Fishing Report September 29, 2008

On Friday I headed out of Steele Park and at the point across from Spanish Flat I noticed lots of bait action. I decided the time was right to try some top water lures. I threw a white and chartreuse chugger and on my third cast towards the rocky shoreline in about ten feet of water I got smacked by a 2+ pound bass. What a great feeling!!!!!! I love that top water bite. I continued to work the shoreline into the cove and I continued to land some nice size bass. The bass seem to be more aggressive to the crankbaits then to the worm that I have been dragging. Saturday I went out with Albert in the late afternoon. We have been fishing together off and on for the last couple of weekends and poor Albert was not having too much luck. Well he made up for it Saturday by catching a 3 pound crappie and I caught an 8.5 pound catfish and Albert was just fed up with me (he loves catfish) so I told him you can't give up. We stayed at the dock after dark and it paid off big time for Albert, he ended up landing a 16 pound 11 ounce CATFISH!!!!! (see photo) Needless to say he was beyond happy he had always wanted to catch at least a 10 pound fish (any fish!!!) so he was thrilled. Sunday I trolled for awhile with no luck. All in all it was a pretty good weekend and I am just over-joyed for Albert. Friday I had kept a couple of the bass and I had them in a cooler on ice in front of my cabin. During the night raccoons helped themselves to a fish feast and didn't leave any for me. To add insult to injury, they ate the fish on my golf cart and left scales all over the floor. I guess they needed the fish more than I did and I hope they enjoyed it.
'til next week................................................good fishing!!!!!!!! If you have any stories you would like to share please email me at or call me at 650-583-3333.
