Report: rented a boat and started at the island. Threw a 8" swimbait, made 10 casts before boating a 5# lmb. Continued to fish the island before heading for bass cove. Spotted 2 bald eagles on the way and fished bass cove for 2 hours. Lots of vegetation and algae with lots of bass fry. Missed a 3-4 lber but Bass Cove had a lot of activity: boils and fish jumping.

Tips: Chabot is a tough lake, get there early!

Report: Caught a hard fighting 4.5 lber on a 6" black worm. Fish was in 12 feet of water.No beds spotted. Next four to six weeks should be fun.

Tips: Try different presentations to catch Chabot bass. Today an aggressive lift and drop retrieve worked.
