(Clearlake) Larry Hemphill, fishing guide, reported decent fishing on his latest afternoon/night bass fishing adventure to Clear Lake.
“I guided a father/son team Friday afternoon/night,” said Hemphill. “It was a fun trip and we spent most of our time in the Oaks arm. Dad was visiting from Ohio and for both of them it was their first trip to Clear Lake.”
“I showed them how bass used various structure and we fished a lot of different types of areas,” he stated. “Fishing was slower than I expected, but what IS slow at Clear Lake? The son landed the big bass of the trip at 6 lbs. 2 o.z, using a Berkley Power Worm. Near the end of the trip, dad did his best to match it, but she only went 4 lbs. 13 oz.”
“We did have a 23 lb. limit - but I expected better,” Hemphill added. “The bite for us was totally worms - 6 to 10 inch - about 10 to 20 feet, mostly black grape color. We spent most of our time this trip in the Rattlesnake arm.”
Hemphill noted that the silversides population is huge this year. “They got off to a late start - but wow,” he said. “It is so cool to hear them at night - sounds just like being in a rainstorm!”Back To Reports
