Barrett Lake, located in East San Diego County, continues to provide excellent catch and release experiences. This past Wednesday, despite the sunny weather, I managed to catch 22, mostly on topwater. The catch size was lower compared to the previous weeks when the weather was overcast, where I caught 38 each week. The fish averaged 3 lbs each, with a few weighing in at 4 and 5 lbs, and a couple of hefty ones at 6 and 7 lbs. My go-to lures were Spooks, frogs, and boot tail flukes. It’s been a fun time!

By the way, I’m on the lookout for a 6″ wooden Lunker Punker, as I recently lost my last one. If anyone has one they’re willing to sell, please message me.

The posted report about the lake’s level is outdated and no longer accurate. Last year, due to the heavy rains in San Diego, the lake, like many others in the area, experienced a significant increase in water levels. Recent rains might help maintain it at the 75% mark where it’s been hovering at. For more detailed information and updates on lake levels, visit my website. The link is on the left side.

During my most recent visit to the lake, I managed to catch three 4-6 pounders within my first three casts using a bass fry plug in the grass holes, just a couple of feet from shore. The green weenie colored reapers were the most successful on drop shot. I ended the day with approximately 25 fish, 20 of which were between 3-6+ pounds and a few smaller ones ranging from 1.5-2.3 pounds. Due to other commitments, I had to stop fishing at noon, but I am eagerly looking forward to my next visit.

Tips: Be patient with your presentation of any kind of plastics and keep a close watch on your line as the bite can be subtle.

This was my first time float tubin here and it was an exceptional way to stay on the fish. Managed to catch 130+…most of which were caught using 4″ drop shot worms and Senkos (lighter colors, greens) worked slowly in 10-12′ of water, just outside the weed edges. I also caught some on pig/jig. Although most were post-spawners and not that active, they were gathered in the same spot. As the fish were not active, we seemed to do better than the boaters, who tended to drift past too quickly.

Tips: After the spawn, use a slow, deliberate presentation…get the bait in their face, shake it and feel for a “pressure” bite.

The opening day ’03 was one for the record books. I caught 115 fish, ranging from 2 to 6lbs, using pig/jig all day. In the morning and evening, buzzers/sammy’s, drop shot 4′ were successful when it got “slow”. I had to switch to DDcranks as my jig rod was overheating, but they all got bites. My girlfriend caught “only” 55 as throwing jigs makes her wrist hurt with the hookset.

Tips: For a day like this, just showing up is enough!

Although the day was challenging by Barrett standards, I managed to catch 14 Largemouth Bass (LMB) up to 6.5lbs (verified on scales). I was using blue/black pig/jigs, 7″ Florida rigged dark worms, or drop-shot 4″ dark worms, and slowly crawling over rock piles in 8-12′ water. Any faster and they wouldn’t bite. Only one blow up on a buzzbait early.

Tips: After spawning, slow fishing is the way to go. The water is an unusual greenish-brown color…two guides deep and your rod is out of sight, which could be a factor.
