Get Ready For Derby Season & New Melones Fishing Report for January 26th~by Glory Hole Sports

Posted by: thepinetree on 01/29/2015 08:08 AM
Angels Camp, CA...Tournament season is around the corner. Last year we saw a World Record Fish caught in February and are hoping for another one this year. Here are a couple February tournaments that could produce some giants and should be a lot of fun to fish. 100 Plus Bass Tournaments is coming to New Melones February 7th and 8th (two separate tournaments). This organization has an excellent payback percentage. They recently had a tournament on Pine Flat, 13-boats, first place took home $1350.00, and it's only a $180.00 entry fee. Let's help them draw more boats and see some big money get paid-out. Tell all your friends and come out and fish the next event on New Melones.

Glory Hole Sports Big Fish of the Week goes to Doug Mote of Riverbank. He landed a giant 14.70-pound catfish while fishing on a drop-shot rig while targeting bass.

Niko Coromelas of Rancho Cordova landed a 12.09-pound catfish. He caught it on a nightcrawler while fishing near the 49-bridge.

New Melones Fishing Report~by Glory Hole Sports

Posted by: Kim_Hamilton on 09/02/2014 08:38 AM
Deep reservoirs can be a challenge to fish. Some anglers consider fishing in 20-30' of water as deep water fishing. On a reservoir like New Melones, fish can be caught as deep as 70-90' of water.
