    Re: Rod and reel help!!

    Those standard abu garcia 6500 round reels work great. Good smooth drag, clicker for the bite alarm, solid construction.

    Either that or go with something like an older green shimano curado 300....

    Re: Rod and reel help!!

    7'9" okuma SST back bouncer, it's like $80, can't go wrong. Sensitive tip and enough meat on the lower end to work a fish quickly.

    Lots of the main rod companies make a similar rod. Lamiglas,...

    Re: Tahoe Tagged Rainbow

    Last year my one trout fishing expedition was at Fallen Leaf. What a rat fest of emaciated little pilot peak cutts. Damn near every one we hooked and landed was snake like in appearance. Mack food...

    Re: Help fishing Tulloch

    Powder S-waver 168 got me lots of lookers and the occasional taker when I fished there. Also try spooks in the evening around the docks and housing areas. Fun lake.

    Re: 2019 Trout Opener.

    Good call on that with the worms. Where itís legal, they canít be beat.

    Re: Striper & Tides

    Not saying a flatfish won't catch stripes, but that's more of a salmon lure than anything. I've seen guys stick stripes on them, but it's not the norm. Anything can happen though, just might have...

    Re: Steamboat

    Itís mud. Unless youíre bait fishing with 5oz of lead, save yourself the time if youíre planning to troll or toss lures. The sac just wonít clean up.

    Re: Walnut Grove Area

    It's still dirty, wouldn't say chocolate milk, but it's not far from dark milky tea colored. Still a bait fishing game, the current at the Georgiana split is still raging. River looked like it came...

    Re: Stripers in the Moke ???

    IMO some predation is a positive for those smolts. They have to learn at some point that their lives are going to be faced with everything wanting to eat them, might as well start it early, probably...

    Re: Rod suggestions

    Get a lamiglas mark wilson trolling signature series or an Okuma SST back bouncer 7'9". Sensitive tips that telegraph debris easily but have power for high speed trolling. The salmon rods work great...

    Agreed. I'm hoping to have some fish stories written up here soon too.

    I should be running up and around that area within the next several days to check some water.

    Re: Does Swimbait Size Really Matter?

    No need for sturgeon sized rods. For most baits sub 4oz, you can get by with a heavy salmon back bounce style rod. Back bouncers are usually rated to vertically drop 6oz, so they work really well...
