In 2007, bass fans everywhere looked to the California Delta to set new catch records for the Bassmaster Elite Series. But it was Clear Lake that came through with the biggest catches, topped by Steve Kennedy's 122 pounds, 14 ounces. Kennedy was a novice with swimbaits going into that event, but left a believer. He set a four-day tournament record with his catch that lasted only a year but that opened the eyes of the bass fishing public everywhere.
Clear Lake is poised to reclaim its record in 2010. The Elite Series anglers will have learned from their experiences in 2007 and be ready to capitalize on their time on the water. Everyone expects weights in excess of 100 pounds for this tournament.
