Bangin the Bass this week

The Zaski men were unstoppable this week!  They caught Crappie, Bass, Bluegill and Trout mostly on minnows from a boat.  Mark Zaski caught his personal best Bass and is going to mount his 7 Pound Trophy BASS!!

Pete & Joe Visalli (brothers) trolled with crawlers all over the lake and caught a beautiful limit with a 4 pound topping their stringer !!  Merlin & Matt’s stringer held 7 nice Rainbows and they too trolled with flashers and crawlers under the power lines.

Molly Purvis caught a gorgeous 4 lb. Rainbow this week on a Rapala while trolling.  Steve Sherick went trout fishing on garlic Powerbait by the bridge but caught a Catfish instead (it weighed in at 6 lb. 8 oz.)

Adam Santos of Castro Valley actually TRIED for BASS and CAUGHT a BASS, a big one at that!! Adam was tossing spinner baits just bass the buoys heading towards the bridge and hooked a hefty hog weighing 6 lb. 8 oz.  After his photo shoot Adam took his bass back to where he caught it and let it go!! That’s real sportsmanship at it’s finest!!


Rebecca McIntosh fished off the dock at night and limited out on trout and her big one was a 6 pounder! She was so excited she came back the next night, she said she used nightcrawlers for bait.  The Uribe & Delgado families caught some nice trout on garlic yellow PowerBait also off the rental dock at night.

Trollers Nick & Lisa Collins (no relation)!! caught 3 nice bows trolling with Needlefish 40′ down in the channel.  Brad Carlon of Benicia caught a tagged trout and it was hooked on PowerBait and weighed 2 lb. 12 oz.

Even though we just experienced the hottest week of the year, triple digits and all, it didn’t slow down the fishing one bit.
