Tackle Express Castaic Fishing Reports
This time of year agriculture demands have this lake at lower water levels, which congregates the fish onto the deeper structures. Every bait you tie on is bigger here with magnum Lucky Craft SKT120 crankbaits and 7-8″ soft swimbaits like the Scottsboro’s or Megabass Magdrafts, rigged on 10/0 Owner Beast hooks being standard fare.
It had just rained prior to our arrival so there was a brown stain to the water which gave us a wide range of bait options. By far the most and biggest fish were caught on Kenny’s homemade, single bait Alabama Rig. Keitech Fat Swing Impact swimbaits in either 4.8 or 5.8 sizes were the top producers on this rig as well as on a jighead or as a Chatterbait trailer.
