Berryessa Bass Trail Tournament

Saturday was the BBT tournament at Clear Lake and there were 4 teams that caught over 30 pounds for 5 fish. I had a guide trip that day and wanted to fish down south but with a 130 team tournament going out of Redbud Park I choose to go north. We had a pretty good day catching around 30 Bass and a few crappie. Then yesterday I fished the Berryessa Bass Trail tournament with less boat and stayed down south with much better results. I caught the tournament big Bass which was 9.33 pounds and we had 27.5 pounds for 5. Our Fish were caught on crank baits, lipless cranks, chatter baits, and worms. The off limits for the up coming New Jen tournament have been lifted so that opens up several days in my calendar over the next couple weeks if anyone wants to fish while the fishing is hot! Hit me up!


Clear Lake = Quality and Quantity

Clear Lake is kicking out both quality and quantity right now. Thirty fish days are the norm and bass from 5 to 8 pounds are regular. Yesterday I had 3 guys that had never bass fished before and each of them caught 6 or more fish up to 6.5 pounds. They caught fish on crank baits mostly as they are pretty easy to use for beginners. I have also been catching bass on jigs, brush hogs, chatter baits, and Lucky Craft LV 500 lipless crank baits. The night bite is good also and that a good way to beat the heat of Northern California. If you like fishing jigs or crank baits or if you want to learn to use LV 500 and chatter baits give me a call and let’s book your late summer trip!


Back on Track

Well after being down because of a blown lower unit then a blown power head I have changed to a Mercury 250 Pro XS. I got the boat back just in time to fish the WON BASS OPEN here on Clear Lake but with no prefish time I didn’t do very well. Now I’m back to fishing and I have figured out the lake again. I know what I did wrong and what I should have done to win the tournament. Fishing is good and the key lures are jigs, chatter baits, square bill crank baits, and top water lures. So if you are ready to get out and catch some of these big bass give me a call and let’s get your fish on!
