Lake Perris, CA largemouth

"Seems like it's getting worse out there Bob. Not sure if they spawn twice - they take a beating.  Fish I caught today were mostly post spawn which is weird because the surface temp went back down to 68*F. Even found post spawn females over…"

"Nice Sonny! Sounds like spawning time? Do you think the gills spawn twice during the spring/summer or just once, but at different times? When I'm float tubing I usually stay inside the buoys....too many crazy jet skiers and boats!"

Lake Perris, CA largemouth

"Thanks! Jeff: Caught it using my 6-weight with an intermediate line. Same set-up I use for Bluegill, except for Bluegill I use a weighted fly and let it sink down in deeper water when I'm float tubing."

Caught my presonal best largemouth (8 pounds) fly fishing form shore on a black woolly bugger. Now it's time to get out in the water and go after some big bluegill from my float tube!

Hi Mr. Gaines... My name is Rob...

I fish Perris every chance I get... but haven't tubed it in a while since Bernasconni has been closed until very recently.

I've admired your catches at Lake Perris, you obviously have applied due dilliegence.

You are obviously fishing the timber which means lost tackle presumambly. I am curious whether you use a sink tip or not? or a floating line and lots of patience.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks for getting me in the right direction for these carp. I will try to find this book.

Hey Bob I would like any info on how to catch carp on a fly. I have wanted to try this for years. Any info would be great.
