    Report: Lots o bites and about 10 to 15 ish each day 1-3#. Could not ind the big ish. Weather ranges rom calm and sunny to windy with drizzle and hit everything in between. Fish seemed to be holding on hard structure. Rock banks with tulies mixed in and tulies with wood mixed in. Could not get ish on pure rock banks or pure tulie banks (except at irst light). I only tried 1 to 9 eet deep, hard to break Delta habits. Had some good ish under docks on zipper worms. Nothing on rogs and I was bummed about it.
    City: Brentwood

    Tips: Colors or plastics did not seem to matter much, caught ish on every color I used. PB&J, Brown/orange, Rythm and Blues, and some others. White buzz bait at irst light. Brown and Orange jigs/trailers.

    Report: Fished two day club tourney with CVBC last weekend. the wind last week really messed up the bite,buuuuuut, some quality ish were caught by a ew .(not me) On Sat. the winner caught most o his 22+ lbs, w/a luke in the Lakeport Key's. On Sunday he cranked a deep diving crank bait at theSouth end,in the deeper water. He ended up with over 40 lbs. Not bad!Actually, the top three had good weight, over 30 lbs. There are sight ish that were starting to move back up. There should bean excellant lip bite this weekend. Brown/brown jigs, green lizards, Baby Bass lukes. Our new prospective member Tommy P, led our tourney on Sat, with 25 lbs. and a 10 lb kicker. Not bad orhis irst tourney.But he ished with me on Sun. and only boated one keeper.(I swear I didn't backseat him, hee hee.) I kinda wish I was goin back up again this week. Good luck to the WON.Tips Fish will be shallow,please put em back alive.

    Report: Fished clearlake rom the 8th to the 10th because o abnormal weather conditions I stayed in the lakeport-Rodman area the whole trip.Thursday I only ished a ew hours in the aternoon butmanaged to get my limit split-shoting in small very protected dock/launch ramp areas ....Friday was better or weather but the ish were out o the shallows in the morning so I caught them on crawcolored cranks and slow rolled white blades with dbl. gold willowlea blades as the day wore on I lipped brn/brn up by rodman or about 6 ish and the end o the day brought on a worm bite not inthe shallows but in the transition areas I got one just shy o 8 lbs. then it slowed at 5:30 I put 2 more in the boat on cranks and called it a day. Saturday was another story no worm ish 5 rip ish"clown pattern" and 15 odd lip ish or the end o my "vacation on spawning clearlake ish".Tips The coming weekend is going to be killer in this ishermans opinion ...Purple plastics,Whiteblades,rippin,lippin,cranks.....it will be outstanding because these ish have been putting this o or a long long time keep a tight line (Rip)

    Report: Club had a two day tourney. Best baits were spinnerbaits in and aroundtules and also on wood in the north end o the lake. Some ish were also caughton shad lukes and rip baits. Most o the ish were 2-8' deep and were chasingthe reaction baits right up to the boat so be prepared when you retrieve or ashort line hit at the boat. Not much to talk about about with plastics or jigs -it was slow or this as everyone was tossing reaction.Tips Slow retrieve with the spinnerbait. Fish near deeper water close byspawning areas. Fronts seem to be coming through every couple o days so theseish are moving - gotta ind them when the weather changes.
