Great tides produce 13 and 11 pounders - in the 1st hours of Yamamoto event

BETHEL ISLAND, Calif - Glass slick water coupled with a perfect falling tide, produced some unbelievable bass at the 10th annual Yamamoto Big Bass event being held this weekend on the California delta out of Russo’s Marina.

In hour number one, Mark Casey bolted out of the gate early, posting a massive 10.83 pound largemouth he caught on a Yamamoto Senko bait to secure that hour’s 1st chair big fish money and $500 in cash.


Mark Casey came out of the gate in hour one, with this 11 pound beauty!

But delta veteran Dan Fonte, blew up the 3rd hour, and via the “punching” technique, nearly tilted the scales with that hour’s big fish… a monster bass weighing just shy of 13 pounds!

Dan also earned $500 cash for that massive fish, and now leads the race for the coveted Andy “Cooch” Cuccia Memorial Big Bass Award that will be presented to the angler with the overall big fish.

With the tides being virtually the same for the 2nd day of competition, we are sure to see a lot more fish being caught and even more anglers taking home hourly big fish checks!

REMEMBER, If you couldn’t fish today…no worries, you can always register for the 2nd day of tomorrows event, beginning 4am at Russo’s Marina where at the end of the day, we will crown a NEW Yamamoto Big Bass Champion!

See you there!
