    seal definitely knows Silverwood better than I do.

    I was a Boat Capitan at the Cast-4-Kids event held there a couple of weeks ago and the Kids I took out caught a 2 1/2 - 3 lber on a 6" Morning Dawn drop-shotted. You might give a 6" Margarita Mutilator as well as Morning Dawn, Aaron's Magic, (which i've not fished there), or a Green Pumpkin Thin Sinko flylined. I imagine the wind will be blowing in the pm at Silverwood... normally does.

    The bite is wide open guys.. May and June are some of the best months to fish Silverwood..
    I just fished the ABA tourney there a week and a half ago and We smashed them.. had over 30 keepers... The bite was wide open for us.. our 4 fish limit weighed over 19 lbs. And I had the big bass of the tourney.. It weighed 9.12 lbs.. It was a giant for Silverwood.. all of our fish were caught in less than 8 ft of water..
    There are also bedfish all over the lake.. but I didn't fish for those, we fished for the pre spawners..
    Here are a couple pics..Click image for larger version.

    Yes the day of the ABA was a very good day, saw some of the boats come in. My observations of the last week have been a downturn with little bedding activity. Also some anecdotal reports from boaters have been a bit of a downturn, I have not been out on the water as much as I wish recently, mostly shore banging, so I will defer to your expertise. I am aware of that days bite and your big one, congratulations!

    Wide open? Sorry Pete I wouldn't consider it that over the last week but as you know a day or 2 can make all the difference, hell today it might be wide open again! But for some with your abilities every day is wide open.

    So I will be fishing near Cleghorn and maybe near the dock and miller canyon depending on weather condition and the distance from Cleghorn launch. How is bass biting near above mentioned area?
    I appreciate your replies! And congrats on your big fish!

    I fished there on the 21st. The algae bloom was kicking, but not as bad as DV last week. I boated about 20 LMB, 2-4lbs. Silverwood is good! In my defense, I recently went out with Pete Marino and he showed me a few tricks.

    The bite is very good... We went out mid last week and had 29 Keepers... With 3 of them over 4 lbs... We never even bothered to bedfish we fished for prespawn fish and post spawners.. Had we not lost a few at the boat we would have had over 30... Heads up guys...here is what you should do... Fish bays, cuts, sloping banks (Not steep), chunk rock, in front of sandy beaches, fish 2-8ft.. Fish small, unassuming, subtle baits, ....If that don't work... call me for a guide trip...

    Kind of forgot about the small bait rule this time of the year at Silverwood, oops! Tiny flukes and similar baits have always been good this time of the year. Rigged up now and ready for tonight's adventure.
