SWEET!! How long were you out there for? I'm planning on heading out there this Saturday. Did you try nightcrawlers?

08-03-2006, 05:33 PM
I was out there for 4 hours and yes i did use night crawlers and i did get 2 kokanee on the crawlers but no trout. trout were all on flouresent red powerbait with glitter. sliding sinker rig with 30 inches of leader. Hope that info works for you good luck.

i was there today, trolled from ten to three and only one strike and a nice trout. as I was leaving I spoke to three old timers that caught fifteen yesterday and seven today. They told me they were trolling nightcrawlers(threaded) behind dodgers with shoepeg corn on the hook for all of them. now I am hunting for shoepeg corn and heading back. the one we caught was on a firetiger broken back rapala behind half fast flashers in the river opening at 40 feet deep. we tried everything(except the corn)

where do you find shoepeg corn at? all I could find was dyed shoepeg corn at a local sporting goods store, no grocery stores had the corn

08-06-2006, 05:20 PM
ksaechao did you have any luck? if so can you give me a report so i now what to do out there tommorrow?

The white shoe peg corn can be found at Raley's

The white shoe peg corn can be found at Raley's

I will have to try a different Raleys then as the local store here had none. is it canned or frozen? Jolly Green Giant brand?

08-06-2006, 09:24 PM
Canned, any brand will do. I've gotten it at Winco and Safeway.

08-07-2006, 07:37 AM
I bought six cans of green giant at Smart n Final. Right by walmart in Elk Grove. I noticed you can get shoepeg in frozen section with "butter sauce" I was going to try that if I couldn't find the canned. I will get a chance to try it out tomorrow or wed. will report. Any experienced corn fisherman out there? Any tips. I imagine you could put it on any lure, or crawler. Do you cover the hook with them or simply put one kernel at a time Tips?

08-07-2006, 02:17 PM
only a kenrel at a time if you are going to use corn...the fish can't digest it and by no means should it be used as chum

08-07-2006, 02:49 PM
what does it cost to get in to fish at Pardee now? I imagine they charge you for your vehicle and boat? do they add extra fees for dogs and a fishing fee like Comanche does?

08-07-2006, 03:48 PM
The shoe peg corn is by Green Giant and comes in a 11 oz. can. The Raley's in Lodi and Galt have them in stock. Put a single kernel on a single hook. For trout try soaking the corn in Pro Cure Krill oil... Good luck to all. (koke Machine)

As we speak I am dying my shoepeg corn with Pro-cure Kokanee corn dye. *Use one kernnel over the tip but not through it. *Also take a small amount in a small plastic container and chop fine garlic add pro-cure carp spit oil and I also add Kokanee special oil from pro-cure, Maybe over kill but I want to kill some Kokes and eat. * When I cook them there are already seasonned. ;D

Oh yes, *Fish can't digest corn and neither can we. ;)

08-07-2006, 07:45 PM
I believe it is 7.50 for vehicle, 7.50 for boat plus 3.50 per fisherman.

08-08-2006, 04:46 PM
Plus they charge for each dog also. I think the dog fee is $4.00 per dog.

08-09-2006, 09:07 AM
it cost $ 17.50 for me, my boat and no dog.by the by, I did really well on tues. from about 3 pm to 7.It took me about 2 min. to catch my first trout.a fat 16 incher.I started out at the cove just before the dam,and trolled a sep's water melon dodger in front of an uncle larry's in the chartruese tiger pattern with half a night crawler.I always ask at the marina how deep to troll.he told me 25 feet.pardee's my favorite lake and I fish it alot.my experience there is to add at least 10 ft. in depth to what they say and start from there.35 ft. was right on the money.I fished the next three hours consistently catching rainbows from the dam down past the barrel line and back.I caught 10 fish total, including a beautiful 22 incher which I 'm guessing (no scale) went about 3.5 lbs.I released all but the big girl which I cooked on the grill last night after her last swim of 18 hours in tereyaki marinade.anyway,I'd have to say cause of the numbers caught and the big'un kicker it was my best pardee outing in a couple yrs.
keep yer rod tips high, scouty-boy

Thanks for the report guys.......

Great report Scouty
This time of year you can fish Pardee all day without dodging wake boarders, water skiers and other lice. Haven't had a bad day at that lake yet. Course, I don't work there so any day is a good day.

Sorry, ended up going to Pine Crest instead. I'm willing to bet I would have had better luck going to Pardee... Spent a whole day at Pine Crest and only left with a sun burn :-[
