  1. Bit of Trivia , Vintage display card made for 'BOW BUSTER'S


    Received boxes from New York ,Found 3 old cards with poly bags of 6 egg cluster's stapled to the cards, sold at $ 0.98 each back then. Trinidad Tackle will be packaging 12 clusters per bag.



  2. Trinidad Tackle has acquired BOW BUSTERS established 1990 Webster, New York, The finest in clusters of artificial Rainbow Eggs.Trinidad Tackle's BOW BUSTERS will be out by Sept 28, 2016 We will continue the same great quality that has given Bow Busters their reputation as a top artificial egg producer over the last 26 years on the East coast & North West for Steelhead & Salmon




  3. Dave S and myself hit Shasta Lake this morning pulling Trinidad Tackle new Bee's. Great day on the water lost 5 that came unbuttoned picked up speed started hooking up good solid Rainbows. 1st Picture is Dave letting out a 500' Copper line Rod. Our fish all hooked up on # 11600 & 11573 Had Full Moon & Pressure change today making fishing a bit rough , All fish hooked up at 2.5 mph at 85'








  4. Good job Stan! I have a few of these in box from about 20 years ago. Good lure in the rough, and loves the extra speed.

    I sure hope these guys in Alaska,Canada,Washington, California and Oregon take to them the big water can be tricky out west at times. The bigger question is California & Washington hurt this year from lack of fish during the season. But we will be getting hold of retailers out your way as well.


    Out west they will have to be Barbless hooks you guys like Trebles we will adapt to everyone's needs..

  5. Trinidad Tackle of California has acquired OPTIMIZER trolling spoon established 1983 out of Webster New York. This spoon alone will run with most popular Salmon Plugs, Optimizer excellent for trolling at high speeds when searching for Kings. With wide speed range allows for effective rough water trolling.We will adapt the Optimizer with some West Coast King and Coho colors for the 2017 Pacific Ocean season.

    Hello Stan. 
    Just over 60lbs on your watermelon anchovie bait head. Thanks very much for the dodger as well.  FYI I attach dodger directly
    to down rigger ball with bait head dragging just behind it so your just
    fighting the fish when they strike.  That's what I love about the wire on
    your set up as it allows for perfect cripple roll without flasher/dodger on main
    2nd e-mail I received today
    Hello Stan ..... here is another  .... not quite as big but still a monster.
    We fish out of Kitimat in the Douglas Channel/norther B.C.
    Not unusual to get into 30's and 40's but much tougher to get into the 50+
    Can't say enough about your lure .... in the past we used anchovies in a
    conventional holder and often you just couldn't get the roll right
    particularly as I prefer the flasher off the downrigger.
    All the best.
  7. On Horsin Around, Dr Lou and Paul developed an interesting solution to the cluster effs. They let 600 feet of copper out of the chute, then about 10 feet of backing and a huge bobber. Next they let out another few hundred feet of backing and they placed the rod in the rack above the cabin. Whoever was new on the team had the honor of reeling this setup in every so often. Yours truly had the honor a few times,until the big bobber miraculously disappeared.


    Could you be referring to a Shark Bobber. I run the same set up out here using a Shark Bobber . It really sucks for the guy reeling it all in and about 1/4 way in the fish gets off

  8. Exactly, these guys are getting chubby's over 10-12# kings. I don't get it.......


    It's not so much about the size of the fish but the skills and techniques used by the winning team...Heck out here they have Kokanee tournaments these fish are the best tasting salmon not even hitting a pound each. 


    For landlocked Kings Ontario has to be at the top of the list , Land lock Kings in California may hit 5 lbs for the average catch, if you hit the big Salty lake they reach 30 to 50 lb range depending where you fish.

    It was down 160', now she is sitting at 70' down from full pool. The tourist and the valley people love it full. Best fishing is when she drops down 100' and better plus you go from 365 miles shore line down to 345' shore line.




    The water is about 4' deep at the point of the outside board . Picked up 16 Bass and 8 Rainbow Trout. Heck of a day at sea Captain
