Fishing at the mighty El Cap has been really good this year. Justin met Kevin and went out I hopes of a stellar day and his first Swimbait fish.
"The bite at El Cap was a little on the slow side this day compared to previous trips" said Kevin. Despite the slower bite they caught about 10 Bass on a variety of baits. A few fish on the thin senko, fly linning it around trees and in the shad pockets. A couple on the breaking fish but they were pretty picky. Some Fluttercraft drop shot fish and 1 on a crankbait.
Kevin said "then the wind picked up and we started throwing the swimbait. And then it happend...Justin's first Swimbait fish and a pretty good one caught on a CL8Bait".
Overall it was a fun day but fish are pulling off the bank and starting the get into the channels. The deep c-rig bite should be on soon.
Fall and Winter time fishing at El Cap can be really good if you can locate the schools. These fish tend to concentrate in large numbers and when you find em it's on! Good luck!

Hey Bass Kings! Another great day at Lower Otay! I grew up on this lake and just love fishing here.
Otay has been very steady over the past few weeks, and with nice weather should continue to remain good for a while. Every day is a bit different but you just have to move around until you find bass on the shad.
Mark and I found em today.
We fished topwater and the CL8Bait "water vole" for a couple good one's early. Then we moved over to the large schools of feeding bass.
Yes they were bustin on the shad pretty good and we caught em on the scrounger/fluke and a special lil shad bait I have they can't resist. You have to be quick, use the right line, and make very accurate casts on the boils.
The water temp dropped a few degrees over last week and the lake is full. Good luck!
Here is the CL8Bait -

Lower Otay has been very steady over the past few weeks, and with nice weather should continue to remain good for a while. Every day is a bit different but you just have to move around until you find bass on the shad.
If you stay late you're in for a great afternoon topwater bite. There is a pretty good worm bite from 10-25ft in and around grass beds and if you catch 1 worm fish on a spot don't move because you'll catch several more. Then there is the "bustin fish" bite on the shad baits. You have to be quick and make very accurate casts on the boils.
The scrounger/fluke, underspins, and small jerkbaits are my lure choices right now. The water is a warm (78/79 degrees) and the lake is full. Our big bite of the day on Saturday, a 5 lber, came off after it jumped but 10 year old Miles caught a bunch including this nice one (pictured). Good luck!

Hey Bass Kings! Kevin gets em again and says fishing is "steady"! The deep bite at DVL is still really good but we are still waiting for those "breakin" fish to come up on the shad. Can't figure out why they aren't on the shad yet but it's only a matter of time.
Client Chris caught a bunch of fish, learned how to drop shot, read the Lowrance HDS graph, and had 2 really BIG fish swirling around his 7in CL8 Swimbait bait but would not commit. Most of the Bass were caught deep 20-40ft on points and underwater humps. Kevin said "they bit good when the wind blew; light line, and fishing slow was key to getting good bites".
Gear and Baits used today; Fluttercraft worms, CL8 Swimbaits, IKA, Artifishable shad baits, KN Kustom rods
Lotsa talk on the water about the slow to develop topwater "breaking" fish bite but it's sure to improve in the coming months. Fish are spread out. The main lake points are still good.
The best DS bite is 20-40 feet of water. If you don't have success there are a few tricks to the place we call "the jewel" and we can show you. Book your trip soon.
