Clear Lake
Clear Lake By I know about the die off and have seen some of it. Do not fear - there are many, many, bass still very much alive! My sore thumb nearly fell off lipping around 60+ bass for my clients. I lost my net last trip and forgot to get a new one. So Larry - a couple of guys were your clients, right? Not quite. A father and his 11 year old son and 9 year old daughter. Thank goodness for 21 ft Rangers!! I think this was their first official family bass trip. I told the bass to be on their best behavior, and they were. A 6 1/2 hour bite, unbelievable! it never slowed We used a variety of plastics, mostly Robo worms in 2 or 3 different colors. MM111 is coming on as fall approaches! Morning Dawn is still hot, along with the weather. We fished several areas mid-lake, working 5 to 15 feet of water. We also used Yamamoto Flappin' Hogs and some jigs w/Yamamoto trailers. I believed I worked harder on this trip then any in memory - someone had a bass on all the time with their triple hookup even - the whole family had one on except the wife - and she wasn't there!! I figured I'd net dad's first since he had the money - LOL! I've seen this happen before - as the afternoon set in, the fish got bigger. Both kids got one near 4 lbs. The success of this trip was only possible because I didn't have to be on the trolling motor - no wind to speak of. I was free to net 24/7!! Mike Sperbeck and I fished the lake on Thursday afternoon and found good action also. We fished the Rattlesnake Arm and up to Soda Bay. Again, an amazing shallow bite in the wind, bass biting in the top 5 feet. Mostly jigs that trip. We caught over 50 in 5 hrs, up to 4 1/4 lbs. As I mentioned before on a previous post, no dinks any more, just good bass in the 2 to 4 lb range.
