CTT @ Lake Oroville
Day 1 of CTT (California Tournament Trail), water temps were anywhere from 49- 52 degrees, water was dirty with about a 2ft visibility. My pro for day 1 was Scott Head, we started off in the South fork fishing island tops in about 5-15ft of water. With no luck we moved to a waterfall and caught a limit on ¼ darterheads rigged with 2.8 Keitech rainbow shad. About noon the wind started to pick up so we fished rock walls with white on white spinnerbaits and a underspin with a 2.8 kKitech rainbow shad, caught about 10 fish with a couple good 2 pound spots. Towards the end of the day we started fishing shallow sand banks with spinnerbaits and caught better fish. We weighed 9.98 for the first day.
Day 2 of CTT, water temps and water clarity were the same but the wind was blowing a little more. My pro for day 2 was Mark Lassagne, owner of BAM (Bass Angler Magazine) we fished main body points and coves throwing a-rigs and a underspin with a 2.8 Keitech. Around 1pm we headed up north and found a crankbait bite, I was throwing a Ima Pinjack in Hot Craw color in about 3-9ft of water. We ended the day with 9.95, overall it was a decent tournament. Finished 13th on the am side, Bill Cook and the CTT staff run a amazing circuit and I do recommend it for anyone that is just starting out fishing Pro-Ams. I learned a lot from my pros.
