Clear Lake Fishing Report by Steve Perkins
Clear Lake Nov. 6th Water Temp, 58-65
Water Clarity, 1-2 ft. I fished up north the first part of the week and down south the end of the week catching good quality fish in both areas, I averaged 12 or more fish a day and most were 3 1/2 to 4 1/2 pounds with a couple larger ones. There are still lots of good weed beds up north but hardly any in the the areas I fished in the south end. I had to cover a fair amount of water to find the feeding fish but once located they were easy to catch. I Caught fish on Swim Baits, Jigs, Spoons, Tubes, and Worms. I had to change up the baits to keep the schools biting. A couple weeks ago I did well on top water and rip baits but this week it didn’t work for me. Not much has changed since the Triton Owners Tournament where we had a top 10 finish, but for me the bite is better in the south than it was a few weeks back. In the north end I fish the thick weeds and weed pockets with the Hippo Tackle swim bait rigged weedless, on the edges of the weed beds I fish the osprey, both on 15lb McCoy Floro100.
In the south end the biggest fish ate the spoon and the best bait for numbers was the Jig. My favorite jig this time of year is the Persuader 1/2oz football in purple/brown. For such a big lake it is fishing very small, for me it is all about finding a few good spots and throughly fishing them a few times throughout the day.
Tips. Cover water until you find feeding fish or see them on the graph, spend some time with them, if they dont bite check back throughout the day.
This time of year knowing how to read your graph will really pay off, A few times this week I would see them and then drop down the bait and catch them. Have Fun!
