It is a fact that very few competitive bass anglers know much about the Sacramento River and that it is a very healthy fishery home to 3 species of black bass – largemouth, smallmouth and spotted bass. But those anglers willing to put in a little bit of homework followed by a regiment of patience and persistence, will quickly find out that right in their own backyards, in the close proximity to home for many, lies a bass fishery that is a virtual sleeping giant.
On Saturday, November 3rd , after an over 25-year hiatus, The 10th annual Thunder Valley Outdoors/2012 Future Pro Tour Classic will host the first day of its year-end championship in the shadow state capitol’s doorsteps, and challenge its field of only 90 Classic qualifiers like never before. And the stake are high for those competing in this year’s classic extravaganza, as first prize will be the keys to a brand new 2012 Ranger/Evinrude Z118 package complete with Humminbird, Minn Kota, and Navionics electronics worth over $35,000 dollars! Because this first day venue represents a body of water most everyone in the qualifying field has never fished before, on Thursday, Oct 18th, the Future Pro Tour is presenting a seminar at the Fishermen’s Warehouse in Sacramento to help qualifiers prepare for challenge, featuring none other than angling guru and custom lure designer Alan Fong, who has spent a lifetime fishing the Sacramento River for all species of fish – including black bass.
In this seminar Alan will outline:
· The most productive areas on the Sacramento River to fish – that hold bass
· Understanding the Sacramento River’s current and using it to your advantage
· Where to locate the Sacramento River’s largemouth bass population
· The best baits, line and weight considerations
· Tide fluctuations on the Sacramento River, and how they will affect your patterns
And much, much more!
For those of you preparing for the FPT Classic, that are looking for some answers to difficult questions regarding black bass fishing on the Sacramento River, this is a great opportunity to get some valuable information before the event, that just may help put you in the Classic winners circle!
The seminar will begin promptly at 6:00pm so get there early to get a good seat! Everyone that attends will receive some FREE soft plastics, “hand picked” by Alan, that will help you catch bass on the Sacramento River, PLUS there will be a drawing where one lucky attendee will win $25 dollars worth of baits “hand picked” by Alan that will help you catch bass of the Sacramento River!
