not much fishing right now the ice is not quite thick enough yet, should be good in a week to drive onto the lakes. just started musky fishing this summer and all i can say is what a rush!!!! if you ever get a chance to fish for them don't pass it up. not sure either if cal. has muskies i know Colorado does but they are small there only get up to 30 to 35 inches

thanks for the welcome. i got involved in this actually by hearing someone on the radio talking about making money cleaning trash out of foreclosed homes, and i thought if this guy can do it why not me. so i started "attention to detail property services" and now i'm making contacts with all the realtor's in my area to see if i can get this business off the ground. so far it's been alot of cold calling,many many no's and occasionally a good lead here and there
