Pro Teen Event This Sunday @Russo’s Marina.
For Year’s The Pro Teen event has provided youth anglers with an opportunity to fish tournament with some of the West’s best Pro’s. It’s with Great Sadness the gentleman that started this event Andy “Cooch” Cuccia passed away this past week and the angling community is stepping up to pull off this event in his honor. Personally devastated as Andy was one of the best men I have had the pleasure of knowing in this business I urge all the men and women to come out and make this a special event for his family in this tough time.
Cool weather and some rain has moved the Salmon fishing right along. Capt. Stan Spinners continue to lead the charge for the trolling anglers. Wow! It’s great to here first time anglers giving credit to our salmon set-ups! The cooler evening temps have helped the bite tremendously. Also Cranking Bandit 200 hundred cranks smacking the Smallies
Solid Salmon reports in the area with temperatures return more fall like. Best area has been Courtland to Walnut grove. Bank anglers using liver’s and cut baits prevail for those searching for Stripers. The Sacramento Turning Basin is still decent here as there continues to be stripes caught there by lure tossers. Hair jigs and small shad patterns are the top choices here as well..
Bass pushing the 3 to 4 pounds mark are showing on occasion Prank Poppers and swim jigs are the best for numbers . Plenty of juvenile stripers are in the area as well. Stck with the Reaction baits tied on as Crankbaits and Chatterbaits are scoring bass on the main runway rock walls.
Striped bass and plenty of bait building in the area. Spooks And swim baits are key for lure tossing anglers. Drifting Bluegill and Minnows are the key for Stripers. Black Bass Anglers spinnerbaits and swim jigs also work well. Panfish are plentiful Red Worms leading the charge, Plenty of 2 to 4 pound Catfish on various cut baits are keeping the bells a ringing.
Antioch pier persistent bait dunkers with Anchovies and Sardines are finding fun action. Anglers in search of stripers are finding the bite to be decent but still those who stick with it are getting keepers to 12 pounds on occasion from both boat and bank. Bass Bite stays solid in the Break and surrounding cuts. Salmon? They’re still Here! Cooler water temps have exploded the salmon bite for those tossing Red Eye Shad and Spinners 10 plus a day from Humphries this week! Honker Bay to the Broad Slough provide anglers more and more better Stripes each day!
Bandit 200 series and spinnerbaits are key for Bass. Bait Anglers are catching catfish and panfish throughout the area, While cutbaits and livers are tops for the catfish, the panfish respond to worms under bobbers. Those fishing the forebay are seeing stripes on lures and bluegill.
