That is why many ramps have “no power-loading” signs. Results in a hole with a ridge around it.

Re: 22' NFGFC SCHEDULE

I hear release is close. The new President had a baby on 1/3 and is a bit sleep deprived...

Lake Tahoe

Anyone have fishing experience there? Favorite river? Probably looking at a 1 day guided, fly fishing trip. Likely south Tahoe, but not fully locked in yet. Not really interested dropping 100’ for lakers in the middle of the lake unless someone tells me I should reconsider. Caught plenty of those wh...

Re: What was I doing wrong on Sunday?

Motor=registration in Florida

I chose my aluminum, 25hp tiller over my 22’ bay boat. Could have gone almost everywhere with both, but easier to fish and clean the small boat with a 2 year old.

Re: What was I doing wrong on Sunday?

Fished the rise Sunday with my son. Trout and reds both to 26”. Creeks and flats produced. Find hard structure and moving water, preferably not being thrashed by others.

Re: Dumb question-how to fish a gold spoon?

They all work. So do chatter baits. I like the larger AquaDreams. As slow as you can reel and not get snagged. If spinning instead of rocking you’re too fast.

Re: Sign the Pledge

I voted no on the gill net ban because it was an amendment. If I had been on the Fisheries Commission (or whoever oversees) I would have voted to ban or severely limit them. I also voted no on the pig crate amendment, class size, bullet train and all the other stupid shiz that is put on the ballot....

Re: Scamp Grouper--Fish I Have Yet to Catch

Have always found them in over 100’ and as deep as 300’. Found a limit of gags in state waters Monday. While they coexist to some degree, scamps are deeper.

Re: Juan sighting on Hoochie The Other Day!

Nice! My parents just moved to CSB, bought a 17’KW and my dad is reminiscent of his days fly fishing for bream in the locks around Lake O (and occasionally hanging big bass). The Hootch seems like a decent option.

Re: Huge Disappointment

Big trout have vicious head shakes, but usually only good for one run if you don’t put a ton of pressure on them. Xtra fast rod and loose. The drag. Let them wallow.
