    That’s a darn fine day in my book. Congrats on a nice trip.

    One tip I learned from Rick Kennedy, a long time guide, was to use a single long shank hook. He used tru-turn hooks which worked well, but any light wire worm hook seemed to work. They work well with hoochies, power grubs or gulp minnows as the set the hook back a little ways, but they’ll work with other rigs too. Not that answer to every situation but a good option for some applications.

    Glad you got into them. Thanks for the report.

    Oroville 7-02

    Fished Oroville today with my son. Consistent bite throughout the day with 80% of the bites on p-line pattern 266 sunrise squid tipped with anchovy. Used a sling blade pink or orange 14" ahead of the hoochie. Fished at 50 ft early and dropped deeper throughout the day to 75 ft. We trolled at 1.6 to 1.9 mph; the key being finding the fish. Once we found a group we would get one to three takers, but they moved out quick. One turn and they were gone. Ended up with about 10 drive bye, 8 LDR's, 4 SDR's and 10 in the box by 1:30, nothing big though. I've been running two #4 Gamagatzu (sp?) hooks on my hoochies, but seem to lose a lot of fish. Kinda new at fishing for landlocks. Is there a good suggestion for other more effective hook set up? Fish were around the green bridge and off the point immediately northwest of the bridge.
