  1. Stan, you have any luck running those 8" Shasta sling blade dodgers for Kings or Coho?



    I use the Trinidad Tackle 9" they are made of Stainless steel can handle being bent for a bigger wobble. The other is made of Brass will crack or brake when bending. I know of two tournament boats using Trinidad's on Lake Michigan with good success as well as Salt water guys out here. Bigfoot runs a Dipsy the size of a trash can lip, nothing mythical. about it at all..it's all true 


  2. Came across this 12" flasher by Trinidad Tackle called the Beast it's 12" by 2 3/4" works great for Halibut wonder about those Lakers ?

    It's 100% stainless steel and salt water approved 



  3. When they are not eating feeder food, I would be those big boys live on sculpin sitting on the bottom.  Try a Gobie colored bait fished along the bottom .......when the feeder is not going off.


    Thanks Gill


    I sent an e-mail to a friend of mine who is the lead biologist for the lake to find out if there are any Gobie in Shasta. I should know by Monday when he calls me.

  4. Here is the deal. Shasta Lake is just 10 min from my front gate. Have fished this lake for over 60 years. The average Rainbow is about 12 to 15" , but the place I keep my houseboat there are two Trout pens with feeders and when those feeders go off you can see 12 to 15 lb trout going after the feed outside the pens. Way to many times over the years when one see's still water on the surface you turn off the motor and slide into that area you will see these big fish feeding on surface bugs.


    I have drug Streamers, spoons by every manufacture of every color and size known to man even used Anchovy, Herring whole, but every five or ten years you will read about some 10 year old kid hooking up a 12 to 16 lb rainbow off the back of a houseboat with a night crawler witch brings up I have never tried a worm harness yet.  


    These illusive Trout are called Eagle Lake Trout that come from Eagle Lake in eastern California . On Eagle Lake we use to use a florescent Orange Rapala with good success now days the fisherman are using a small fly... I have even tried both of these with no success....


    I know there is an answer some place that will help hook and land one of these toads   

  5. I have heard this question asked many times and still don't understand why it's asked. Kings and Coho are not boat shy let alone down rigger weight colors. When salmon fishing with a 6' to 12' set back how can color come into play at all  from a weight. Our best Coho fishing is in the prop wash ,


    Out west love the 15lb and up weights...pipe weights are a big thing for two reasons less blow back and hard to hang up on bottom.

  6. Stan, Is Lake Shasta finally beginning to fill up some? How about other lakes and reservoirs in your area?

    Up here all the rain is just getting soaked into the ground...There is plenty of water in Shasta for great fishing. Myself I love a low water lake that way the fish don't have as much room to roam. Shasta has 365 miles shore line.... Some of the real small reservoirs you can't launch, but there are plenty you still can.....People cry when it rains to much and cry when it does not..Have to remember these are all man made bodies of water and not natural.....You have an entire Ocean to fish not far from any point in the state, you have Tahoe year round as well.....Life is great............. 

  7. Out west here we are getting Snow in the Cascades, here at home it's snowing all the way to the ground (normal )

    But the Valley below us is getting the rain, these guys are acting like it's never happen before......
