    Default Los Angeles Bass Fishing Report

    I spent some days in Los Angeles and did not catch any bass. If you are looking for good bass fishing Los Angeles is not the place to go. I did snorkel one day down in Orange County and spotted some calico bass along with some garibaldis and a sheephead and a few other fish I did not recognize. That was pretty fun. The snorkeling report is good. I was also able to spot Balloon Dog which is kind of a cool piece of art. When I got back from Los Angeles I did go to the Delta where I was greeted with a nice sunrise and a fat top water largemouth. Light winds next week. Hopefully there is a passel of big bass waiting for me out there somewhere.

    Great pictures as always John! I think sunrises give sunsets a run for their money.

    I think the thread title qualifies as "clickbait" but super nice shots !

    Odonata- Click bait, maybe but that was not my goal. I try to come up with something fresh. A Delta Today post every few days gets old. I like keep it interesting if I can. It would be nice if a few more people on this board made an effort to make an interesting post. I figured if I made an Oregon Bass post that was mostly about other things I could do it with Los Angeles. I went to the chiropractor yesterday. I might work that into my next bass fishing report.

    I spent some time trying to figure out what your board name meant. I guessed it was some mash up of your first and last name but could not get it. I was driving one day and went past Odonata Farms and there was a dragonfly on the sign and I got it. Kind of funny.

    The smiley face was my attempt at humor Clickbait or not, I'm guessing a lot of folks on this board look forward to seeing your posts, myself included.

    Regarding my username -- when I was a kid I was interested in entomology. These days I enjoy tossing foam dragon and damselflies to the bass in the spring and summer when I can (and the trout too).







    BTW I haven't been back to the ranch ponds in a while, but suspect the water situation is pretty dire up there, particularly for that lower pond. Have to make time to check out the delta ...

    I used to fish a foam dragonfly on the ponds. That was the best pond fly I could find. The big smart ones we’re willing to grab it. Most other flies they were wise to. I expect most ponds now are mud and some carcasses. The Delta is fun if you can find some water without too much boat traffic.

    John,
    I certainly DO appreciate your "reports" and never knowingly miss one. Sometimes it takes awhile to get back on the computer though with our "non-scheduling" life. Your photos are astounding, be they fish porn, scenery, or the artistic presentations, such as, the "blue dog" and the detailed reflections obtained.
    We drive thru Davis multiple times weekly but suspect you're gone "researching" for your "reports". Thank you much for that.....
    .....lee s.

    There's some very good black bass fishing from Ventura all the way down to San Diego.
    For Calicos and Sandies your gonna need a boat or float tube. When I lived down there in the 90's we would float tube Newport back bays and Dana port Harbor. I have been wanting to get back there for years.
