Been catching lots of striper keepers 19in up. Today Surprisingly pulled out a 25in King Salmon from shore😱 was awesome to see a different fish coming out of there besides stripers, sturgeon and rarely halibut but Salmon was a complete unicorn coming from this spot🤭 remember if u dont catch anything at this spot or any, try to collect any trash u see around to keep clean and safe for yourself, nature and other anglers! Happy fishing, stay safe and good luck to everyone😊🎣

I hit up lake chabot as often as I can. Mainly fish from the bank and hit up spots between alder point and the boat house. I’ve had luck and have caught some good size bass but also get skunked plenty. Not sure when or where they spawn and I thought this platform wouldn’t be a bad place for bass fisherman to communicate and share current and local info about the lake. WDYT?
