Pro Bass angler, Tackle Tour staff member and publisher of the popular quarterly fishing magazine Bass Anglers’ Guide, Mark Lassagne from Martinez, CA has cashed a check in the three of the four FLW Stren Series events. Most recently on the California Delta he beat out over a hundred and fifty other anglers to place 16th. This latest finish anchors Mark for the 1,000,000 Stren Championship on Table Rock Lake.

Mark Lassagne places 16th on the Delta in the FLW Stren Series

Going into the event Mark said he had a he had a chance to win. “I’m catching a four to five pound average on a Black and Blue Strike King Pure Poison (like a chatter bait) tipped with a ten inch black Berkley worm. Mark was targeting pre spawn fish on the rocks with weeds between tulles. “I’m not getting a lot of bites but the ones I get are good ones, Stated Lassagne”. To catch these big fish you need high water and wind but the conditions are changing every day. Day one was good; Mark landed a five and a six pounder ending up with a little over 20 pounds. Day two was really tough he got a seven pounder first thing in the morning then the water was just too low (low tide) making it tough to catch anything until the end of the day.

Right at the end of the day Mark hooked up with a bunch of good fish including one about seven that was lost at the boat. “These fish have all been hooked so good I wasn’t worried about losing them “until now” I just played the fish too hard”. On day two he ended up with only 17 pounds. Day three with the soaring temperatures, no winds and falling water he had to change up.   Making several long runs Mark caught a lot of fish but the quality was not there, one four pounder early then it was run and gun until he had high water again. On the high tide he switched to a big Senko and was able to cull up to just less than 20 pounds. It was good event, not a win like he hoped but anytime you you’re in the top 20 in an FLW tournament, it’s good.

We’ll be watching for Mark at the FLW Stren Championship November 5th-8th
