    Have not posted a report in a while due to extreme laziness. Anyway the grass is back in a big way and seems thicker than last year. Word of advice the fishing is slow due to the time it take to get baits into the target zone in that super thick grass. If you want to chuck and wind good luck with that most people doing that were regulated to the middle of the lake unless you like peeling loads of grass on those treble hooks. Did not see much action going on in the middle of the lake on those types of bait. Most bass that I caught were on the shady side of the grass walls in 15’ plus. Patience is the key they are avoiding the sunlight.

    Nice job out there fishindad. Those bass at Otay sure love hiding in the grass. :)

    I remember from last year that you are more than a little good at that style of fishing!

    The key for me is to keep your rod position pointed at 12 o’clock after you cast and hit you desired target. Dropping your rod position any lower in that thick grass leads to more likely grass snags just give the bait time to drop with minute shakes so it wiggles down to the target. The only time you want to drop your rod position is when it’s time for the hook set.

    Over head cover is a key component in any good bass lake.

    Awesome report. If you hit Otay again let me know. I’m on the big orange fish cat float tube and I usually launch from Otay arm or on the point between both arms.
