Click here to enlarge Tip&Trick Description 1: A Day On The Lake with Kurt vonBrandt
By Steve VonBrandt
I know many of you have seen a column in Basssmaster magazine where they challenge a 'Pro,' to go to an unknown lake and they chronicle each hour with what the Pro was casting, where they were casting, and why, and see what they can do, and end up with each day. Most of the lakes they have them fish, are always bigger than anything in Delaware, and most of Maryland. They are better than our lakes to begin with, once you have progressed to the level of fishing where you can always catch some fish, wherever you go, no matter how notoriously bad of a lake it is; and many times catching & landing, some quite large fish from places where most people never even see bass over 3 pounds, and when they do, they think they are five. I am or course referring to here in the Northeast, such as Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania.

So I challenged Kurt vonBrandt, of S&K Guide Service, to a day on a lake we will call 'Lake G,' in New Castle County, DE. This is a public lake that is within reach of Wilmington, and Dover, in about 45 minutes. It has a shallow, muddy, muck bottom, with most of the pads so high and thick, you can't reasonably fish them. Add to that, it is the color of chocolate milk, and had a water temperature of 62-66 degrees throughout the day that we were there. There is no deeper spot in the lake than 4 feet, in the main body, and the rest is all 1 1/2 to 2 feet deep, Everywhere that is, except for the shore, which is 5-12 inches! A front is getting ready to move through, and it rained the day and night before we arrived, for several hours. Kurt vonBrandt has a Spinnerbait, Buzzbait, 2 different makes and colors of tube baits, a Senko, and a crankbait rigged on 7 foot 'G.Loomis'and 'St.Croix' rods, with 'Shimano' and 'Daiwa'reels, spooled with 14-30 pound test line by 'Berkley 'and' Spiderline'. He has 2 spinning rods rigged with a 3 inch MisterTwister Grub on 12 pound test, and a 4' 'Centipede' in watermelon on the other.

'THE TAKE OFF'

6:45 am.-We arrive at the lake, with no boats there. We launch and start fishing.
7:15 am.- I decide that in a shallow muddy lake, with that water temperature, and the angle of the sun this time of year, and being that all the other fish were fairly active and large in the rivers, I put on a buzzbait, as I felt that would be a good search bait for me in the back, doing most of the observing and filming.
7:28 am. -Kurt vonBrandt is using a Terminator Spinnerbait in 3/8 ounce, double willow blades, with a Golden Shiner Skirt,: a bass swirls at the bait in 8 inches of water, but misses, Kurt immediately throws a Gary Yamamoto 'IKA' tube, right where it swirled at the buzzbait. He does this several times, but it doesn't strike. He said,' I know there's bass in this area now. so I have to figure out what they are doing right?' He then moved the boat into shallow water about 20 feet ahead, being extremely quiet with the trolling motor. He said, 'I need to see if they are on beds, or are making beds, or traveling together, and if there are any baitfish fry in the area' I questioned him further, while throwing the buzzbait and a spinnerbait in the pads. I said 64 or 65 degrees is traditionally thought of as an almost perfect temperature to catch some prespawn bass on spinnerbaits, Buzzbaits, walking baits,( Jerkbaits, if it was clear enough), Flukes, jigs, in wood/pad combinations; that should be deadly on these bass out here in the deeper pads on the edges near the channel, and in the mouths of little bays and inlets.

He said 'I think you are right normally, but because this is so shallow all over, and always muddy, and the same depth, and I think that because of this, the bass need to spawn sooner, because of the lack of places to do this successfully later, as the pads grow up so high above the surface, and are so dense, that it is almost impossible for the sun, or anything to reach them, in this 1-2 foot jungle. I think after generations of spawning here unsuccessfully many times, that they (meaning the guarding males, and the larger females), ' have been programed to just go on beds earlier than some other lakes, or even most rivers, but I think they are in closer to the shores, in whatever bottom is the hardest, and has the best water conditions, whether it is on the North shore or not.' I was skeptical, but we went in anyway, me switching back and forth between the buzzbait, Fluke, and spinnerbait as we went in through the pads. He moved into within 20 feet of shore, and was throwing a 5 inch 'Senko,' and a 'IKA' Tube, and a Spinnerbait.
8:10 am.-Kurt vonBrandt lands a 1 1/2 pound bass on the spinnerbait, he says 'It's a male' guarding or even feeding on what has hatched'.
8:15 am.- I hook a 2 pound bass in the pads on a buzzbait, the water temperature is 66.
8:30 am.-Another bass in the shallow shore mixed with pads and wood swirls at the buzzbait, but doesn't get it. It is too thick to use a trailer hook.
8:45 am. -Kurt vonBrandt lands a small bass on a Senko. He says 'They're in this area.' If I could see their beds, this would be easier.'
9:05 am.-Kurt vonBrandt lands a bass on a 'Sala Tube' back in 8 inches of water. It is 14 inches long. He says' Another male, I know these females are close, but all the area is the same. I think the bigger fish will be in the best areas, on the shore with sun most of the day, and some kind of wood mixing with pads and grasses.' He sees a Carp about 15 pounds, jump out of the water in front of the boat, he says 'Sometimes the carp are with those bass!'
10:25 am.- I catch a 2 pound bass on the buzzbait in real shallow wood,.
10:32 am.- Kurt vonBrandt throws a Rat, then a Tournament frog, in some unconventional ways, and Says 'I just had to prove to myself that they weren't out here in the pads'. He throws a spinnerbait in the area for a few minutes.
10:46 am.-Kurt vonBrandt sets the hook, and lands a 3 pound bass from the shallow wood on a 'IKA' Tube in smoke. He says 'I saw that move, I know they're in there on beds, or even finished!'

I said 'Do you really think that all the bass are in that shallow water, and some of them are already on and even off the beds?' He said, I have seen times when the bigger bass were on beds as soon as the water temperatures got to a steady temperature of 60-65 degrees, with the sun at the proper angle.'
11:45 am.- we work the outside edges of the channel on the way to some of the other shallow wood in the lower half of the lake. Kurt vonBrandt throws a spinnerbait, and a 'Sala' Tube into the pads. I throw a Chartreuse Mann's Baby 1-minus, no takers.
12:05 pm.-My arms are starting to hurt from repetitious casting, but I bear down, and keep fan casting the area. Kurt vonBrandt flips a tube into a tree in 6 inches of water, a catches another 1 1/2 pounder. He fishes the area hard for the females, but no takers.
1:06 pm.- The wind starts blowing harder, and it starts to drizzle a little; Kurt vonBrandt sets the hook on a 2 pounder, and says' That female's in here somewhere'.
1:28 pm..- We work the edges of the road, and dam with spinnerbaits, 'Senko's', and 'Sala' Tubes'. Kurt vonBrandt sets the hook on another 1 1/2 pound bass. What's that? he says, 5 fish at about 11 or 12 pounds? I say 'Somewhere in there.' He says, that's not good enough, I need a kicker fish now.'
1:55 pm.- I keep alternating between a fluke, crankbait, and buzzbait, but no takers.
2:00 pm.- Kurt vonBrandt says' I wouldn't have much time left now if this were a tournament, I need a bigger female.' He moves the boat into position of a large laydown, one of the few in the lake, and makes 10 or 15 casts down each limb of the tree. He says,' this is the spot, you just have to present it to them at different angles, and speeds, and keep bumping the logs.'
2:05 pm.-Kurt vonBrandt says' OH YES!', and as I turn, he says 'Get the Net,' I see the bass, and it is at least 5 pounds. He fights it through the pads with a 7 foot Medium-Heavy action St.Croix rod with 25 pound test Berkley Iron Silk. I net the bass, and bring it into the boat.
2:07 pm. -We take several still photos and video shots, after weighing and measuring it. It was 22 1/4 inches long, and weighed 6.4 lbs. It was a female, and appeared to have laid the eggs. The belly was still big though, so without damaging the fish, we forewent further inspection and released it. He said 'There's the kicker.' Now I would be going in with what, say 5 fish at 15 or 16 pounds?'
2:15 pm.- Kurt works an identical piece of cover a few yards up and lands another nice bass of about 2 pounds.
2:45 pm.- He says' If I had figured that out a little sooner, we could have upped the total by a few more, maybe some bigger females earlier.'
3:00 pm.- We leave for the office to S&K Guide Service, and get ready for a client in the morning.

Kurt is a great guide, and will be moving up through the ranks of bass fishing soon enough. When he was 18 years old, he had already won minor club tournaments, and the Delaware State Sportfishing Tournament, many times, and was reading and learning about bass, the other 150 or so days a year he wasn't fishing.

In 1999, we fished over 200 days a year, and guided a little, and started entering more team and local tournaments. Kurt caught on quickly, and won the 1999 Big Bass World Championship, placed 3rd and 5th in several other tournaments, and also won the largest bass that year for Delaware. In 2000, we concentrated more on refining his techniques in public and private lakes, and rivers, such as the Potomac River in Maryland, the Elk, Northeast, and Bohemia, and the Nanticoke river in Delaware. We also took a few trips to the Withlocoochee and the St.johns River in Florida, with some other trips to Stick Marsh, and some other famous, and not so famous Florida Lakes and Ponds.

He was able to figure out what to do quickly, and learned all I could teach him by 2000. He then entered the 'RED MAN TOURNAMENTS,' now the 'Walmart Bass Fishing League,' and finished 3rd for the entire year, besides winning at the 'Potomac Super Tournament' and taking Big Bass honors with a 5 pound largemouth! He then qualified in the finals at 'Lake Gaston.', and went on to win the 2001 Big Bass World Championship/DE, and competed in the finals at 'Table Rock Lake' in Missouri.

He also won the Delaware State Sportfishing Tournament again, and has caught, and guided to over 500 bass in Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, and New York, in the last 5 years, that were over 5 pounds, and gained first acceptance into the 'Everstart' events.

He has been guiding again this year, while fishing some BFL Events, and some Team Tournaments, and still managed to find enough time to take care of the house, plan a wedding, and get married.

Look out for Kurt vonBrandt as I start to guide more and more, and he takes over the tournament end. Expect to see him having a prominent role in bass fishing in the years to come. I have caught my fair share of bass over the last 35 years, some just ounces off the State Record in several species, from Delaware to California. I have fished with some guys that were pretty darn good, but Kurt vonBrandt is a fishing machine!!., He also has a natural ability to read the fish and the water conditions, and he never stops. Look out, there's a new kid on the block!

Cabo Fish Report
October 23 - 28, 2012

WEATHER: I really don't know what to say except to mention what a great pleasure it has been to once again get through the heat and humidity that summer time brings to us here in the southern part of the Baja Peninsula. When our nighttime lows stay in the mid 70's and the daytime highs stay in the low 90's it is about as good as it gets, compared to what we had for the past three months. In another few months we will be even cooler as the temperature at night drops to the low 60's, but this weather I would prefer to have year round! We had very light clouds this week and while the beginning of the week started off a bit windy, by the end of the week we were experiencing just light breezes. The week started with moderate winds from the northwest, picking up in the afternoon, and ended with light breezes from the northeast in the morning, dying to nothing in the afternoon.
WATER: On the Sea of Cortez side of the Cape we had water at 84-85 degrees inside the 1,000 fathom line most of the week, with the exception on Friday when a hot spot of 87 degree water formed across the 1150 to the 95 spot and out to the 1,000 fathom line. For most of the week there was a good temperature break at the 1,000 fathom line as well with the water to the northeast being 2 degrees warmer than the water to the southwest. Surface conditions on the Cortez side were great all week as well with swells at 2-4 feet early in the week and dropping to 1-3 feet later in the week. On the Pacific side we were seeing the water between the San Jaime and the Golden Gate Banks at 84-85 degrees with swells at 3-6 feet early in the week and dropping to 2-4 feet later in the week. In between the Cortez and the Pacific we had a late intrusion of cooler water at 82-83 degrees, coming in to almost three miles of the arch. The water was slightly cleaner on the Pacific side than it was on the Cortez side this week.
BAIT: Same bait report as last week. Sardines could be had here in Cabo this week, probably due to the demand of the tournament boats who use them to catch skip jack and small Yellowfin for bait. A scooped bucket would set you back $25, but they were in much better shape than the Sardines we were getting earlier in the week from bait boats farther north. Caballito and Mullet could be had easily at $3 each, and there were frozen Bally-hoo for $3 each.
FISHING:
BILLFISH: Our big money Marlin tournament season is over now that the Bisbee Black and Blue is finished, at least the tournaments for big Marlin. Next week is a small tournament with the Trip Advisor website members, then the W.O.N. Tuna tournament in November. Next year we will see more tournaments that focus on Striped Marlin in the Spring. Statistics can do funny things to your thinking, and as I did last week in the report, this week I am going to lay a few more on you, based on the three day Black and Blue tournament that just finished. There was 106 teams fishing three days for 318 boat days on the water, with big Marlin as the focus. There were 67 billfish caught, 1 Spearfish, 4 Sailfish, 4 Black Marlin, 19 Blue Marlin and 39 Striped Marlin. Based on this, it took 4.75 boat days to get a Marlin this week. Pretty sad stats, and when there was only one Marlin caught over 300 pounds it almost makes me cry. (The team that caught the 2.4 million dollar fish is not crying!) Once again I have to remind you that the stats for normal charters would be much better as the focus for most of the boats in the tournament was big Blue or Black Marlin over 300 pounds, or numbers of smaller sized Blues or Blacks. None of these boats focused on Striped Marlin, which is the most common species here, as evidenced by the comparative number caught during the Tournament. In conclusion, while the possibility of getting a Blue or Black to the boat was fairly small, the chances of hooking into a Striped Marlin, if you focused on that, was fairly good, probably at twice the rate of the Marlin hook-ups experienced by the tournament anglers.
YELLOWFIN TUNA: With the Black and Blue Tournament going on, and since Tuna did not count in any category, the pressure on the Tuna was pretty slack. Not that there were many out there, but those that were caught were pretty decent fish. There were scattered pods of Dolphin to the south 30 miles and to the west the same distance, and some of these pods produced a few Yellowfin to 35 pounds, but once again the focus for big fish was on the Gorda Banks area. Charter boats drifting, slow trolling or flying live bait off of kites were getting the occasional bite from fish that occasionally exceeded 300 pounds (314 for one boat) but most of them were between 100 and 200 pounds. It took a while, you had to have patience. One of our friends worked the area for two days and managed to get a nice 158 pound fish.



DORADO: The Dorado bite experienced a sudden drop this week and I am not sure why. Plenty of charters were working both the inside and the outside area of the Pacific coastline and most were lucky to get three or four fish, there were no really large concentrations found. Boats that did well were ones that were willing to lose their first fish to get more. Leaving that first fish in the water and slow trolling it 30 feet behind the boat until more fish appeared was the trick, and it works much of the time. We had one fly-fishing client this week who did very well, it's often hard to get enough shots at a fish on the fly rod, but if your target is Dorado, this method as well as heavily chumming with Sardines works very well. On the Cortez side there were Dorado appearing in fair numbers off of the Cabo Del Sol area as tournament boats were heavily chumming the area early in the morning attempting to get those big Skipjack for live bait. With 30 or 40 boats tossing Sardinia in the water the Dorado came in and there were quite a few caught. I didn't see any really large Dorado come in, or hear of any large ones, most of the fish were between 10 and 15 pounds, but there were a couple of big fish caught by tournament boats, at least I assume they were big as the teams reported the hook-ups on the radio before reporting them as non-qualifying species.
WAHOO: The full moon did produce more Wahoo than were caught last week. During the tournament our team caught a 60 pound fish the first day. While not worth any money in the tournament, it sure was good to eat! Other boats reported hooking up Wahoo as well, and there were a decent number caught by the charter fleet. I did hear of one boat getting two 30 pound fish one day. The action on these fish was scattered and not concentrated in any one area.
INSHORE: The slow down in the Dorado bite had many of the panga anglers crying this week. Last week was absolutely great, but there was a dearth of action off the beach this week. One of the saving graces was that area off of Cabo Real early in the morning as the numbers of white Skipjack and scattered Dorado at least produced action. For the normal inshore species such as Roosterfish, Jacks, Grouper and Snapper, the action was slow as well. Fishing on the Cortez side of the Cape just off the beach produced most of the action as this was the side of the Cape that was holding the Sardinia schools.
FISH RECIPE: Check the blog for this weeks recipe!
NOTES: In a couple of days I am going to produce a short blog with some number crunching concerning the tournaments we have just had, so check it out. I had a great time fishing this week, just wish our team, “Sporty Game” had gotten our big bite on Thursday hooked up. Oh well, next year! We did get that nice Wahoo as well as a Dorado while bait fishing, so there were fish in the boat, just not the right kind. I would like to thank Mary for keeping the blog updated with the tournament results while I was out fishing, great job honey! Also, a big thank you to Mark Bailey for turning me on to the group “Two Tons of Steel”, this is the first time I had heard of them. Based out of San Antonio, they are described as a “rockabilly” group. However you want to describe them, they are fun to listen to! Until next week, tight lines! Oh, don't forget that Cabo has changed their time already, last night we set our clock back when we went to sleep. This is one week earlier than in the states, so don't get confused when you get down here!

GORDO BANKS PANGAS

San Jose del Cabo



October 28, 2012

Anglers –



The Los Cabos area is now bustling with visiting anglers, this is peak fall
season, weather conditions are once again ideal, after last week’s deluge
from Hurricane Paul, the horizon remains clear, days have been sunny,
cooler early in the morning, but by afternoon temperatures warm to 85
degrees. Over 700 anglers participated in this year’s Bisbee Black and Blue
event, look for many stories to be told, as there is always some sort of
drama involved. Sportfishing charters are traveling in all directions now,
from the Pacific grounds to Los Frailes, in search of that special catch of
a lifetime.



There are more persistent winds now starting to blow out of the north,
typical fall conditions, maybe a bit earlier than normal. This combined
with shorter daylight hours has also contributed to a cooling trend for the
ocean, now averaging about 80 degrees outside of Cabo San Lucas and up to
82/84 degrees in the direction of the Sea of Cortez.



This annual cooling trend of local ocean currents is what usually triggers
the elusive wahoo into becoming more active. We have seen more wahoo in
recent days, still not a wide open bite, but considering the heavy pressure
and still slightly off colored post storm waters, there has been some
decent action found for these speedsters. Some charters reported as many as
a half of dozen strikes and up to four wahoo landed. The ‘hoo were striking
various baitfish, as well as trolled skirted lead heads or Rapalas. Most of
the wahoo landed were in the 20 to 40 pound class, there were some small
juveniles mixed in, nice gesture to release these, also there were at least
several wahoo over 50 pounds accounted for. We look for this action to peak
during the next couple of months, wahoo typically stay in the Southern Baja
area until the ocean temperatures drop into the lower 70 degree range,
which on a warm water year can be into January.



This past week started off with a flurry of big yellowfin tuna being landed
off of the Gordo Banks, there were several fish in the 250 pound class
weighed in, with others in the 100 to 230 lb. range. There were reports of
a couple of super cows over 300 pounds accounted for by private
sportfishers. There has been a better chance now at hooking into a big tuna
as a big marlin, which are the species that tournament teams are searching
for, only marlin weighing over 300 pounds count in the Bisbee Jackpot. The
yellowfin were striking on chunk bait, sardinas, chihuil, skipjack and
cocinero. The tuna bite slowed during the heavy pressure of the Bisbee,
this next week will be the time WON Tuna Jackpot teams search out and plan
strategy for the big Tuna event slated for the second week of November,
looks like this year our local teams will have an advantage, having the
knowledge of how to fish the Gordo Banks when the fish become spooked form
heavy boat pressure.



Normal everyday charters have been fishing off of Santa Maria for a
combination of skipjack, yellowfin tuna, dorado and wahoo, this action is
all within several miles of shore. The yellowfin tuna have had to battle
the aggressive skipjack to reach the bait, most of the yellowfin in this
area have been 10 to 15 pounds, striking on sardinas. Dorado and wahoo are
also hitting baits, as well as lures being trolling around the perimeter of
the charters that were drift fishing with bait. The Iman Bank was another
popular area being concentrated on, slightly larger grade of yellowfin, up
to 25 pounds, with skipjack, dorado and wahoo in the vicinity. There has
been only an occasional amberjack, cabrilla or dog snapper off the bottom.



The bait situation for obtaining live sardinas always become stressed
during this busy period, on some days the commercial netters found sardinas
off of the PLC Marina jetties, but this has not been as consistent as the
sources found from Palmilla towards Santa Maria, this situation has a
direct bearing on which direction the boats launching out of La Playita can
practically reach once they do secure their daily bait rations.



The combined panga fleets out of La Playita, Puerto Los Cabos Marina, sent
out approximately 212 charters for the week, with anglers accounting for a
fish count of:

7 sailfish, 2 striped marlin, 42 wahoo, 165 dorado, 512 yellowfin tuna,10
amberjack, 3 dogtooth snapper,18 pargo, 6 sierra and 1600 skipjack .



Good Fishing, Eric
