    Report: Fished Deep Cat area off the exposed long point seeking Grebes feeding on shad balls. Fished 15-25 ft. Strike King Sexy Spoon 5.5" through the bait with lift and flutter motion. Caught 2 bass 5pnd and 2 pnd bass with a "sway" back. Weird looking fish. Tried other areas, but Deep Cat was where they were and should have stayed there.

    Report: Fishing has been for me "really good" or "really slow" this last month. Normal jig and worm bite in the typical 10 to 40ft of water on deep structure. Fishing real slow. Best fish have been comming out of deep water to 60 feet on the shad using heavy flutter spoon. Fished the last 2 WON Casitas Region Tournaments by Rich Tauber. Great tournament Rich. Thank you. Really looking forward to the next few weeks when the fishing should improve. Take care.

    Tips: Been really tough but still manage to grind a few fish in the boat. Jigs/worm on the deep points and Spoon deep where the shad are. Been working for me.

    Report: Fished Friday on a colder glassy pre storm lake. Cold wind started up around noonish left water at 1:00.Started out at 8:00 with partner on water/area I knew from just days before in my boat. I got slowly dialed into his electronics and I promptly caught 2 of 5 fish I was looking at on a ledge in 30 feet on my spoon. I kept us in the area and am sure my partner missed a few being a newbie he did well by not dragging his spoon but keeping up with the ebb and flow by reeling up and starting another drop. He now understands that being as much as a few feet away from the structure ( wood in this case) and he's not going to get bit. We scoured this area a second time with other baits to no avail. As we ambled along I think I caught 2 more spoon fish at the same 30 foot range during the rest of our day. We worked other areas with similar methodology and wound up with zilch. Observed the grebes to be spread out and not on bait except in a few instances during the course of the day. Surgery was changed to Friday so I'll be out again hopefully before I get laid up one last time. We got ¼ inch of rain the day after we fished.

    Report: Wow....Nobody has been out on the water since since March.Well I'm no Rich Tauber bet here was my morning....

    I have been off the water since the first week of August due to health issues with two Major surgeries behind me and one more to go this Monday I finally felt I had enough energy to get the boat hooked up/launched and fish for maybe half a day.

    I got on the water at 8 and with one rod in hand went looking for the spoon bite. I caught a total of 9 fish on my BPS ¾ oz. tungsten spoon. 5 keepers with my best fish being a 4-5 pounder. My fish were on wood structure in 30 feet of water. I talked with another angler at the ramp and he had 3 fish on worms. Funny bite on the spoon. While rip'n it rhythmically up off the bottom I would catch the fish by stopping the spoon a foot off the bottom and let just dangle it in front of their faces and pow! They really got suckered into it cuz that spoon falls so damn fast they really have to want it to get it in their mouths....The smaller fish just inhaled it to their stomach as I deadsticked the branches and roots I was fishing and I had solid hook ups on all of the better fish. It might be that they wanted more of a flutter and that is why I had to stop and wait for them I will hope to find out a little more on this bite on this coming Friday when I will going out on a trip in my buddies boat. It's cold out and its going to be getting really cold in the coming days and weeks. Bitter cold is the best thing for a spoon bite so I hope to stay on fish for the foreseeable future. I am certain that The A-rig and some sort of jig and worm bite is on I just like to put fish in the boat as fast as I can drop my spoon back down and the Casitas fish were quite happy to give me a fun day on the water. If you don't think that the shad are haul'n ass around the lake try to keep up with a school of western grebes as they shove the schools of threadfine down the bank and you'll realize why the fish flip on and off as fast as they do. I was lucky on my first spot as the grebes had apparently been pushing bait around the spot all morning which led me to almost instantaneous hook ups which after my hiatus I was ill prepared for but more than willing to overcome my shocked feeling of (“ I'M BIT “ ) into more of a (“ I knew they'd be home” ) I fished shear walls for the most part but have to say that isolated wood at 30 feet worked out best for me versus the shear wall rocks at the same depth. You can just drive along looking at your meter looking for activity or or just fish spots that give the fish an opportunity at jumping those thread fin ( points and the edges of the cuts in the stone walls) Since I was just out on the water kind of dazed and feeling good about just having a rod in my hand again I just fished and noted the results. Good Luck to all and I hope to start posting my trips again as soon as I recover from my next surgery.

    Report: The first wave of bass have moved into shallow water and are set to spawn at Lake Casitas in Ventura California. With the full moon approaching on February 23 the bass at Lake Casitas have decided to make the move to shallow water and get set for the official beginning of the spring spawning season. We have been fishing 2-12 feet of water and concentrating on a drop shot and Senko. The water temperature is 60° and that seems to be enough to set off the first set of spawners off at Lake Casitas. This is 100% lure fishing. As most of you know this is absolutely the best time of the year to come and fish Lake Casitas if you're interested in catching a trophy bass. It is my belief that the first set of spawning bass always produce some of the largest fish of the season. This is all about quality not quantity. If you're interested in catching one of the largest fish of your lifetime this is the time to come the Lake Casitas in Southern California. We are starting every morning at 7am. I have half day trips that fish from 7am till 11am. I also have another half day trip that begins at 12 noon and fishes until 4pm in the afternoon. Once again we have all of your rods, reels, and tackle ready when you arrive. Just come as you are and we take care of all the rest. Lake Casitas is a wonderful place for a fishing charter as it is close to the Los Angeles area and is absolutely beautiful at this time of year. We have virtually perfect weather and little to no wind all throughout the spring season. You can also book a full-day eight hour Lake Casitas fishing guide trip with me and those start at 7am and return to the dock at 3pm. There is always bottled water, ice, and packaged snacks on board on all fishing trips. About the only thing that you need to bring is a big smile and a warm jacket. Of course we are open seven days a week and my new 21 foot Phoenix bass boat will be waiting at the dock when you arrive. For those of you that would like to have breakfast before you go out on your fishing guide trip at Lake Casitas, the Marina Café is open for breakfast at 6am. If you have any questions you can go to www.RichTauberFishing.com Of course you can always call me or text me on my cell phone at (818) 439-1154. Like I said this is a wonderful time to book a guided bass fishing trip at Lake Casitas.
    City: Camarillo

    Tips: Well here we go it's officially spring time. This is what it's all about. This is really what the sport was built on. The ability to go out and fish your bait in shallow water throughout the entire day and generate strikes on a variety of baits. The weather is absolutely fantastic at Lake Casitas, and the bass are up and accessible to almost all anglers. It's that time of year were having an expensive bass boat, or expensive set of depth finders is not a necessity. And with that being said without question the most popular fishing technique used at Lake Casitas during this time of year is the drop shot technique. As one of my guide clients told me at Lake Casitas the other day, it's really the equivalent of the Texas rigged plastic worm for the Western United States. Since most all of you that read my column all utilize the drop shot technique I thought I would give you a quick spring tune up with some pros pointers to help you this spring get the full potential out of your drop shot fishing. Let's start with the drop shot rod. My recommendation is a 6' 10" drop shot specific spinning rod. What I mean by this is choosing a spinning rod that is specific to the technique. Most all companies now make drop shot specific fishing rods. The reason that this is important is the tip on a drop shot rod is basically what we would call almost a triple fast taper. Meaning that the but section of the rod and midsection of the rod are fairly parabolic, yet the tip of the drop shot rod is very soft, much softer than any traditional spinning rod on the market. That's super soft tip is very important in the drop shot technique. Next you want a quality spinning reel and of course my personal choice is any of the top of the line Daiwa spinning reels in the 2500 size. When it comes to fishing line there are two ways to go. My personal choice is the smallest diameter braided line that you can find, and use that as your main line on your drop shot rig. My personal choice is Daiwa Samurai Braid. I feel it is without question the finest braided fishing line and you could ever use for this specific technique. I like the Samurai braid in 15 pound test line and I purchased it in the green color. This 15 pound braided line has the diameter of 2.5 pound test line. This braided line is noticeably thinner softer smoother and more flexible than ordinary braids. The fact that it has the diameter equivalent to 2.5 pound test line allows the braid to cut through the water easily with little to no resistance. It makes it incredibly effective when making a long cast or fishing in deep water. It's thin diameter allows you to have a much more direct feel with your plastic worm when you're fishing a drop shot. If you have not tried this braid I highly recommend it. I of course tie a fluorocarbon leader using a double Uni Knot to connect the braid to my fluorocarbon leader. I most always fish a six or 7 pound test line fluorocarbon leader with my drop shot rig. When you tie your Double Uni Knot you want to try to have your knot resting somewhere between this spinning reel and a very first stripping guide on your spinning reel. What I mean by this is once you have your drop shot weight and hook all rigged up on your line you would like to have your knot resting somewhere between your spinning reel and the very first stripping guide on your fishing rod. This way when you make your first cast the not is not buried in the line on your actual reel. The knot should be resting just outside the real and this will allow for much smoother casting. When I rig the drop shot onto the fluorocarbon leader I of course like to use the Palomar knot, and my hook of choice is a #4 Daiichi drop shot hook. They come in black nickel and in red and I like both colors equally well. I use of 3/16 ounce round Bakudan drop shot weight for almost all the drop shot fishing that I do. One of the most overlooked areas in drop shot fishing is the distance between the weight and the plastic worm. I feel like far too many anglers use way too long a leader with their drop shot rig. I'm a pretty big fan of a very short leader with the drop shot. For much of the year especially in the winter and early spring I like to use about a 5 inch leader between the weight and the hook. Once the summer season begins and vegetation begins to grow I will then switch to a bit longer leader. When it comes to plastic worms I really believe that it's difficult to choose anything other than a Robo Worm for western fishing. I feel like it's far and away the most productive plastic worm for this technique. I know their are parts of the country where other plastic worm's work very well with the drop shot, but on a day in and day out basis I really feel like the Robo Worm is very tough to beat when fishing with this technique. Spend a lot of time trying to find out absolutely the best color plastic worm on the body of water that you are fishing. The right color with the drop shot rig can be absolutely crucial to maximizing your success. Don't be shy, ask other anglers what plastic worm color they believe to be best when you go to the lake. If you hear the same color over and over again focus on that colored plastic worm on that particular body of water. If I had only one fishing rod to take to Lake Casitas during this time of year it would be without question a drop shot rod. I feel it's the most effective fishing technique you can use at Lake Casitas at this time of year. The biggest keys to this technique are fishing your plastic worm slow, keep it on the bottom, and experiment with different retrieves. Once again keep this bait on the bottom, don't play with your reel handle too often, just slowly work your bait with your rod tip and use your reel only to pick up slack line. If you feel anything different, set the hook, never get into a feeling contest, always believe it's of fish. Enjoy this special time of year and I hope this short refresher course on drop shot fishing will help you this spring season. If you would like to give this technique a try first hand you can call me at (818) 439-1154 or email me at the "Contact Rich Tauber" link at the top of the page.

    Report: Happy New Year. Just looked at old posts and realized I hav'nt posted anything since 2007. Well here goes. Started fishing at 9:30am. Water was ultra mirror glass all day with rain and sprinkles all day. Fish heavily suspended about 45 to 50 ft early. Moving shallower as the day progressed. Fished very slow drop shot with long casts 45deg to shore with boat in 60 feet. lost 2 fish, hit 3 times, and brought 4 in the boat. Biggest fish was 3.11 and smallest just under 2 lbs. Had a good pattern fishing very slow downhill around any deep rocky structure. Lake was muddy around deepcat/st.canyon/ santa ana/ wadeliegh area. Moved around alot around east shore points and Island points. Was out of the lake by 4pm. Beautiful day for fishing with only about 5 to 7 boats on the water.
    City: Camarillo

    Tips: Believe it or not I fished same beat up 6" oxblood robo all day. Practically a dead stick with 8# test. I swear the short bites were trout.

    Report: It's been a long hiatus for me from Casitas but my freezer is plugged with bluefin/dodo's and yellowtail. I got out sporadically this summer and found the fish less than enthusiastic about my idea of what should be working. I got out last weekend but was off the lake at 10:00 because of obligations. On this Saturdays tripas I made my way along my first stretch of water I came across some active meter marks and tried a number of baits until I caught the fish on a dropshot robo worm 4 inch in red crawler in 30 feet of water. I kept it up with only the worm in my hand for about 20 minutes when I noticed a fish scale on the tip of the treble hook on my ¾ oz. Chrome Hopkins shorty.It was the first bait I dropped on the meter mark that morning. I started driving about using my spoon and I had 4 fish when I left early. This Saturday I went fishing for the whole day. I brought it all but found that I did best by using my electronics to scan for action and then work over that area with the spoon. I had some initial tackle malfunctions that cost me but I sat down and changed out my reel to my green Curado with some fresh 10 pound maxima clear. Back to fishing. It boiled down to fishing super shear main lake banks anywhere from 30 to 50 feet with the spoon and a fresh #4 red Gamagatsu treble hook. I landed 13 fish but missed many opportunities as I slowly became more confident in presentation/water depth/location. While I did fish as much wood as I could find, it was not a determining factor in my catching fish. The shad where being pushed by the western grebes in a big circle all day long and the wind was blowing pretty stiff and cold with water temps at 68 which was down 2 degrees from the week before. The shad that I saw with my eyes in that open water were really, really small. I had thought that my BPS tungsten spoon because of it's smaller size would match the hatch better and get me more fish but the fish wanted the bait to be moved slowly sometimes just dangled and other times with some more flutter to it so the Hopkins was the bait that caught my fish. I foul hooked 3 fish this day and they were all dinks. I had a 21/2- to - 3lb. pound average on the fish. I caught 7 in one stretch of about 50 feet along the shore and caught 3 and dumped 2 on another spot. So it's not pie in the sky fish catching everywhere. You have to work for every fish by being ready for the bite and then be ready to pop a few in a few drops When my mind starts to wander to other baits I just started to focus more on my electronics. Great tool that HDS10-Lss1 on the trolling motor. I am starting my can it be ????3rd year using it and I am still constantly learning about my bite with it. Best investment I ever made. I am sure that there are other bites going on that the guys who followed the fish all this year are on but this worked for me right out of the gate so I will continue to refine it.I am positive that I am shutting off my fish by releasing them as fast as I can right on top of where I caught them but hey it's just fun fish'n!!!

    Report: Hot summer day. Fished dead horse with topwater, drop shot first thing, no takers. Set up near dam with Berkley Havoc blk/blu Skeet Pit Boss 3/4 bullet weight flipping into grass. Caught a 4 pounder using a 1-2 jigging. Fish hit perfectly after secong jig and hard too, set the hook immediately. My only one for the day, but a goody!
    City: Oxnard

    Tips: Watch a video of Chris Lane when he won the Bassmaster classic 2012 flipping the Ugly Otter and use that style, it worked for me. I hadn't fished in a while, but I wanted to put a recent report. Flippin' in the grass with a big sinker and creature.

    Report: Fished WON bass tourney yesterday caught a few nice bass on drop-shot, and busted a couple off, and also a 6 lb. trout as well. It was blowin out there all day and could hardly control the boat! All the bass we hooked up were on nice warm rocky points in 5-15 feet of water. The water started to murk up from the wind and it seemed the fish were all on warm rocky points.

    Report: After I put down the reaction baits at 9:00 I found a decent pick on the drop shot in the 12/15 foot range. I plunked off some three pounders but the water was to clear for a senko bite. I did however toss a senko into a tree and watch a 9 and a 7 pounder come right up to the branch I was totally snagged on. While they were trying to figure out how to eat my senko off of the branch...I reeled down broke off spun around grabbed my drop shot and flipped it into the same spot. Both fish go nose down and gone...gulp... I'm bit so it's off to the races with my 10/8 braid/flouro a #4 owner and a tungsten sinker....the rod is the dsr820s by Loomis with a Sedona reel. It was my go to rig all day but it is very light. I did some serious running around while trying to slow her down but once I cleared her from the tree she kept dig'n for.I switched rod angles and she came up and jumped in the middle of the oak tree and went down and under the branch she was on the wrong side of. At that point I let her tear off a mess o' line into the nearby depths and landed her a minute later. I ended my day at 4:00 and had 23 pounds thanks to the pig and a 5 pounder I wished up from nowhere at 2 o'clock.
    City: Ojai

    Tips: My best time was between noon and 2:00.. Keep it simple. 8 pound line or less. I wacky rig a flik shake 4.8 with a 4/5 inch tag from hook to my sinker. FISH SLOWLY...Everybody seemed in a hurry to not catch fish....The water cleared and It's tough now so slow and steady and a shake or two before pulling it towards you a bit. It was all about wood. Almost all my fish were on wood. We are off the full moon but the weather is going to get typically snotty for everyone this coming Saturday. I gotta work.

    Report: Tired of the zipped lips . The fish are spawning here. I took the week off of work and hit the lake 4 times.On the bet that the pre full moon March at Casitas would have a spawn of some type going on. My best day was Friday the 2nd. with four fish over 6 pounds and a bunch over four. It seems everybody and there cousin who is fishing the lake out in 40 feet of water with brown jigs with a big Texan for their trailer. I caught 80% of my best fish in two feet of water or less. I used a 5 inch senko wacky rigged with an owner weedless camo wacky hook in a size 1 on 10 pound power pro and 8 pound seagaur for a leader. Hot colors are green pumpkin black flake or faded watermelon purple flake or the laminate green pumpkin/watermelon. The fish are 1/3 back of the main arms and can be seen. They do not care if you are close to them but you must make a perfect cast to a very small strike zone.It helps if you can make the cast the first try but repeated casts get bit too. It can help to sometimes cast your bait on the bank and drag it into the water. You can dropshot a wacky jackall flik-shake 4.8 on #4 hook in 6 to 10 feet of water. Hot colors are watermelon candy and green pumpkin pepper....There is an A-rig bite but I will allow you to figure that out. I'm lucky my first guess on the color was right on but it took a few trips to figure out why I was catching fish and to find areas that better suited the application and approach.Very fun fishing for the next few weeks.

    Tips: I wouldn't discount those jig fish as they were probably the better bite first light. The Ojai weather is way up and down. 85 daytime 28 nighttime.Dress warm in layers. Bring good polaroids and if you stay shallow and pitching a senko you will get bit. I fished until 10 am on Friday before my first and biggest of the day bit. It had a big black crappies tail sticking out of her gullet and she still ate a senko.Just because a bed has no fish on it does not mean you won't get bit. The fact that I have located where the big fish are made me realize that I could pitch into water less than a foot deep and in doing so have a big unseen fish come from where ever and slam it. Once you catch 5 or 6 fish you will understand where the fish are and you will be able to go around the lake and wack'em in the same type of locations as your other fish. Catch a big one and let it go...;)

    Report: This report covers the last three weekends for me at Casitas. It should be noted it snowed down to lake level on the weekend of Feb. 26th-27th when the fish were in full swing for an early spawn. I fished all three weekends with the same partner who had been fishing in deep water with big jigs at Piru and could not wrap his head around the fact that Casitas fish had been spawning in Feb. until I showed him all of the beds.The water temps initially started at about 57morning /59 by the end of the day, This third week just prior to a whole lot of rain on Sunday water temps started at 60 and I saw 62 most of the day under overcast skies. The first trip after it had snowed we caught fish shallow but while there were beds everywhere it was evident that the main portion of the fish that had built those beds had pulled off leaving slim pick'ns up shallow. The second week we did much better but were still lacking in numbers using the same baits as the week before, We sampled the lake and caught fish every where we went but not bed fish. They were at the entrance to the backs of coves in 10-15. This past weekend 3/19 saw us fishing in the middle of a WON tournament with 24 boats in the field. There were fish actively spawning on this day and it was fun to watch and move on. I did my best at keeping my partner from molesting to many of the locked on fish. We never had anyone around us all day as we again sampled different areas and found the fish much more active. I had 4 in the boat in the first 10 minutes of our morning of the 19th when I put down a senko and used a ripbait on an outside point. The fish were farther offshore than I would have thought and liked a slow rip pause retrieve. Color: Ghost Tennessee shad Lucky craft 127Mr.These fish would have been culled by later efforts easily but I found there location to be the bigger mystery. We moved along on the trolling motor from the back of a long cove towards main lake and found bigger females on dropshot worms on the entrance to the coves. Color watermelon candy 4.8 worm rigged wacky. These fish were offshore on the outside of the secondary flooded brush about 15-20 feet. That bite evaporated as we got closer to the main lake. I moved the boat onto main lake structure around noon and caught nothing in 20 minutes on my best stuff so I quickly left that and went back to the back of a cove and worked my way out. We popped a bunch of fish on senkos from 1:00 until 3:30.... Color: green pumpkin black flake rigged wacky weedless fished on 8 pound/10 pound flouro dbl. Uni power pro. The water was ultra clear but the storms pounding the area right now could help us out from the 15-20 foot viability that we have now. The outlook for April is very good as the fish that pulled off the beds in March are going to supplement the fish that had an April time frame.
    City: Ojai

    Tips: The water is clear. Use polarized glasses and fish the offshore 12 foot deep wood and weed edges. The spawning activity is evident everywhere in the shallows so focus just off those beds...or of course you can go around catching buck bass off of beds instead of the better quality to be had just a few feet deeper at this time.

So I fan casted a drop shot and got two bass and I threw a Double Diamond swimbait on a jig and got about a 3 pounder.I made some long casts and I also threw some swimbaits but no lookers. I think with the last two days of warm weather they will be feeding better. Tight Lines to all Chief
