Catching Halibut in the Bay
Halibut fishing in the summer months is a great way to escape the lake lice and enjoy catching some hard fighting, great tasting fish!

Catching Stripers in the Delta
Stripers are my favorite fish to target. There are plenty of fish in the delta system to make a successful trip almost year round. The winter months are a little slower than the spring and summer but limits can be had all year.

Understanding Fish Behavior
How you approach the lake will determine how many fish you catch. Always approach the water with a goal in mind. Clearly understand the behavior of your target species.

In-Line Planer Boards
Using in-line planer boards is a method used to get your lure presentation out to the sides of your boat.In line- planers like Yellow Bird by Yellow Bird Products and the TX-12 planer board by Church Tackle Co. do not require the use of a mast, they clip directly to your fishing line.

Brown Trout : Luck or Skill?
This is Lunker Hunter and this place is all about sharing our secrets. A couple browns here and ther may be luck but catching browns most of the time they are targeted is pure SKILL! Myself and a small group of friends here in the Placerville area pride ourselves on being able to sucessfully target Brown trout pretty regularly and target ONLY browns during certain times of the year. When targeting browns we catch only a small handful of bows, macs, etc. So I'll share a few techniques we like to use.

ZACK! & 707Fisherman Great Sturgeon Derby Adventure
Got the News from Rich Tipton that a Catch & Release Stugeon Derby was being held Saturday at the Martinez Marina from 6am to 4pm and even though it was short notice I just had to support it and do everything I could to attend. The theme of this event is an excellent tool for getting the word out to many to practice Catch & Release.

Great Fishing Spots in the area of Placerville, CA
About a 10-minute drive just northeast of Placerville , in a town called Pollock Pines, is Jenkinson Lake . Jenkinson Lake is an ideal lake for fishing, camping, and mountain biking. In the winter and early spring, fishermen mainly focus on rainbow, brown, and lake trout. At a 3,500-foot elevation, Jenkinson Lake is the lowest lake offering the chance to catch a trophy lake trout, where catches of close to twenty pounds have been recorded.

Jig Fishing for Steelhead
When you think of jigs you think of bass or crappie jigs. You would never think that you could catch the fish of a thousand casts on one. But the truth is if you are using a jig/float and presenting it the right way, it will be the fish of 500 casts instead. Now when you use jigs you need to think about the water conditions, what type of water your fishing, and what time of the year it is.
