Launced about 7:30am - (give all those in a rush plenty of time...)
Set up troll towards West shore - did a couple of laps with Mira shad, firetiger rap, frog needle and Taz... - got first fish while making turnaround near dam - needle fish 1.5 colors moved out towards middle of lake and got one on Taz. took a lap down red cliffs towards crowd back in the flats - stayed away didn't want any part of the pack... marked numerous small schools in mouth of Santiago so started doing laps around there. TheTaz got 7, needle 1, fire tiger 1- humm - Only started using them in So. Cal this year. The hot colors were White with Pink spots, and sort of fire tiger colors in stripes Ended up with 9 fish from 1.5 to 2.5lbs for 2 of us.
The lightest fish in the money was 2lbs 14oz. Later at cleaning station guy brings up a 12lb fish - but wasn't in the tourney.... :rofl: !:Bawling_e :zelfmoord
All fish were healthy fully finned fish fought good - Awesome weather and not too bad of a crowd.... There's Plenty of fish to be had...

Birdman - we were turned on to them :-)madfire: ) a couple of years ago by a guy who uses The larger ones for Browns....! Yep... the elusive ones. We've had pretty good success with them up in the Sierra. they also work good on the rainbows... I stock them in my shop, and Jimmy just got a few of them at the Irvine's tackle shop too. My shop is:
Fisherman's Hardware in Long Beach - Savon Tackle has them also (what doesn't Savon have??)
See ya on the water....

Thanks again for the 411 Gerk . I have been in your store a few times back in the day . Great shop . Maybe I will stop by after the FH Show this year and get a sammy at Joe Jost's as well .

I lived in Long Beach in the 90's while I was in college at LBCC and LBState . I was impressed back then how much stuff was crammed into your shop for fresh and salt . Although, I was usually just buying grubs and lead heads back then . Fishing for me was dock hopping for spotties in Alamitos Bay after classes . I do remember getting some freshwater stuff for one of the many Sierra backpacking trips i did in college . That is all we could afford .

We had several cheap appartments off of Ximeno Ave . , Obispo Ave . , Orizaba Ave . , ... All great area's ...LOL

Moved to Seal Beach post grad to get out of the hood . I witnessed the Rodney King riots first hand . Crazy shit .

Anyhow , sorry for digressing . Thanks again for the lure 411 . My collection is going to have to get bigger now . :picknose:
