Here's Capt. Tricia and one of her crews from last week. Famed watercolor artist Les McDonald, [2nd from rt,] and his Quail Unlimited bunch enjoyed a busy day on the flats. They caught them on everything from various colored tails to topwaters to those darned old Gulps. It didn't seem to matter...

The previous afternoon Tricia walked them into a great trout bite. Despite a "brisk" Laguna breeze, they quickly had all of their fish including some great ones....plus one anomaly of a trout that was 26.5 inches long but weighed an incredible 8 lbs on the Boga Grip.

We enjoyed a great meal with them this evening at the Mansfield Club. Both the food and the company was first class.
