Re: Bass taken from one area unlikely to return after being released

I was having this same conversation on the boat over the weekend. at berryessa we would never fish the narrows unless it was really tough. and with the increased number of tournaments now on the lake you have just as good a chance of breaking 20 lbs in there as you do the main lake.

best knot for fluorocarbon

what's everyone using for tying lures with fluorocarbon line. I grew up with the Palomar but have notice when I break off a lure it looks like the knot failed and not the line. I tie it correctly and don't burn my line. I've heard of this happening and thinking it time for a change.

i remember as a kid a three pounder was average now you have to burn through 20 fish to get ten pounds a lot of days. even a few years ago most days I had at least one over 5. I find myself fishing from memory and I think it hurts me. but guys bring in solid sacks every tournament.

ash is on point. the east side is huge but once you start finding fish you will be surprised what they school up on out there. drop some way points and make an east side milk run. find where the creeks meet the trees or stumps is normally where I start. welcome to the lake, hope to see you out there
