Fishing CA Delta June 27

Postby AKBASSFISHING » Thu Jun 28, 2018 9:17 am

California Delta 6/27/2018
Water Temp 73 - 76
Visibility 2 – 3 feet
Wind 5 – 18 mph

Wasn’t summer just here? Man it was chilly.

Put in at 6 in the morning. Met up with a buddy and his god son. They wanted numbers, so that’s what we did.

On our first stop, the tide was ripping through the area. After a little while and no fish, it was clear the fish didn’t want to be in the direct current. Seeing this, we made a small adjustment and cranked down some side channels. We boated a good number of 10 – 15 inch bass.

By mid-morning, they seemed like they were tuckered out from catching “monsters” haha. So we made another move to fish some shallow weed flats. The tide was still moving out, which left only about a foot of water above the weeds. Even though the sun was pretty high, I decided there was enough wind to create a good chop on the water. I tied on a whopper plopper for the god son, and he went to work. After a couple of casts, a mule came rocketing out of the water. It looked like something from shark week. He fought the beast for a little, but about halfway to the boat, she came unbuttoned after she jumped. That was the biggest bass he had hooked, but was a little bummed that she came off. That’s fishing for ya though, can’t catch all the big ones. We followed this pattern for a short while, but the wind laided down for a bit. With the chop gone, the plopper bite died off. We switched to Senkos paired with Tsuyoi Weedless Wacky Hooks and proceeded to put on a clinic. Fish were flying left and right! Overall, a good time.

By noon, we looked for some more water, but stumbled upon a fellow boater in distress. His motor had no power after hitting an obstruction. We towed him for a while, and he told us to cut him loose after getting him most of the way there. A great guy, but unfortunate that had to happen to him.

Owen, if you're reading this, hope you made it back safe and your motor is ok.

After our little adventure, we cranked more walls and the bass were more than willing to eat. In the more protected areas, we found the Senko bite very fruitful and the god son even managed his personal best at just over 2.5 pounds. He was very happy.

By late afternoon, the wind was howling and we called it a day. The ride back was a fun experience to say the least.

Offshore weedlines with slight current held large amounts of fish. That said, heavy current or dead water was void of life.

If you can't get bit on anything, go to a craw crankbait. You'll at least have a pull-down.

Great post, very similar to what we found on the 24th with the exception of a great topwater fish :shock:

It sounds like you had an awesome outing and banked some good Delta Karma

Depends on what size Senko you are throwing. For 5 inch Senko's, I like a 2/0. For the 6 and 7 inch Senkos' a 3/0 is perfect. You can jump up to a 4/0 for the 7 inch Senko, but I find that to be overkill.
