Over the years my honey hole on Suisun Bay has produced more sturgeon than any other honey hole. Often times one cannot fish Suisun Bay due to the wind and waves, but when it’s calm it is my favorite spot. And so when the forecast predicted “light winds” or winds to 10 MPH, I loaded up the boat and headed for Brannan Island. Brannan is near Rio Vista, and is an hour’s cruise upriver from Suisun Bay. I always choose to cruise down river for an hour to get there rather than to fight the Bay Area traffic to get to a closer launch ramp.
Sunset on Suisun Bay. I love the solitude of my favorite sturgeon hole; not a single boat passed within a mile of me the entire 19 hours I fished there. Talk about getting away from it all!
