View Full Version : Toplining Tahoe - 11/17 - Sherry's 7.2# Brown

Well after going to Cabela's Wednesday and buying new trolling rods and reels, we were dieing to try them out. *We headed to Tahoe this morning for a little toplining. *We launched at Cave Rock and headed towards Zephyr Cove area. *I caught a 8# mackinaw first thing this morning(check it out on the mackinaw board), then it went dead for a while. *I switched Sherry's pole over to a broken back rainbow rapala and about a hour after switching her over it sounds like her pole snagged bottom. *She starts reeling and this thing didn't want to come in. *It took out 60 feet of line in the original take down. *She gets it within about 50 feet from the boat and it decided to go airbourne. *As soon as it saw the boat, straight down it went. *After about a 10 minute fight, it was in the net. *This was Sherry's first ever Tahoe brown, it weighed in @ 7.2#'s on our digital scale. *I'd say we broke in those new rods and reels pretty good. :D *Great day toplining. :) ;)

We started out the day with this beautiful Sunrise

Chick, the DVD should be ready next week(I gotta quit fishing and going to Cabela's or it would have been done by now ;D) and I'll post how to get them after Thanksgiving. It looks like we're going to fish Pyramid Thursday and if we do any good we might have to stay at Crosby's and fish Friday. Did you get that GPS hooked up??

Hello Topaz Tom,I thought that Cabalas wasn't opening until the 19th.I called their 800 number and that's what they told me.That's sure is a beauty of a brown.What time of day did you catch those monsters? and what size bb rapala was that rainbow?What is the charge for the launch ramp fees at cave rock?

Cabela's opened to the public yesterday, we had a special invite for Cabela's Club Card holders on Wednesday. My mack was caught first thing in the morning, and Sherry's brown was caught a little before 10. I believe it's the F-13, it's pretty big. Cave Rock charges $8 this time of year.
