     CASTAIC: The very good striper action has continued this week. The best action this past week has been at the Ski Arm buoy line on topwater baits and small Kastmasters. Fish are also still showing on fresh sardines, anchovies, lug worms, or blood worms in 50 to 75 feet of water. Most of the stripers are smaller two to three-pound fish. The largemouth bass are fair to good with the fish boiling on small shad off and on throughout the day this past week, but most are still showing on small plastics, reaction baits, and topwater. Good catfish with some cats into the double digit range, mostly on cut baits or nightcrawlers. Some panfish action, with a lot of small bluegill clustered around structure and being caught on meal worms, wax worms, or crickets. Trout slow.

2 fish caught | Lunker: 2lb Largemouth Bass using a Roboworm Rubber Worm

I've pre-fished Castiac on Thursday and caught my first crankbait bass for this year on my Skeet Reese cranking stick. Come Saturday on the day of the tournament, I came in third place. It was around 95 degrees with 11mph winds. I started off good in the morning by the damn with two bass throwing a Shakey Head.
