Don’t rush this season too much. It will likely be here and gone before we realize it..
A buddy of mine, Ron had simply returned from an excellent journey in El Salto bragging about how he had already been catching 5lbrs everyday and said he’d love to enter search of some quality Spotted Bass. Therefore with all the recent warm spring weather condition, I decided a trip to Oroville was in purchase.
We appeared to at the pond to obtain the atmosphere temperature was brisk with a light piece of cake, as well as the liquid temperature from the main pond was still only 54-55.
Looking for some effect seafood we headed superficial to my first self-confidence i'm all over this the key lake. It’s usually a wind-blown lender and faces western. We caught various smaller fish and something decent Male spot on a but, after the sunlight achieved within the east mountains the wind died so performed the bite.
We lay out looking for some feasible much deeper fish.. Keeping a close eye to my electronics I found some energetic fish on display in 15’ & 40’ not much in-between. We had some success with plastics getting a few tiny keepers; 4.5” roboworms, 5” senkos and Jackel Flick shake worms in both 4.8 and 5.8 Green pumpkin ended up being colour of choice.. Although not the standard seafood we had been shopping for.
Though it seems with all the current warm weather the fish in the main lake want progress and remain, they’re perhaps not there however.
We left the main lake proceeding into Southern Fork looking for warmer, stained water. We appeared up river to obtain the water temp was 3 degrees warmer and stained. In a matter of a few minutes we had been getting male Spotted Bass one immediately after the other in less than 10 ft of liquid with similar synthetic combinations mentioned previously, most of the fish arrived on the Jackel Flick shake.
This design held in for people all of those other early morning and though getting 20-30 seafood is a great time, we simply weren’t getting any larger seafood. At Noon, we ventured back to the main pond with desire to find hotter water temps and larger energetic fish.
Straight back on the primary pond I metered seafood in 30 + ft. but liquid temp had not show up a great deal and neither did the fish. We relocated into low coves and when again discovered hotter liquid and some energetic seafood.
It wasn’t a wide-open day, however with two more levels of warmer temps together with pond should bust open everywhere.
Idea regarding the time: following the effect bite dies or perhaps you lose the wind, scale-down your plastics and capture even more seafood! That time we caught more fish with small finesse style baits than whatever else. Get light for figures.
