Well, its been a few months since l have been on my blog. A lot has happened since my last blog in August. Shelia and I have down sized from 10 acres to a small trailer on the California Delta, and we love it!
It has been a big adjustment for me; shut down my construction business, sold all my horses and the one thing a cowboy should never sale, his saddle. But, I knew if the dream of being on the water was ever going to happen, I would need to make the permanent change from Cowboy to Captain. I needed to sell my horse and saddle.
Now that we have made the move, though it is small quarters, we are so excited! We are able to walk out to the dock, board our boat and explore a 1000 miles of waterways all the way to San Francisco Bay, the Golden Gate and be on!
Right now the Salmon are running up the Delta. Every day we see fishermen catching them. I can’t wait until we are finally unpacked and settled into our new place, so I can get out on the water and start catching some big fish.
Here on the Delta there are several Big Game fish to choose from, like Striped Bass, Black Bass, Big Month Bass and Sturgeon. There are also plenty of Perch, Crappie and Channel Cat fish.
Plus, duck season is in full swing right now. Each morning I watch Duck Hunters launch their camouflaged boats with there dogs.
Can you believe this? I’m in Paradise!
But, if hunting & fishing is not your cup of tea, how about a sunset cruise, or a wine tasting cruise, or better yet, an all day cruise to San Francisco Bay!
Next spring we are hoping to start our own charter business, so let us know which cruise you would like to take and we will reserve your spot!
Till then, I will be writing about life on the Delta!
Live Your Dream,
