Stren Oroville Update Pre Fish Monday
This is my first blog and I am really excited to be part of CalBassin.com. I plan to keep you up to date on my fishing adventures, tournaments etc.
For the last few days I have been pre-fishing Oroville for the Stren Oroville tournament. I did fish two team tournaments on Oroville in the last few weeks winning one two weeks ago with Ken Douglas (12.33 lbs) and then taking 5th this weekend with J.R. Wright with 9.94. Unfortunately, I broke off a few good fish but, that's fishing.
As for the stren event, it looks like its going to take about 11 lbs a day to win the tournament. Unless of course, somebody catches a big fish one of the days. I still think that 33 lbs should do it. Getting a check should be about 8.5 a day for the boater for a 17 lbs total for the two days. Most of the fish are post spawn with a few spawners left.
The lake is pretty busy with pre-fisherman so the fish could get a little spooky. At least the weather is good for us and it should hold up and get even hotter. The hotter weather should help the bite.
Today I caught three 2 lbers and one in the 1 3/4 pound range.
Should make for an exciting event. I will be updating throughout the week! Stay tuned.
