My friend Gene St. Denis form Blue Ribbon Charters caught a 10 pound hookjaw brown on Tahoe yesterday, trolling a silver Bomber plug on a topline. Pro-Cure shrimp and prawn oil, 200 YARDS of 8-pound Maxima, around 2.5 MPH. Photo will be in the Sniffer paper soon, maybe here too.

200 YARDS OUT 600' back
Wow I thought 200' was alot. At Stumpy I would hardly let out and have to turn around ;D

Looking forward to the picture WEEZ. That Gene St. Dennis seems to have a nose for those big boys. ;D

200 yds. out. I think I'd be about spooled with my ambassdors. Better get some bigger reels. Lets try and get a bigger one than Genes on Friday. The roads ain't looking bad now. I think I can get the boat up there. Bob

Nice job Dennis and thanks for the report Weez. The only reels I have big enough to hold that much line are my salt water Penns. That must have taken some time to fight and bring in. I was told you run at least 500 feet out on Tahoe.

Fishin reel, just get a winch. Do they make electric reels? Then you can just fight th efish for the last 100'. 500' is too much like work...

Thought maybe the brown trout were on a hot bite on Tahoe and any jimoke could catch 'em... Ha Ha. Fished 8 hours today for big fish and caught one, a 17 pound mack. Only 150 yards of line this time, trolling a big rainbow trout pattern AC Plug over the steep, deep sandy holes south of Zephyr Cove.

Nice fish Weez! Isn't it great when we fish all day knowing we might draw a blank and all of a sudden the fishing gods bless us with a big one.. Larry

Here is an exerpt from the Nevada Appeal fishing report,
LAKE TAHOE - East Shore:

Gene St. Denis: "They are picking up rainbows (1-4 pounds), trolling flashers and minnows at Logan Shoals and Deadman's Point. The shore fishermen are picking up rainbows from the Cave Rock Landing.

On Tuesday, I went out alone and trolled in front of Elk Point at a depth of 25-40 feet. I was trolling with rainbow-pattern Bomber Long A lures.

At about 3 p.m., I caught a 29.5 inch (9.5 pounds) brown.

Earlier, I had caught and released a 22-inch and a 33-inch Mackinaw at that same location."

We have been picking up bows at Deadmans and Logan on J-11 Raps in rainbow and brown trout. Nothing at all on minnows. The bow bite seems pretty active. Maybe need to get my setback in order, I have only been going back 300-350 feet.

Nice fish Weez, that is amazing patience.

We have been picking up bows at Deadmans and Logan on J-11 Raps in rainbow and brown trout.

Just southwest of Southpoint, about 300 - 400 yards offshore, there is a pinnacle that comes up to 40' from deep water. It's a bit tricky to troll, but I've caught a few Macks there in early Spring. I don't get a chance to try it this time of year, but it ought to be real good for Bow's; especially since they've moved into the Logan Shallows. No 200 yard setbacks though...

If you're in the canoe, you can get away with only 300 feet of line. Also, if you're in the canoe you are nuts going all the way to Deadman's. They call it that for a reason; what crazy ******* gave you that idea?

DJH! Good to hear from you! A friend of mine discovered that spot off Logans last year and I have yet to work it. Sounds like a shallow downrig deal.

Hey, not to hijack the thread here, but we caught a seven-pound brown today on Tahoe! I fished with a client in his boat and we caught a nine-pound mack as well, topline trolling AC plugs on 150 to 200 yards of line.

Uhhh Weez....I think it was you!

Just kidding, I was in TahoeJeff's sweet ride!

Thanks Jeff!

Time for some Puddersno.
