My compadres today are photograph James Overstreet (right) and our driver Kent Brown. Kent is the popular host of an outdoor radio show here called Ultimate Bass Radio on KHTK. He's a native Californian with tons of experience fishing this area. In the photo Overstreet is mocking Brown saying "Hi" and waving to lots of people. "Riding with Brown is like being with the Mayor of the Delta!" said Overstreet.

Chris Zaldain told Bassmaster LIVE that it’s pretty much a waiting game early on the Delta, where anglers do their best to fill their livewell in wait for the witching hour. He said great numbers of bites aren’t a necessity, as you can have three fish averaging around three pounds and catch two big girls like Zaldain did on Day 1.
