Clear Lake is heating up

Well it’s been a while since I’ve posted anything as I’ve been busy rebuilding my house after a fire last March. I’ve been fishing as much as possible while rebuilding but now it’s done. I’m back in my house and on the water again. And the fishing is starting to heat up. I was out yesterday and caught somewhere around a dozen bass in the 3 to 6 pound range. No giant yet but they are coming. All solid fish. I have a trip tomorrow with clients that want to use minnows. Haven’t used them in a while but I hear the minnow bite is really good. If your ready for some end of the year bassin or looking to start the new year off right give me a call and let’s set up a trip soon! Merry Christmas!!

Clear Lake…Up and Down

Wow! Talking about some confused fish! The weather here has been anything but normal for this time of the year. Last week we had temps in the 80s and the fish were moving up to spawn, this week we have temps in the 60s and the water temp has dropped 6 to 8 degrees. Where did the fish go? Also the moon phase has been less than ideal so the fishing hasn’t been that great. All that being said I had a trip yesterday with a great couple and they managed to catch some really nice bass up to 6 pounds plus a 16 pound catfish.
This week we also started out Wednesday Nite Shoot Outs (WNS) and I caught a 6.9 pounder that got me second place. Torey won with a 7.92 pounder. The average bass was almost 6 pounds. Not bad for a confusing week! The forcast for the next couple weeks looks pretty stable so the bass will be back in the shallows in a couple days so if you up for some of the years best bassin call me!

Anglers Choice Tounament on Lake Berryessa

Saturday at Lake Berryessa my partner and I had a really good day. Everybody was catching fish but we found something that no one else figured out. The key was a little different locatation and a different lure also. I can’t say what the lure was because my partner would kill me for letting that out right now. However I’ll be glad to show you if you want to take a trip to Berryessa soon. Just call me and let’s plan it.
On Sunday the wind blew extremely hard so we were concerned that we couldn’t get to our fish and that the area old be blown out. We decided to take a chance and it paid off, we won the tournament with 18.5 pounds which was 10 pounds off our mark on Saturday with perfect conditions. Both Berryessa and Clear Lake are kicking our some great bass right now so it’s time to get up northern Cali and get in on some of the years best bassin!

Lake Berryessa

I got a chance to fish Lake Berryessa yesterday with a friend from Napa. It was good to get away from Clear Lake for a day. The fishing wasn’t great but the weather played a role, as it was really windy so we limited to where we could fish. The cold north wind and high pressure are never the best fishing conditions. We did manage to catch a few good fish though. We caught small mouth up to 4 pounds and large mouth to 6 pounds. Tomorrow I’ll be back on Clear Lake and looking for some big large mouth bass. It’s time for the big girls to start staging. So if you are ready for some early season bassin and you’re looking for a guide that can get you on them give me a call and let’s set up a trip.

Early Season Bassin

Well the Ranger boat is back home and was in the water twice last week. First I went out by myself just to have some fun fishing. It took a while to find some fish but finally found a pattern that resulted in several bass in the 4 to 6 pound range. No big bass but still some good ones. The hot lure of the day was a Lucky Craft LV 500.
