tauber clientGuide Rich Tauber was gloating again yesterday, given he and his clients were on ’em again.

Said Rich, “No, that’s not Manny Ramirez, but batting gloves are standard equipment at Lake Casitas. The monster bass are on the prowl big time….”

Lake Casitas is known to provide many memorable moments. In this case, Friday, Steven Wood of Seattle, WA captured this 8-pound, 15-ounce largemouth. “We have had excellent topwater fishing every morning in the gray,” said Tauber. “Then we fish the live shad on the flyline in the afternoon.”

Not every fish is a thumper, but Rich says, “It is very difficult to catch a bass under 2 pounds. We are catching lots of 3 to 5-pound stuff. Weather is fantastic, with cool 5-10 mile an hour onshore breezes from the nearby ocean every afternoon.”
