First time this year for me fishing Clear Lake today. No disappointments. Fished 6am to 10am...with calm conditions with only a few other boats around when I left. Caught and released 12 largemouth bass, the smallest being 2 pounds...no dinks! Got 6 bass over 4 pounds, with one being close to 8 pounds. Not many lily pads up yet - caught them along the shoreline or near pilings. Swim jig with a paddle tail trailer worked for me. A wonderful fishing day when all my big bass dreams came true! Good luck to all!
