This report is just that. Not how vicious bass are, or how to drop shot, or any of that. This is a report on where to get em and what to use to get em. If you are not familiar with these techniques then message and I will answer those questions for you. I wont waste the time of those who already know.

The topwater bite at Uvas Dam in Morgan Hill, Ca. is still pretty good, the average size of every bass caught is 3.5 pounds with fish running as large as 5.5 pounds. The most fish seem to be coming on a Hart Double Buzz Bait, with the bigger fish being caught on a Kelly jordan topwater prop bait.

If you read one of my reports on The Money Spot at Uvas Dam you will see that this spot is very active and continues to be active for large topwater bites! Since I posted that report my son has caught a 5.5 pound bass on topwater and I have caught a 4.5 on the exact same spot, The Money Spot!!

Good luck and take a kid fishing.
