    that your shit back there is just as f'd up as our shit out here!
    And it was prolly one of your ancestors that introduced the goddamn Striped Bass into CA!

    For those of you just getting started in the thrill of striper fishing-a few facts from the Department of Fish and Game: Two small plants of striped bass from the East Coast were made in California. The first release of 132 small fish was made near Martinez in 1879 and in 1882 an additional 300 were released in lower Suisun Bay. Within 10 years a commercial fishery had developed and did well until it was closed in 1935 in an effort to build up the sport fishery.
    Amazingly enough - the Striped Bass and Salmon co-existed for 150 years (NoH8!) until the state started pumping water down south at speeds.

    Out here on Sherman Island, we are spending taxpayer money  to MOVE! the scour pond (where the levee broke in '68) inland! DWR has decided that the scour pond is habitat. So we need to fill the scour pond created in '68 and create a NEW scour pond because the old scour pond is too close to the levee and it represents a hazard to the integrity of the levee.

    I think ya'll ought to just send those damn clams out here. We're already one of the most invaded estuaries in the world. What's one more invasive species? Are they better with garlic and butter or hot sauce and lemon?

    if a habitat is flooded, the improvement for target fishes increases by an infinite percentage...because a habitat suitability index that is even a tiny fraction of 1 is still infinitely higher than zero, which is the suitability of dry land to fishes.

      Don't give Jerry Brown, John Laird, or DFW Director Chuck Bonham any ideas! LOL.
