Haven't seen many bass reports for my local lakes lately so figured I'd contribute. I got off work early so decided to some fishing. Started out at beaver at about 630pm. After my 3rd dink of a fish (literally less than 6 inches) I decided to move to clear lake where I generally have more luck. Man was that water clear! Got on the water at 8pm and launched from the gravel side. It was hot and windy as always. I pitched a jig next to the pilings to hook into my first fish. It wasn't very big, but compared to what I was catching at beaver she sure had some fight. I continued to work the pilings missing a bite close to the end before jetting across to the next set of pilings in the shade where I managed to pick one off a Texas rig. (Another dink). With the sun going down I knew I didn't have much longer, so I went to the far side of the lake to work the lily pads with my popping frog. I hooked into one almost immediately, watching the v on the top of the water as it went after it. Then I didn't catch anything for another while and the sun was almost completely down by now. I was just getting ready to leave when I decided one last cast out from the lily pads a ways and bam got ate up by a 2 lber or so to top the night off. Finally some wieght! I dont know what it is but the hour before sunset is always been really productive for me.

Good report...I gave up on clear lake when power boats started coming out in late May and June...be back there soon. I had good luck fall fishing there last few years. Thanks for the report...there are some big bass in Clear Lake. Just have to avoid the speed boats.

Thanks, I usually will only fish clearlake an hour or two before dark and theres typically not many pleasure boaters then, the only problem at that time is everyone parks there cars in the middle of the boat ramp! I have had a lot of fishless days on this lake, so anytime I catch a few I always feel good about it. I've also caught my first bass over a pound at this lake(went for 6lbs??) and a few more after that. So this lake always holds a special place to my heart for bass fishing.
