Lake Perris continues to shine this summer


PERRIS – The bass bite as Lake Perris seems to really evolve from one week to the next this summer, the fishing has been overall-solid for anglers making the necessary adjustments in line with that evolution. Some weeks have size, some have numbers and some have both.

            Brad Jones reached out to Western Outdoor News after two weeks at Perris that was “not wide open, but solid numbers and good quality.” He was able pop an 8-pound, 1-ounce largemouth. Jones has been getting the job done with 4-inch swimbaits, worms on a drop-shot and Carolina-rigged Brush Hogs.

Another reader touched base with WON with very similar results. That was Cypress angler Marc Flores who was fishing with his cousin from out-of-state, and that duo teamed up for 15 bass. Flores said their “best five” went 26 pounds, and that included an 8-pound kicker that fell for a drop-shotted Roboworm. They caught the majority of their fish on drop-shots and jigs.

UP WITH THE JONESES – Brad Jones looks rightfully stoked after hauling in this 8-pound, 1-ounce Lake Perris football.
