Had a good day today on the Big Lake. Trolled Trophy Sticks with Pro-Cure Trophy Trout and spanked quite a few mackinaw. These were caught at 160-220ft at 2.1mph in the area of Dollar Point. See the YouTube video here:

That was cool Steve. Looks like things are picking up at Tahoe. Do you perfer the 5.5" Trophy Sticks over the 6.5"?. I have some 6.5" Baby Bows, seems like you have to troll them at least 2.5mph to get the right action.

I agree Ron. I think the 5.5 is my favorite size at this point. I like the look and action and it trolls well at my preferred speeds of 2.1-2.3mph.

Great video Steve. The Trophy Sticks are proving to be one heck of a lure.

If you adjust the eye of the trophy stick down it will have more side to side wobble which makes them unique from other stick baits out there. *If you adjust it straight up it will have less wobble. *Small adjustment incriments though. *Don't wrench it one way. *Once you get the tuning down you can adjust them to have more wobble or less at different speeds. *I can get in more depth if you want and don't get it. *I get those big ones (6.5)'s to wobble real nice. I will provide an in depth how to tune the sticks for different conditions and preferences video link on this board very soon.

Trout Tamer,

When you get your video posted here I'll add a link on the FAQ's of the Tackle Board. I'd like to see a real tuning video with explanations of how and what to expect from the results. Great idea.

TT,
Any information on tuning Trophy Sticks would be much appreciated. I really like the 6.5" stick baits, big fish big baits thing. Getting the 6.5" to perform at slower Mack speeds would be a big plus.
