Anyone fish June Lake recently? I am heading down Sunday. Any hot spots and bait? Should be fun.
ya i went like a couple weeks ago during my semiannual camping trip. got double limits everyday for three days on rapalas, trolling flies and drifted nightcrawlers. try around the beach area close to the campground and in front of the "the big rock" (self explanatory; believe me, u will not miss it) on the highway side of the lake, also try deep water in front of private docks. try to get a boat, it will give u more options and keep u away from the mosquito's. oh and of course powerbait and all the usual stuff works but i dont like it cause i like to c & r alot.
Set up "On the Marks" - Icy Sign, Old stool, Dead tree, etc. Use fwd & aft anchors. Light line - 3/4# leader about 18" (top quality line) with water filled clear bubble/small treble hook (#14-16) and a good "floatin' bait". Cast out, let sink, allow strike to "load up the rod" and then crank - Enjoy. Works best with plenty of kids on the boat.
Thanks fellow Bloody Deckers! I am going to try it out! I post results in week!
Early and late bites, deeper water mid-day. If there are gonna be more than a couple, the pontoons are the way to go- a bit more $$$ but comfort is well worth it.
Question, why a water bobble vs. a sliding egg sinker. When the bobble is filled, isn't it just like a weight anyway?
It sinks a lot slower. It will cover the entire water column and you will probably be hit on the way down. Also, if there is any vegetation on the bottom, they don't hang up as easily as the weights. Bubbles are definitely better. Also, take a red/gold 1/6oz Thomas Bouyant. It is the best/most fun way to fish up there. 2-4lb line. Just cast out and reel in with a medium speed. Very simple fishing and gets the job done. Way better than bait. Good luck.
pm me a fish report as ill be going up the 9th of sept. to silver lake!
Pumpkinseed mini jigs by the reeds on 2pm always gets it done for me
