Clear Lake (fresh water lake)
Updated 2014-10-22 20:10:04

Not enough rain last week to make a difference. A 42-pound bag won a two-day tournament last weekend. Crank baits in the morning and flipping the weeds in the afternoon are the best way to go. Live minnows are a great producer of catfish. Clear Lake Outdoors (707) 262-5852
