Well me, Russ, Rick, and Mickey will be hitting Clear Lake later this week. Would be nice to rank but no matter it will be a good time! Hopefully we boat a few nice Cats this week.

The weather has been a bit nuts lately so hopefully they aren't too shy and in shock with all this cold/warm/rain crap!!!

We will be fishing Secret 7 for sure on a pole or two but need to figure out exactly what else were going to fish with also.

Cut bait? Live Minnows? Marshmellows soaked in garlic......we shall see! Can't wait to get on the road!

It will be a awesome time! I hope all this funky weather we have had along with the cold don't make them a bit lethargic and slow the bite. Not sure what the lake temps are but I hope there 60 and above!

I am thinking of taking a trip up to Clear Lake with the family this summer. Anyone have recommendations for places to stay near fishing, either rental houses or hotels?


Sean..... I read a post by Randy,,,Knot Guilty of another site.... and he mentioned where he stayed... close to the water ... enough to have a pole out .... (for carp ) i think...
try..... a n g l e r n e t dot n e t...... for clear lake...
Maybe the the boys from here will say what things were like...


good luck......

There is some nice lodges up there. I been wanting to go for quite some time for the tournament but have not been able to swing it yet - someone always flakes - lol. But it will happen one day. Its best to go in with a few people to cut down on the expenses.

If you want to spend less you can camp there right next to the lake, Or rent a little pull behind trailer and camp there plus you can rent boats
Sounds like a good idea since I will be spending of my time on the water. No need to get the resorts when I will not really be there but to wash up - sounds like a waste of money just to wash up in a nice cabin or resorts and not fully enjoy it. I may look into it especially if the camp grounds have a wash area.

One of the few lakes that I have seen where folks pull their boat out on ramps or lifts to get then up and out of the wave action.... Some do it for the winter...

We use to overnight there on the way to Oregon going salmon fishing...

So I'll be up looking at it before a tournament.... like to do the summer concert thing one night.


Wife wants to go too
