The Fishing Report
Anybody read the San Diego fish reports lately?.......woo hoo!
The bluefin are still going at it on day and a half and better trips, the yellowtail have been fabulous this year…..sheesh and its just about November!
Surfperch have been great on the beaches from Malibu to Oxnard—try using Berkely Gulp Sandworms you will be amazed!!
If you're itching to go fishing, remember that Irvine Lake's trout season opener is coming up real fast! 20,000 lbs. of trout will be stocked for this opener for November 1st, 2nd & 3rd.
Looks like Irvine Lake really is "The lake that wants you to catch a fish," so grab the family and get out there!
Don’t forget: New line, Lures, Powerbait, Nightcrawlers, Stringer, Net, Camera, and your Wil’s Sport and Tackle T-shirt!!
When you are fishing your favorite trout stream, have you ever tried a small crawdad lure?
Whether it’s a crankbait or a plastic they are very
productive. Crayfish are a major food item for Bass, Catfish and Trout. This should work wonders in the sierras, so give it a try!
As it gets cooler we get into the part of the year when DF&W will start planting trout (cross your fingers).
It’s also a great time for stripers and largemouth! Use 6 to 10 inch trout swimbaits for these.
A really popular lure is the BBZ1 from Spro - yes, we've got 'em! This is a lure you will use with 50lb Spectra with a 30 or 40lb leader, and you also need a rod capable of throwing heavy lures.
When throwing large lures you don’t hook as many fish, but when you do its pretty cool!
Remember as we head into cooler weather the way we fish
needs to change also. As water cools a fish's metabolism slows down as well. What does this mean to you?
You might try throwing smaller lures or smaller bait, also
slow down your presentation because fish will be less apt to chase quickly after it. This generally does not apply to trout as they are a colder
water fish anyway.
So, don't let the cooler weather stop you - get out there and go fishing!
