Come along for an early pre-spawn day on Clearlake. The water temps are in the low 50's, air temps at launch are 37 degrees, but the bass are biting! We spend the day adapting and developing a pattern as we explore the lake with a variety of reaction baits.
We all dream about the wide open Spring bite but more often than not we're met with challenging weather conditions. This day was a perfect example of changing conditions resulting in a bite that was tougher than anticipated. The difference between frustration and success is being willing to adapt.
Below is a breakdown of the baits and gear Matt used in the video.
