Largemouth Bass:

Largemouth Bass fishing is currently in a strong Fall pattern. Topwater lures, finesse techniques and live Shad are available to anglers on a daily basis. Lucky Craft Gunfish and weightless Zoom Flukes continue to be our mainstay attack in the low-light periods. The Fish Arm points, bluffs and cuts are great target zones. Dropshotting the usual C3 Baits and small plastics in 15′ to 25′ of water in these areas continue to put quality Bass in the boat as well.

Striped Bass:

Striper fishing was good again this week with topwater, vertical jigging and live Shad being the best approach on fish to seven pounds. There has been a pretty solid surface bite in the mornings and again during the last hour of the day with the Stripers boiling just about anywhere on any given day. The best strategy is to keep the motor running while looking for birds and baitfish activity.

Castaic Afterbay: 

We are not fishing the lagoon right now as most of our time has been focused on Striped Bass.
