    Report: Visalia Bass had a tournament at Lake Kaweah on Saturday and 48 boats competed. Fishing was pretty good and most teams produced limits. The winning weight was an incredible 23lbs+ with second place weighing in a limit of over 16lbs. Both of those teams had huge kicker fish to go along with an otherwise solid stringer. An 7-8lb limit was middle of the road. Fish were literally caught all over the lake. The lake is at nearly maximum capacity and patience will produce fair numbers of bass, which can be found shallow.

    Tips: Fish aggressively early in the morning and then slow down and fish shaded structure for your best chance to land a quality bass later in the day.
