April 17, 2014
Crappie Mania is still in full swing, but wind has been a problem in recent days. The bite is still very good with shore and boat anglers in the South Fork Arm getting 25-fish limits of slabs from one pound to 2-8 pretty. The best action is still on small minnows, but a few fish are also showing on small jigs tipped with Crappie Nibbles. Crappie anglers are reminded the limit is 25 per licensed angler. Anglers may not help another angler fill his limit, and each angler must have his own stringer or fish basket. The catfish bite has also been pretty good, but the largemouth bass action has been surprisingly tough. A few bluegill are starting to show. In spite of heavy plants, the trout fishing was tough this past weekend. The big annual trout derby reflected that fact, with lighter turnout than most years and much slower fishing. The highest value tag reported was worth $500, and the $1,000 winner for the longest fish was Thomas Amaro, Oxnard, with an 18 1/8th-inch rainbow. In total, there were $2,750 in prizes awarded during the three-day event. Information: Bob’s Bait 661-833-8657 or www.bobsbaitbucket.com.
