    Took the opportunity to fish last Monday, Memorial Day. Good friend of mine is staying in San Diego and really wanted to get out and fish green bass so I muscled up and met him down at the lake at 5:30 AM. Pleasantly surprised to see only two other rigs in the parking lot. We fished till noon caught over 30 bass and even chased and caught busters In Harvey arm. Super fun day nothing huge but great action. I think there were five boats on the lake total all day. Pleasantly surprised on a holiday Monday! As we were leaving a few guys were showing up for the afternoon session which I’m sure was excellent. Finally got a coveted boat reservation for Barrett on Saturday then it’s offshore fishing for the next 6 months! What an awesome season so far!

    I couldn’t believe nobody was there. I was surprised the lake was open when I checked. I was even more surprised when I got down there and nobody was fishing. It worked out well
