Today's River2Sea field test on the California Delta found the bass ready to bite. Four hours on the water produced 18 fish, primarily found on tule flats in 4-ft, adjacent to the main channel. "They were filtering out of the San Joaquin," stated River2Sea's media and marketing consultant and AdvancedAngler.com managing editor Dan O'Sullivan. "We got a bunch of them on areas with rocks and tules with Ish's Bling and Biggie." He noted that the Biggie crankbait worked in anything red and they were using the bumpin' version.
River2Sea pro staffer Vince Borges led the way with the majority of fish, including their big bass of the day, a seven pounder. Borges was fishing a TNT Wadda Jig in black and blue. A watermelon red, 6-inch, Texas-rigged Yamamoto Senko helped their national sales manager Angelo Alorro boat his five and a River2Sea prototype jig with a craw trailer tempted the four pounder on the end of COO Simon Chan's line. O'Sullivan's best was also a five and bit a black and red River2Sea Junk Grenade with a Strike King Rage Tail Menace Grub.
"It seemed like they would watch the bait fall and then hit it as soon as you made your first move," stated O'Sullivan. "I saw a few already had moved up on the bank to a nesting area. It won't be long until the Delta busts wide-open."
Conditions today were overcast with a slight wind in the mid 70's. The water temp was 55-degrees at launch and rose to 58 by 1 p.m.
