Is getting a little better day by day, not as fast as I expected due to the up and down weather but the water temp is up to 62 * and the big fish are starting to show up. The Won Bass Team tourney at Russo’s Marina yesterday took 30+ pounds to win and the winners had a bass almost 12 pounds! I have heard about a few other big fish being caught this last week up to 14 pounds, so the big ones are biting you just have to put in some time and have a little luck.
I was out yesterday (Saturday) by myself. The morning started off good with 7 fish from 2-3 pounds with in the 1st 30 minutes then I went the next 2 hours without a bite. I just kept moving around covering water until I got a bit, then slowed down and worked the area and started picking up some nice fish. I ended up catching 20 bass including two over 7 pounds and three in the 5 pound range! They came on Bobby D’s Chatter baits, Jigs and Senko’s in 3’-5’ of water.
Things are starting to happen on the Delta. The next few weeks will be the best of the year. If your planning a trip, now is the time.
