View Full Version : Pine Flat 12-14

Who would of thunk with all the bad forecast that
the Flat would be a little chilly but nice and sunny
on Sunday morning.
Its getting ready :o
Finally, 4 trout and lost 4. All 16" to 17" fatties.
Looked like they were loaded with shad. Trolled from the wall
to La Fevere. Best areas. My newly painted Trophy stick
was top producer again.Got 1 on a chrome speedy shiner as well.
There was tons of activity by the Dam opening, hope they are
the kings :-/. I havent caught one since early May,ouch.
Water was 57.5 Degs. And still very low.
There is a skull and cross bones flag on top of the island just outside
Deer Creek marina.So thats the water level.
Next trip i will target Kings only.
Tightlines, Kevin.

WTG Kevin! I saw Powderman on his way back from the Flat Saturday. In a PM he said he marked some Kings but no nibbles for the morning troll. He said they switched to toplining to avoid the skunk and finished with some nice trout just B4 noon.

Soon the Kings will bite again.....soon. (in my best George Clooney impression)

Assuming those are the kings.
I hope. Wish i had a Rigger cam.
I have some crazy ball troll contraptions.
Watch fish on the screen come from along ways away
to take a look,but no takers >:(
Those kings can really piss you off.
Could be another breed though.
More R/D is in order.

Thanks for the report Kevin, been wanting to try it since I'm only 30 min. away. Still waiting for the king report though.

I think Kevin should be giving everyone one of those special lures for x-mas my address is 303 ezie clovis ho ho ho. :D Sounds like you did well kevin I cant wait till I have a weekend in town. Next weekend we are going down to some property just below ensaenda, but as arnold says ill be back. Good report were all the trout you caught just planted or were there any holdovers.

Lets put together a Pine Flat king " witch hunt "..............
Lets say Jan. 10th.............
There i said it .

What depth did you see the big marks?

I'm all for a king witch hunt, so, I'll see if I can hitch a ride with somebody. Not looking forward to re-commissioning my boat until the water rises. Too hard to launch at the all too shallow Deer Creek ramp. I do have wadders....if push came to shove.


12-16-2008, 08:48 AM
Edd the marks and activity were from 65' to 90'.
It will be interesting to see what that witch hunt
proposal will get. I have to read the berryessa reports
to remember what a king looks like.
I just guessed on the date :-/

12-16-2008, 11:31 AM
Ok I will show up for the search and destroy mission let me know the date Kevin and I will give it a try. Maybe we should put something in the pot for big fish ??? Set it up Kevin. ;)

A King hunt!
I would like to be part of that.

Edd you are welcome aboard my vessel. I only have 1 DR and a fairly inexpensive Lowrance, but the DR is yours for the day if you like, I dont mind catching trout. My Pine Flat King "total catch" is less than I care to talk about anyway, so maybe you could show me a thing or 2?

Sounds like fun!

12-16-2008, 07:31 PM
By the way...........
Is it okay to drink beer when we fish????

12-16-2008, 08:12 PM
Hope it's OK to start earlier than the 10th. I need a few times in the water to work out the bugs on the boat (cause thats the way I ROLL).


12-16-2008, 10:01 PM
Kevin, That sounds fun...Maybe I will get off my but and get my radio installed by then.....

12-17-2008, 07:35 AM
Hey Kevin you started it now. You better make some ground rules looks like Doug is going to pre fish it this ok or do we have to wait for the day we fish. Looks like I might want to jumb in Dougs ride he said something about rolling something. :D I have never really fished for the kings at the flats , what do you use, is a rolled shad a good way to go ???

Probably should start an official " Mini king fest/ witch hunt "
thread on the King/Koke boards.
I could use the help as un official head witcher in charge.

OK.....I'll volunteer for the UHWIC position (things are slow at the office) and start the thread on the Koke/King board. I'm gonna call it; "2009 KING Witch Hunt At The Flat"

Love the name.
