I got an opportunity to go fishing on Sunday so I decided to go to Lake Amador with a late start I figured I’d run up Jackson Creek to one of my favorite points started with a jig with no success so I picked up the drop shot and caught a few short fish. Then I got a good one around 4 1/2 pounds. My choice of drop shot baits was a Bass Assassin Lures little tapper in watermelon red flake.I caught a bunch more barely keepers so I decided to switch gears and throw some reaction style baits. With the wind blowing out of the west I went to the damn I started throwing a spinner bait the River2sea bling in the ice color and picked up another Good fish in the 4 pound range
, so I tied on the River2sea Goon crank bait in the i know it color and turned around and cranked back up the dam loading the boat! The fish were in the ten foot range and all in the four pound range!
Now that I had a solid pattern I ran to some other banks repeating this technique and ended up having a great day so if you’re headed out to Lake Amador you want to make sure you have your Bling spinner bait and your Goon crank baits tied on. Lake Amador also has the tacklebox cafe and some of the best food in Beautiful Amador County! Here in the Motherlode we have some of the best fishing locations with Lake Pardee, Comanche, Amador, Hogan and New Melones So if you’re looking for a great place to spend the weekend the mother load is the place where you can fish multiple lakes in one weekend and great camping food and boating facilities are available.
