Try a Boom Boom Swimbait to effectively conquer the grassa Trout fishing is still good at the east side, north side of lake or from a boat with nightcrawlers, Power Eggs, or mice tails. Try fishing at Channel Point, Loma Island or from a boat with nightcrawlers or chicken liver.. Try fishing for Crappie or Bluegill with jigs or worms at the boat ramp area, Loma Island or Channel Point area.

  • Report: Black Friday Delta report
    Unread postby Kyle46N » Fri Nov 24, 2017 4:29 pm

    The kids and I were on the water early and bee lined to the Old River area. We spent most of our time in those canals near Holland's Riverside Marina. Thanks to Mr Lassagne's recent report on his FB page of throwing cranks, we busted out the red square bills. I've read plenty about the necessity of red on the Delta, but combined with my lack of confidence in cranking, I hadn't thrown the red cranks up until today. Well, I learned something today. The fish like red cranks.... :D We didn't catch anything bigger than 3 lbs, and most were a pound or two, but it was still fun. The bass were crushing it. I didn't miss a single fish. Caught somewhere around 30 in about 5 hours of fishing. My little boy and girl also were able to get their first crank fish. We didn't do anything special...just burned them along grasslines and right down the pipe of some of the smaller channels ( 8 ft or less) I could find. The fish closer to 3 lbs would come up off the bottom of the smaller channels to smack the baits. It was a good day for crankbait confidence.

  • Report: NOTE:Reposted from Cooch's Fishing Page

    To all the faithful followers, friends and family...It is with a heavier heart than you will ever know that I must let you know that Andy "Cooch" Cuccia has passed away. It was very sudden and very unexpected. I don't mean for this to seem impersonal but he had so many friends and acquaintances I did not know how else to reach you all. I write this as a way to let you all know, and more so as a way to help me wrap my head around this. Each of you had a part of his heart and you all shared his passion for the Delta and those big pigs! Keep those memories with you, always.
    Keep a tight line.
    Love, Jenny

    He was always a big part of WesternBass, hosting the Pro-Teen, the first cover of the magazine. He will be greatly missed.

    Coincidentally, WB had shown off Cooch and his nine pounder he caught this week, in today's Delta report. We hope everyone remembers him like this ... happy with the big one.

    Best wishes and prayers to the family.

    Water Temp: 71-76

    Water Clarity: Muddy (0-2 foot visibility)

    Report: Started the morning fishing points, outgoing tide, witnessed plenty of shad jumping just about everywhere, threw crank baits and produced a couple of keeper sized fish but amazingly when the fish saw the boat they for some reason came off the hook like they really didn't commit to taking it.
    Had fish come off of creature baits also, almost was like a spawning season bite, most fish caught were 12 1/2 ", weighed 1 that was thirteen "
    Also received a lot of bites but when setting the hook there was Nada. caught a small punch fish also.

    Good luck
