #whiskyslough #whopperplopper

Throwing down some practice welds at work today. Those were all vertical welds and i managed to keep it from dripping down. It's still a work in progress but I'm getting there. Hopefully I'll be ready to go for my certification soon #welding #practice #verticalwelds #arcwelding #myjobisawesome

Had some fun fishing yesterday. Caught a small striped bass. He decided to get revenge and hook me back (pic 2). Pretty funny. After that, i hooked my other rods while casting and flung it out into the water. Luckily, my lure was still hooked on to it so i just had to reel it back in. #fishing #bass #stripedbass #striper #cadelta #fishingproblems #imadork

I took 2 of my nephews fishing today. Unfortunately, no fish we're caught. It was a fun time though. Now, it's time for a nap. #fishing #nephews

First day of hands-on welding. It's a work in progress, but I'm sure I'll get there. Welding is something I've wanted to learn for a number of years. I love my new career, it gives me lots of opportunities to do things I haven't done before. #learningtoweld #welding #horizontalweld #arcwelding

I had a good day out there this afternoon. Went for a quick session after work. I got smoked yesterday. Donated 4 jigs and 2 crank baits without anything to show for it. I wasn't out for more than 10-15 minutes and I landed this guy. Not very big, but I'll take it. Got it on a @berkleyfishing #Havoc #Pitboss #Perfection on a @vmchooks 2/0 #flipping #hook. First time ever trying to flip, I've always been a crank and rip baits kind of guy. Glad it worked out!! #fishing #largemouthbass #cadelta #whiskyslough #vmchooks #berkleyhavoc

Went back out today after work again and hit up the same spot. Just like before, I got some action wacky rigging a light brown senko but nothing solid enough to set a hook on. Changed it up to a roboworm and landed a small largemouth bass. I didn't have my phone, so no pic. It really wasn't impressive anyway. In the 2nd pic you can see the rods and reels I brought. Shimano Clarus rods with @abugarcia_fishing gen 3 and a gen 4 #revo SX. The spinning rod is a @dobynsrods #Fury paired with a Wright and mcgill Skeet Reese carbon fiber reel. That's the one that got the fish today. I left my spot after a snake decided to chill by where I was. #fishing #rods #reels #abugarcia #shimano #dobyns #fury #largwmouth #senko #snake #cadelta #whiskyslough
