Rising water

Last week the bass moved up and were starting to make their beds but the weather this week has pushed them back out. This week we caught fish in the staging area again which is much easier  for most clients than bed fishing.  The baits that were most successful were Lucky Craft LV500s, trash fish swim baits, the A-Rig, rip baits, big swim baits, and of course live minnows.  The best news is that the lake has come up about 6 inches already and should rise a little more.  Once the weather stabilizes and it starts to warm up again the bass will be back on the shore and bed fishing will be the way to catch the big girls again.  So if you are looking to hit the shores of Clearlake in search of that giant bass call me and let’s get it done!


Two Ten Pound Bass in One Week

I guess it’s safe to say the fishing is great at Clear Lake now. I had three trips this week that were awesome. Saturday Angela caught a 10 pound largemouth bass and then Thursday Mark caught a 10 pound pig. Both fish were caught on minnows but Mark also caught fish on the A rig, jigs, Senkos, rip baits, and big swim baits. Beside these two giants, a lot more fish were caught up 7.5 pounds. Wednesday I had Ramon and Manny with me again, but the east wind blew extremely hard making it really tough to find a place calm enough to fish. They did manage to catch about ten bass up to 5 pounds, just no big ones. Well if you are ready for some of the best bass fishing on the planet give me a call and let’s book your guide trip ASAP!


Great Bass Fishing in August!

Well August is gone and now it’s time for fall transition. In August I caught a 8.45, 7.08, 9.64 and a10.02. Not bad for August. These fish were all caught after dark. The best way to beat the heat in the summer is fish at night. Big worms, senkos, crank baits, swim bait and jigs all work well at night. Today I had a couple 6 pounders and a 8 pounder. Good start to September. Now lets see what I can do this weekend in the Champion Owners Tournament. Looking forward to a good time catch big bass. Call me if you want in on the action!


Weather is cooling, the water is clearing, and the Bass fishing is getting good at Clear Lake.


Clear Lake Fishing

The Angler’s Choice Clear Lake night tournament on 8/27/11 was won by Robert Thornton and Kris Sisto, they caught their Bass on top water bait. I caught a lot of Bass weighing up to 4.5 pounds on Frogs and Spooks. Clearlake has the best Bass Fishing! Will be fishing tomorrow night and hope the big ones are biting!

The current Clear Lake record for a LARGE MOUTH BASS is 17.5 pounds, but that could be broken with “your” next cast.
