My friend and I played hooky from work to hit Pryamid for the day (our 6th trip this year). Got to the ramp at 07:15 with 3 trucks parked with no one in front of us or behind us. While setting up at the ramp my buddy realized that he forgot his fish finder. We had no choice but to fish old school good thing we know the lake very well. We pretty much had the lake to ourselves. Just a couple of boats and very few shore anglers.
My buddy counted 28 and I counted 27 to the boat with a lot of doubles. When we found them it was on. The biggest was just over 6 1/2 pounds a lot of 4 pounders with a few little 19 inchers in the mix. It was definitely a spoon bite, they got 80% of the fish. We trolled the spoons on top set back 300' and 400'. On the downriggers we ran 3.5 mag lips, u20 flat fish, GVF draggins, and few other things. It was hard to take photos because when we got into them it wasn't just one. But I did manage to get a few.

Excellent. Spoons are under rated as a trolling tool. They can be deadly.

I thank you for showing some colors that you were doing good with along with the fish porn. Playing hookie is an all American thing back to the days of it's conception of a nation, there are many here the benefited from those who lived through the tough times in America to leave us here with their legacy, that being the ability to fish and hunt for food........Jetspray

My favorite is a U-20 white or a Maglip in the same size/color, I paint the top black with nail polish, add eyes, and put some shiny taco tape on the bottom. That cop car combo works for me.........Jetspray

Sweet, nice report.

There is no lake like Pmid, glad you got in to them. Planning to hit Pmid on Sunday.

Great report!

300' to 400' set back are set backs I used on Tahoe (sometimes longer) with great success. I have never tried it at Pyramid though. I'm going to give it a try Friday hopefully. I started trolling top line at Pyramid with a 100' set back and now I'm at 170' set back. Seems the more line I let out the more hits I get?

But with 4 line's out the back and no fish finder it was what worked without getting tangled. Downriggers were at 10' and 20'. We would troll close to shore and try to bounce the lower one off the bottom.

It's amazing what an angler can do without fishfinder. I remember fishing Tahoe one time with my buddy years ago. I just bought my first fishfinder. An Interphase 20/20. I was all into playing with it and watching the screen, pushing buttons etc When he said " See any fish on there" Nope, none. He says "look at your rod". It was pumping and my face was red and he was laughing. Good times....

Most of them are elaborate flashlights in the water, they show what your ran over and side to side, more expense more flashlight. I use mine mainly for speed, depth, and temp's anyway. On occasion I look at bait balls too.......Jetspray

It was just 2 clueless dudes with some beer and good fishing!!!

I have two handheld GPS units and use one of them in conjunction with the Lowrance as a backup. My eyes are not what they used to be and the boat is 20 ft long, so I can pick up the handheld and see what speed. Since my kicker motor is controlled by a Panther I can walk around a little with the controller in my hand with the speed set on the control arm of the kicker........Jetspray
