Ming Lake Fish Report for 2-24-2023
The Bass action started to improve this week
Ming Lake - Bakersfield, CA (Kern County)
by Chad Burton and Chris Borden
The Bass action started to improve this week with more fish reported than weeks past. Bass have been coming on Keitechs in sexy shad on an underspin or ball head, and the new Yamamoto Senkos in green pumpkin on a light Texas rig or drop-shot setup. One of our contacts also reported solid action with weightless flukes and small Ike’s jigs. It’s been a few weeks since the last trout plant here. Holdover fish have been going for minijigs, spinners, pinched crawlers and garlic scented Powerbait. Bluegill have been going for wax worms, meal worms and red worms. The crappie bite is still going but has slowed a bit. The best Crappie action has been in the late afternoon with small live shiners and crappie jigs with nibbles.
