Rising Water

The latest rains have brought Clear Lake up almost 3 feet from its lowest point. And it looks like we should get another 2+ inches before the end of the week. On top of that the fish are eating pretty good. Almost 26 pounds was needed in the American Bass tournament held here this weekend for the win. There were several bass over 6 pounds caught mostly on jigs in the Henderson area. Also some good fish have been caught on swimbaits, Lucky Craft Vl500s, and spoons. Fishing will be geting better and better as we near spring. It’s time for the big bass to start moving into the staging areas so they will be much eazier to catch. If you are like me and this rain is making you stir crazy, give me a call and let’s go fishing! Also don’t forget the ISE starts Thursday. You can find me at the Dobyns Rod booth on Saturday and Sunday.

Rising Water

After the 5 inches of rain Clearlake has risin about 2.5 feet. That not what we need but it is a great start. It is raining again and the forecast calls for possibly another 2 inches of rain over the next couple days. That could bring the lake up another 6 to 12 inches. As far as the bite, I haven’t fishing Clearlake since the rain and have heard any reports. I did fish Berryessa Saturday and Sunday. We had a Berryessa Bass Tournament there and we took second place with 17.91 pounds. The first place had 18.10 and edges us out by less than a quarter of a pound. We caught fish there on the A rig, Lucky Craft LV, Senko, and the Huddleston swim bait. The biggest fish came on the Hudd and weighed 7.5 pounds.

Rising water

Last week the bass moved up and were starting to make their beds but the weather this week has pushed them back out. This week we caught fish in the staging area again which is much easier  for most clients than bed fishing.  The baits that were most successful were Lucky Craft LV500s, trash fish swim baits, the A-Rig, rip baits, big swim baits, and of course live minnows.  The best news is that the lake has come up about 6 inches already and should rise a little more.  Once the weather stabilizes and it starts to warm up again the bass will be back on the shore and bed fishing will be the way to catch the big girls again.  So if you are looking to hit the shores of Clearlake in search of that giant bass call me and let’s get it done!
