High North Wind Slow Clear Lake Bite

We have had supper high winds at Clear Lake this week and the bass here don’t like cold north wind! Even with the wind Clear Lake is still better than most. I had clients catch fish up to 9 pounds and I caught a 9.5 pounder. They are still eating rip and jerk baits, Lucky Craft LV500 and other lipless crank baits, Little Creepers Trash Fish and other swim baits including glide baits. Lake Berryessa is also kicking out some giant bass like the 14 pounder caught by a team in the American Bass Ass. tournament Saturday. Back at Clear Lake the water temp is climbing to 65 in the day so the bite will change from prespawn to spawning bass really soon. So if you like looking at bed fish get ready it almost here!

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!!

Hawgs(big bass) are Brawling at Clear Lake

I haven’t been out in the last two days but a couple of friends have sent me pictures of their catch and it looks like I missed a couple great days on the water. I saw pictures of a 43 pound 5 bass sack and a 38 pounds sack. Mean while I just got a German short hair pointer so I have been on puppy duty! Tomorrow I’m taking Remington(my pup) to Lake Berryessa to get ready for the 4th Berryessa Bass Trail tournament which is Sunday 2/21. The bite on Clear Lake is still good with Lucky Craft LV500 lipless crank baits, Pointer 128 rip baits, and A-Rig. Also some fish are starting to eat jigs and swimbaits. Next week the weather is going to be awesome again so if you are itching to get on some of the best bass of the year give me a call and let’s do it!

Windy Wednesday Night

Wednesday evening was one of the windiest night I have ever seen on Clearlake. The fishing during the day was pretty good as my clients caught around 12 bass up to 5.5 pounds. Still not much of a top water bite even early in the morning but the crank bait bite is still good. They caught fish on lipless crank baits (Luckycraft LV500), deep crank baits and jigs. Most of the fish came from 8 to 15 feet. My wife fished the Wednesdat Nite Shootout with me and she caught a small 2.5 pound bass while I caught a 4.5 pounder that was good enough for second place. Mr. Kevin Hall caught the biggest bass of the night that weighed 4.9 pounds…that’s quiet a bit off of our normal wieght for the WNS. Fall is closing in and the fishing is still awesome now so it’s time to plan that fishing trip when the weather is comfortable and the fishing is at its best!!!

Big Bass are Moving Shallow

The nice weather is warming the water and the bass are starting to move to the shore. Clear Lake is 2 feet higher than last year and there will be some good spawning areas this year that were dry last year. This week I had 2 guide trips and both were awesome. Both trips had fish caught up to 7 pounds plus a 16 pound catfish and. 2.8 pound crappie. We caught fish on Lucky Craft LV500, Jackel Squadminnow, Senkos, drop shot, swim baits and minnows. I got a chance to go out alone once and caught a 9.1, a 8 and a 6.5 pound bass. Two were caught on glide baits and one came on a Senko. Now is the time to call and schedule your trip while there are still a few days left this spring.

The Bite is on at Clear Lake

The past week has been really good on Clear Lake. Saturday my partner and I had 35+ pounds for our five best bass with a total of somewhere around 30 fish caught. Most of those fish were caught on a rip bait. Sunday in the tournament we only had 25 pounds and need 35 to win. That day our rip bite didn’t work so we had to change plans and go to other baits. Our best fish was 8.15 pounds and was caught on a swim bait. I had two guide trips this week and both resulted in great catches of up to 30 fish each day. The best fish of the two trips was caught by Franz and weighed 8 pounds. Most of those bass were caught on shallow crank baits, rip baits and live minnows. I fished alone on Wednesday and it was super foggy in the morning and the bite was slow, but after noon the fog cleared and the fishing was awesome. I caught several fish up to 6 pounds with Luckycraft LV 500, Stacyee, and ended the day with a 9.85 pond largemouth. Obviously the bite is getting better so if you are ready for some early spring action on Clear Lake or Lake Berryessa give me a call.

Well if you’re like me you are getting the itch so give me a call and let’s book your trip.
