Bass Fishing Moves Into Fall Pattern

posted in: Reports | 0

(Clearlake Oaks) The weather is finally cooling down and the fall largemouth bite has started on Clear Lake, reported Dave Brabec of Clear Lake Outdoors.

“The water temperatures are now around 60 degrees,” he stated. “It was foggy and frozen this morning.”

Guys are catching bass on both the north and south ends of the lake. The A (Alabama) rig bite has started and you can catch fish on shallow and deep crankbaits, said Brabec.

“The LV 500 bite has been good and will continue to be through March,” he tipped. “The jig bite is slowing down. We just got a shipment of minnows and they are bigger than they have been; that bite is just starting to get good. The fall/winter is when big fish are caught here.”

Catfish action remains good, with anglers fishing mackerel, chicken livers and live jumbo minnows in deep water off Shag Rock, Konotyee and other areas..
