Otay still yielding solid bass numbers

Published: Nov 22, 2017
CHULA VISTA — One of the most consistent bass fishing reservoirs all season in the greater San Diego region, Otay just keeps solidifying that reputation, with the fishery continuing to kick out very respectable numbers of largemouth heading into the back half of November. While it's not exactly a wide-open affair at the Chula Vista reservoir, having up to 30-fish outings in the cooling days of fall can hardly be viewed as anything other than rock solid bassin'.

FROM OJAI TO OTAY — Ricky Adams of Ojai shows off a sample of Otay largemouth caught last week on the Texas rig while fishing with SoCal guide Rusty Brown.

That was exactly the case for SoCal guide Rusty Brown and clients this past week, who tapped into a pattern at Otay that produced upwards of 30 largemouth to 5 pounds – a pretty stellar day all in all, especially so for the middle of November.

“It really was pretty good,” Brown said. “And what was fun about it was that it was mostly shallow fish, two to eight feet of water around the tule stocks. We had a really good Texas rig bite going, getting most of our fish on 7- and 8-inch worms in Margarita Mutilator and Cinnamon Blue Neon and fished on 3/16 bullets in the Harvey Arm. Fun stuff.”

Brown said most of the largemouth were solid 1 ½ to 3 pounders, topped by a few fish going 4 and 5 pounds. Along with the Texas rig, he said they also picked off a few good bass throwing weightless white Flukes and bluegill-pattern spinnerbaits, with a couple fish also coming on the drop-shot.
