The boys and I went to Tahoe today for a few hours to try out Jake's Trophy Sticks. Nailed a couple of nice bows right off the bat at Dead Man's Point. Nothing huge, but nice bows. I really think these lures are going to produce some nice fish. We are going to try them at Pyramid tomorrow. The sunset up there this evening was out of this world ;)

Saw Weez at the ramp when we came in. We both launched at 12:30 and we were the last two off the lake. He nailed some bows, a brown, and a nice 9lb mack.

Great day on the water Steve. Was that the 5.5" or the 6.5" trophy stick that you were using?.

We were dragging the 5.5" and the 6.5" in Rainbow Trout. Both fish hit the 6.5" (my son's rod).

Great pictures.

The hooks on the trophy sticks sure are tacky. Like one of your picture shows a lot of times there is more than one hook in the fish by the time it gets to the boat.

Is it from the thin sharp hooks or do fish hit these lures farther forward and get the rear hook in the side on the way in. By the way I am used to two trebles not three so it could just be my expierence.

using a 4.5" T S had the same thing happen, trebles two or more embedded in fish. Also did a number on my landing net. Now using a rubber meshed landing net.

Steve,

Nice afternoon of "lure testing"! ::) Looks like you and the boys were treated to a great time and unreal sunset. (there is just no resemblance with you and the older boy! 8-) )

Thanks for the picture and I wish you a fantastic 2008.
