Rain, Rain Go…

Well I would like to say we have had enough rain but that’s not the case! We need a lot more rain to get Clear Lake back up to were it needs to be. The fishing is still good even though the lake is low but more water would be great. The bass are starting to look at the bank and that means big fish in our short futures! There is a big tournament here this weekend but I will be at Lake Berryessa on Sunday taking out a couple teenagers for the high school tourney there. It should be a lot of fun as Berryessa is turning on really good right now. Next week I’ll be busy on Clear Lake with a couple trips so I should have a better report soon. My calendar, as well as most of the guides here is starting to fill fast as this is the busiest time of the year…also the best time to catch a real trophy bass so call soon to book your trip of a lifetime….


Crazy Weather…Confused Bass

Last weekend I was at Lake Shasta for the Wild West Bass Trail WWBT tournament. We came up .23 of a pound short of a check. Our weight was 12.77 and 13.0 was the last check at 39th place in a 195 team tournament. Lake Shasta is a beautiful lake with some awesome fishing. After the tourney my partner and I decided to stay another day and we sacked the spotted bass yesterday. We had 17+ pounds which is what it took to win the day before. Our best fish was a 4.9 pound spot. I guess that’s fishing! Now back at Clear Lake and Lake Berryessa for some big fish. Hopefully the crazy weather hasn’t shut down the bite here!


Clear Lake is the Best Lake in the Country

That’s right, Clear Lake is the number one lake in the world right now!!! I have personally caught 8 fish over 10 pounds in the last 3 weeks with the best three weighing in at 11.54(in the Wild West Bass Trail tourney), 12 pounds 2 ounce, and 13 pounds 13 ounce. Also had a client last week catch a 10.2 pounder and 4 more over 8 pounds. These are not fish caught on minnow but lures. The better bass are being caught on lures with the bigger numbers of bass coming on minnows. I have also seen pictures of many many other bass over ten pounds in the last couple weeks. The best baits right now are rip baits, Lucky Craft LV500, A-rig, and swim baits. With the weather that’s coming this week the fish will be hitting the shores and spawning soon so if you are looking to get in on some of this prespawn fishing you better call ASAP!!! If bed fishing is your thing, then call me and let’s get a date set before my calendar fills.


Awesome Week on Clear Lake

This has been an incredible week. I have caught a 13 pound 13 ounce bass and a 12.2 pounder plus 3 more over 10 pounds. I’ve had a client, Randy catch a 10.2 pounder and several more over 8 pounds. His goal was to catch his personal best, a bass over 7 pounds…easily surpassed! Catching a 10 pound bass was on his bucket list…Checked that one off!!! Last year Clear Lake was ranked number 3 in the country…well it’s better this year. Has to be number one. What other lake can produce 3 fish over 11 pounds in a tournament and 8 over 10 pounds. Then turn around and have a tourney with 6 more over 10 the following week? I have personally caught 9 fish over 10 pounds this month with 2 of them coming in one tournament. It was the Wild West Bass Trail tournament which I caught a 11.54 pounder that was the second big fish of the tourney. We had 40.19 pounds total that landed us in 2nd place behind a 41.5 pound bag. We still have a few more week of prespawn fishing then it’s time to look at them on beds… Bed fishing!! If you want to get in on some of the best fishing on the best big bass lake in the world give me a call and let’s get you on the calendar.


ABA Tournament at Clear Lake

Well I think it’s safe to say the fishing is good at Clear Lake now. Yesterday we fished an ABA tourney here and had 25.09 pounds and were somewhere in the middle of the 55 boat field . I also caught a 8.15 pounder that was the 5th or 6th big bass of the day. There were at least 8 teams that had 30 plus pounds. The big fish of the day was a giant 10.8 pounder caught by Brad Amodeo. Congrats Brad!
