Catch a Big Bass

Clear Lake is full of bass, so much so that it’s even been nicknamed the Bass Capital of the West. During the annual Clear Lake Bass Tournament, anglers compete to see who can catch the biggest fish, the daily winner earning $1,000. The heaviest bag of fish also wins $1,000. Meanwhile, the number of people who enter the contest will determine the amount of the first prize; last year’s was $5,500. The tournament will be held on March 12 and 13 at the Skylark Shores Resort in Lakeport. It costs $200 per team to enter. Register and get more information at
