They say time on the water is the key. The lack of it showed at this event. Engine trouble, last minute repairs, limited pre-fish and these were the best 5 I could come up with.
#1 Tulle point, sunrise and the moon in the same sky.
#2 Shoreline southern lake.
#3 Community Hole to say the least. Despite Clear Lake's size it fishes very small. Jump in there if you choose, there's nothing holding you back. Myself I can't do it, I'm on nothing yet I would rather look for something else than join that party.
#4 Konocti Vista Casino, host Marina.
#5 End of shift, I have photographed this lake on 3 separate events. It doesn't matter what time of year I visit, this is a beautiful place, but...
...here is a kicker, in current events a fellow angler lost his life to a violent senseless crime. While attending a BASS Open Jimmy Johnson was fatally shot. He was checking on his boat when he came upon a thief. No one should lose their life for checking on a boat and its equipment, yet that is exactly what happened. On the first night of this Clear Lake event there was a gun fight just outside my motel. As beautiful as this place can be it is like anywhere and some are looking to prey upon you. Travel together, stay together, look out for each other. Check on things together. Make yourself a tougher 'Mark'.
