That's awesome Captain Tahoe! You'll be chartering year-round?

I'd love to get out there with you and a couple of buddies. Go snowboarding one day, and hook into some fish the next. Sounds like a perfect weekend. to me.

The neighbor across the street is also a guide, next to him is an avid fisherman, on my left is my lifetime neighbor of 60 years (she's upper 80's), on my right is the chiropractor. Ironically, they all think I'm in need of being committed for fishing in this weather. Oddly enough, I draw a blank when trying to come up with a defense. How about your neighbors Gene?

I'm planning on going to Tahoe for a few days in late March. Is there still a brown trout topline troll bite that time of year? Never caught a brown before and it's on my to do list for 2014.
