Just back from Yuma, didn't manage any river bass. But Lake Mitry was off the hook, got my first buzz bait fish!

 

What an awesome piece of water, looking forward to getting back. Lots of places to launch from, plenty of spots between reeds to park and fish. One could camp, party and fish without worry of being harassed by fish and game, which is a big difference from CA fishing, I.e. No forest adventure pass, no parking fees, no lake use fees. Meet some pretty cool people, fished with some, talked with others. The fishermans brotherhood is strong in AZ.

 

The lake is made up of several little lakes(lagoons?) interconnected by channels, tunnels, pipes. These bass didn't seem to care that it was 98 and stupidly sunny. Topwater baits, spinners and cranks got'em for me all day (right up to about 12:30PM), my usual casts along the side and to cover were not necessary . Although effective, the fish were everywhere. Like right out in open water, I tried to drag a jig out there to see if some structure was holding these open water fish but seemed like a sand/mud bottom with some light aquatic plant materials coming along with my jig every third cast or so. No plastic bite, I don't know what I'm doing wrong.

 

 

Didn't care for Lake Martinez, but I didn't see much. Was a madhouse of half naked women and ski-boats. Lose the ski-boats and it would be a great Lake from what I saw.

 

Anyhoo, would love if any Mitry Lake fisherman could give some further guidance? Next trip I'll be staying at the lake and will be bringing my new kayak, that is when I have found a suitable cheap one!
