I heard Lake Hodges was doing good, so I decided to try it out on Wednesday. This place had a magical feel to it.
It was the first time I've been here, so I just found a point on the eastside of the lake and tried my luck with the senko...BAM!
After catching a few on the eastside, I headed to the westside of the lake.
In the distance is the 15 fwy. I've driven by this lake many times, always wondering what it was like. The lake was beyond my expectations and possibly my favorite so far.

Went out friday morning to the Jewel of Southern California, Diamond Valley Lake. It took awhile to get through the gate.
After almost an hour of no bites. I finally hooked this bad boy! I caught two more about the same size.
They started to get bigger.
Drop shot Morning Dawn...
This was my last one of the day. She swallowed the final, morning dawn colored worm I had left.

             Ladies and Gents, i give you... Captain Banes (on his own bass boat)!
 Now that we have a couple of brand new bass boats in BassWassup, things just look better.
                                         Aaahhh, Perris in ze spring time.
                                      If you look closely, you can see a bunch of birds.
                                                                 Captain's chair
 Banes and i have been talking about the Alabama Rig lately, so Banes went out and got it.
 Are you ready to catch three bass at once? Can you handle that action? Banes can.
                We spotted a bird in the distance that was having a hard time taking off.
Come to find out, he had a bunch of fishing line wrapped around his neck. The dude was stuck.
We got close enough to get him on the boat to try and help him out. Banes trying to find the line.
   Banes got him all unwrapped. You could tell he was very happy after we helped him.
                                     Just another day of saving lives on bass boat #1.
                                            Have a nice day, little buddy.
           Banes strikes with a beauty! Here he's debating whether to french kiss the fish or not.
    These photos aren't in order. Banes with another beauty on bass boat #1.
                                                            Nice chunk here!
   We wanted to try out the live well, so we put this guy in there. He didn't like it much, so we let him out after about 10 seconds. He was trying to commit suicide in there.
                                                              STAY WHITE
                   Banes either re-applying or enjoying the smell of bass on his hand.
                                                                        uh oh...
                           There she is! It was a crazy experience for me being on this boat.
                       Another art shot of Banes and the bird.
             Getting my first fish of the year was such a good feeling. I got 6 on my first day.
                                                       Another one at our spot.
                                                               Happy Kenny
                        Like i said, these aren't in order. This was actually the first fish of the day.

Lance, being the nervous type, couldn't make it Saturday. Stiff competition.
Anyways, we got a late start and I luckily pulled this bad boy out pretty early.

Getting your skunk insurance is always stressful. We had a rough time figuring out what the bass where doing, so it took a while for my Dad to get his.

My Dad with another one.

I know I don't look very happy. I don't smile in photos, it's a problem of mine.
But. . . I was hyped! BASSWASSUP!

#3 and that's it.

Weekday Bassin'

I wanted to go to El Capitan. When I got there the gates were closed, so I decided to try Lake Cuyamaca which is not far from my house, but it's up in the mountains. I was greeted to some snow on the way up.
First time launching the boat by myself, it went well. The sucky thing was that I was wearing flip flops and got skunked.
The next day El Capitan was open!
Got me a pretty one!
And another...
This one had a crawdad coming up. You can kinda see it. I hurried up and threw her back in so that see could finish it off.
Behold the dreaded Quagga Mussel... Apparently El Capitan has a problem with these bad boys.
Afternoon blowout!
