Summer Fishing

Tuesday, June 22, 2010

I love fishing in the Summer. So far this month of June I have fished Lake Murray, El Capitan and Otay. And the one thing each lake has in common this time of year is if you find the bait you will find bass. We have been catching them on many different techniques. Since I'm not stuck on 1 or 2 patterns, like throwing worms and sight fishing, summer is the time of year to try new baits and build confidence in a bait you need to get better at.

Review - Shimano Curado CU200

Tuesday, June 01, 2010

So this may be old news to some of you but I felt compelled to write about it.  I guess I haven't bought a new reel in a while.  I think I have 9 Shimano Curado "old style" reels and I was blown away when I saw the new one (CU200E7).  My buddy Marco called me when his arrived in the mail.  He went on and on about how small it was yet it felt solid and had a regular 200 size spool.  Well, i went over to his house and when I put it in my hand I understood.  The frame is super low profile.  This reel is awesome.  Built well, small, and not to expensive.  I have always been I Shimano fan and will continue to be.  I just ordered mine.

Windy, windy windy!  This year has been very challenging weather conditions almost every tournament.  Weird.  A strong cold front had moved in and once again we were greeted with cold windy conditions for the Kevin Menio Memorial Series tournament at Lake Otay.

My Mom let me fish today. Thanks Mom and happy mothers day! Dennis Kolender and I hit the water about 7am and we're greeted by cold windy conditions. Perfect for the swimbait. Lake Murray is small but had monster Bass and a lake full of trout.

San Diego Bay

Sunday, May 02, 2010

My Dad and good friend Marco Fenelli were greeted by strong winds at the launch ramp Sunday morning. After a nice half scoop of bait from the barge we headed toward Dad's Halibut hole. Nobody home now time for some bay bass action. We fished MC swimbaits on light and medium gear a caught a few small bass. I like the smelt and shrimp colors or anything with green and orange.
