      Report: ishing at the picnic area to the let where "no wind has gone beore" and near shore I had a 5-6lber hit my Ratl Trap 3 times but they were just hits not bites. Fish are just mad at my bait so they hit it.

      Report: I started out this morning at 8:30, launching my kickboat rom the boat launch. I trolled around the lake or trout or an hour or so and then went towards the back end o the lake seeking bass. I only managed one bass, 5.2 lbs, on a 8" rainbow trout Yodo ished around poison oak. Ater ishing or bass or another two hours without a another hit, I went back to trout trolling. The water was a little more stained towards the back end, getting clearer at the dam, with at least 8' visibility.
      City: San Jose

      Tips: The bass appeared to be spawned out. I you can get out there on a sunny day, try jigs or lukes up shallow.

      Report: Robert.
      2.5 to 3.5 inch Green pumpin/light brown tubes. Use a craw scent. find rock piles, slowly work the tube down the side. Use just enough weight to feel the bottom, and use light line (6-8 lb). If the wind picks up throw jerk baits. Good luck.

      Report: I am just trying to make sure that the facts were right. I love to fish trinity but i have a feeling that it is going to be a while before anyone actually pulls out a record smallmouth out of there. Unless they keep dumping the water out of it for the salmon. Only if the fish and game knew how to manage the wild game here in california then they wouldnt have this so called crisis to save the salmon. They really need to learn how to manage there big game animals, fish, and there money. Because it is crap that our license fees keep going up and it all seems to go to the stupid government.

      Report: Dear Mr. Mode,
      Dear Mr. Mode,
      I read your response on Western Bass and I was deeply disturbed by
      what you said. Now, I have many years experiance in dealing with people
      who have anger management problems. I feel you are a text book case.
      You should immediately seek professional treatment before the problem
      reaches a crisis stage. If you have any questions on where to seek this
      help, please feel free to email and I will send you a list of Doctors
      in your area. This will remain confidential. Thank you very much for
      taking the time to read this.

      Keep in touch,
      Thomas
