john chiarpottiNovember 19th at Ultimate Bass University along with Toys for the Troops Kids

Fall fishing in our foothill lakes means giant spotted bass loading up on Trout and Kokanee before the long winter and nobody understands this better than John Chiarpotti, one of the top guides on the Mother Lode lakes and owner of California Reservoir Lures Thrasher Swimbaits and Pro Guide Jigs.

John is going to be talking about fall turnover jig fishing and catching giant spotted bass on swimbaits. No matter what lakes you fish this information will help you.

We will also be collecting toys for the big Toys for the Troops Kids toy drive that we have assisted CBAF with for the past few years. The raffle this month will cost you an unwrapped toy for a boy or girl that will help make Christmas for a child of one of our troops fighting for our freedom.

Speaking of monster fish our friends at California Department of Fish and Wildlife will be bringing a special guest to the seminar so make sure you bring your camera phone you will want a picture with her……she is famous!

The seminar is Tuesday night the 19th of November at 6:30 and the cost is free so bring a fishing buddy.
