Clear Lake is on Fire

What a great weekend!!! Saturday, Konocti Vista Casino hosted the 3rd Wild West Bass Trail tournament of the season at Clear Lake. My partner and I finished second with 40.19 pounds. We had a 11.54 pound kicker plus a 10.05 pound toad!!! We caught fish on the A-Rig, Lucky Craft LV500, And a couple different rip baits. The biggest bass came on a rip bait. Lake Berryessa was a little tougher Sunday but we managed to put together 17.5 pounds. The fish there came on spinner baits, chatter baits, and shallow crank baits. At Clear Lake the fish will be moving onto their beds really soon but we still have a small window to catch these giant bass while they are in the prespawn stage. This week and next are booked so if you want to get on some of Clear Lake’s best fishing give me a call!!


Clear Lake is Turning On

Well it’s about time…Clear Lake is bringing to put out a few fish. I had two trips last week and both were successful. On Friday my clients manage to catch a dozen bass up to 6 pounds. The better fish were caught on the Lucky Craft LV500. They also caught fish on a BDS3 which is a square bill crank bait.
Well if you’re like me you are getting the itch so give me a call and let’s book your trip.


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.


Alabama Rig and Minnows

If you can handle casting the heavy Alabama Rig you can still catch several good bass a day on Clear Lake. Also the jig and crank bait bite is starting to pick up. And of course the minnow bite is still great. Recent rains have brought the lake level up some, but we still could use a little more water. You can check the current lake level in the lake info tab on the site. Scroll to the bottom of the page and click on the lake level link.
