Heatin' up.

Went out for about an hour and a half today. The water is a little clearer today and a bit warmer. I could see the lure about a foot and a half down. The water temperature was 60.8 degrees. The bass should be staging for the spawn now. Try to find clearer water and 1 degree warmer can make all the difference in catching fish and not catching fish.

The beginning of the 2012 fishing season.

Well,it took some doing but I finally figured out how to get back on the blog. I was able to get my boat out of Monterrey Park launch Friday the 27th of January. I caught only one fish, but it was a pretty good first fish of the year. I caught it on a gold, black and orange Rattlin Rogue in about 3 feet of water. Water temp is 58 degrees already, so I think the spawn will be early this year. Bass usually start the spawn around 60 to 62 degrees. I went out 2 more times and have caught a total of 4 fish. Not earth shattering but not bad for the end of January. The water is quite dirty from the recent runoff. I will keep you posted.
