Bass Biting at Clear Lake

The Minn Kota Ultrex is mounted and it is awesome! I got to go out on Clear Lake a couple times over the last few days and while the bite isn’t great, it is much better than it has been. Each day we caught at least 15 bass with a big fish over 7 pounds each day. Lake Berryessa is also turning on. My partner and I caught around 25 bass in a tournament there weekend before last with the best 5 weighing almost 18 pounds. Februray can be a great month at both lakes so if you want some great prespawn fishing it’s time to book your trip!


Changing Gears

Well after a 8th place finish in the Wild West Bass Trail at Lake Oroville and a 3rd place finish at Lake Berryessa in the Berryessa Bass Tounament Trail, it’s good to be back home on Clear Lake! Now it’s time to get ready for the American Bass tournament here this Sunday. We have gotten quite a bit of rain this season but both Clear Lake and Berryessa need a lot more water!


Bed Fishing 101

If you like bed fishing now is the time to head to Clear Lake or Lake Berryessa. Both lakes are on the verge of exploding with bed fish. This past weekend my partner and I won an Anglers Choice tournament at Lake Berryessa and all our fish were on beds. The wind was blowing really hard but we found some protected water and there were lots of bass still on beds in the area. If you’ve never bed fished before or don’t know how, call me and I’ll put you on some of the best bed fishing of the year.


February, Rain, and Big Bass

Clear Lake water level is higher now than it ever got last year, and there is lots of rain on the way this week. The forecast is calling for 5 to 8 inches of rain which should add another couple feet of water to our unusually low lake. Februray and March are great months for big bass here and they are starting to show up. I have been out of the state for the last week so I haven’t been on the water but will be back tomorrow, rain or shine! Ihave have seen a couple photos of some big fish that were caught in the last few days and can’t wait to get out there and get some of them. The next couple weeks should be really good, especially aftrer the lake settles from the rains. If you are ready for some big bass action give me a call and let’s plan your trip before someone else gets your date!


Low Lake Level and Tough Bite!

Clear Lake is definitely low but there is still plenty of water here for some great fishing. However that is not the case, the fishing has been very slow for this time of the year. I believe this is in part because of the super abundance of bait fish. There is so much bait in the water that the bass just don’t have to move to eat. Over the past few weeks a good trip might yield five fish, but those are big fish. It’s time however for the bite to pick up and the crank bait bite should go off really soon. If you are interested in some of the best cranking of the year give me a call and let’s schelude you a trip in October.
