Traba Triumphs on Clear Lake 8/23 and 8/24/19

Jacob Traba (the 2018 KBF Clear Lake Champion) backs it up with another victory this year. What’s even more impressive is that he was victorious in 2 tournaments on Clear Lake simultaneously. The Yak-A-Bass Chris Laird Memorial Tournament was being held at the same time on the same body of water so he decided to enter both tournaments (both were 2 day events).

Day 1 started a little rough with his first fish knocking his phone in the water while he was trying to capture a picture. Thankfully, he was able to find another angler who let him borrow a camera so he could get back in the game.

He found 2 good spots during pre-fish and decided to start in Rodman Slough to get 5 and then move on to his next stop. The fishing in Rodman was good enough to keep him there for both days. His primary tactics were punching and frogging. He reported that the thicker, cheesier mats were holding the better fish. He said that the last 2 hours of each tournament day is when the fishing was best. His weapons of choice were the Missile Baits D-Bomb in Green Pumpkin and the River2Sea BullyWa2.

Up next for Traba is the FLW Costa Event on the California Delta. He will be fishing as a co-angler. Traba has had great success on the big boat trail to include the 2018 FLW National Co-Angler title.
