Clearlake, Bass, Robo Worms

4 pound Clearlake bass on a Robo Worm

It was boat pick up day for me again this Saturday so my son Cole and I jumped in the truck and headed to Clearlake. After a few other errands we launched the boat out of Lucerne around 12:30pm and headed to Kono Tayee area to see what we could get. I knew the drop shot bite would be going on so that’s the bait I handed to my son a Morning Dawn 4 in Robo Worm. His first cast was at the end of a dock, it landed him a   13 inch Clearlake giant, fun days are just for that “FUN”. I decided to throw the River2Sea Bumbershoot (A-Rig) with rig walker baits, this has become a staple for me in the late winter and early spring. I spent the first hour throwing that bait in all the depths I could find and never got a bite. then I switched to the Huddleston 68 special I finished the day altering between that and the Drop Shot. I never caught a swimbait fish I did get a couple hits but no hook ups. We fished the highway 20 side of the lake for our whole day mainly focusing on docks and rock piles. The Drop Shot in MM111 and Morning Dawn both 4 Inch were the bass catchers today as we landed 4 quality bass up to the 4LBS mark and around twenty bass altogether. It was a really fun day and right now the lake is fishing well, go have some fun. There was an ABA Clearlake region Tournament there that was won with 29 pounds no idea what they were throwing or where but there were tons of boats staked up in the Rodman slough area.

See you on the water,

Big Ed
