Went on a solo trip to Berryessa today and got a limit ranging from 15-21”.
Launched out of Capell Cove about 6:30, rods in the water about 7. Started around the southern point on the big island using Kokanee Cut Plugs. First fish was a 17” small mouth bass, followed by a 15” trout. Then I couldn’t get a bite and I switched to a chrome Cripplure on one rod and a speedy shiner on another. By 9am I had 3 trout in the boat (fish 2 and 3 bit the Cripplure).
I then switched both rods to a chrome Cripplure and after an hour got 1 more fish.... then it shut down. I gave myself until 11 then I was going to leave, but, as usual, come 11AM, I still wanted to keep going for that last fish.... sooo.... I put on a couple Speedy Shiners and trolled back towards Capell Cove. Finally, at 11:50, out in the middle of the lake, near the big arm/cove (that goes towards Markley), I got bit on the Red/Copper speedy shiner.
Depth was between 45-60ft OTW.

Well done. That copper and red or copper and blaze orange are always good.

Nice day,,, and you got home before the traffic makes it hard to back the boat into the driveway on that busy street. Water looks like glass.
