Ohh I meant BPS - Online. I almost never buy gear at a store unless I really need something ASAP and it can't wait. I would go to longfin, but the traffic from Newport Beach to Orange after 5:00pm on the 55 is insane. Last time I went it took me almost 45 min just to get there. Since i'm stuck behind a pc all day it's just easier for me to do everything online.

Hey guys,
So it looks like you all have the tackle issue covered. Everything mentioned before are excellent choices.
( Hell, half of that stuff was made just for that Lake) So I am not going to add to the aforementioned list except to say, I highly recommend flouro for your main as well as lead line. nuff said.

Rather I thought I would give you a couple of tactical hints....

I used to carry three rods
1) The Iron,..This rod was usually a bit long and med fast to cast spoons and spinners. 2-4lb
Normally if you can get on the water early this was a good starter.
2) Bait... a shorter and slightly slower rod to fish, Duh baits, (you know, nightcrawlers, Power bait, cheese ect., ect.,) But because it is about artificials and catch and release, perhaps this is for...
2a) Crankbaits... I like the pins minnow or a small deep diving shad rap 4-6lb this was one of my favorite tactics because the bite is so violent!
3) Mini jigs.... I have yet to find a good rod to do this with. (something longish and slowish?) I was never a big fan of this technique. It reminded me to much of nymphing. But it is VERY! effective. Heck somedays this was working so well it was ridicules.... fish close to bottom, 2lb only!

The fish will be fresh plants. They will be ready biters. My guess is they will be spinning around in a big circle in front of the docks, or the ramp, or both. you shouldn't have too much trouble locating them. There will be at least fifty bobbers in the water to help you see the bites.


Just a point of interest. I have caught at least a dozen fish here, over five ( up to 12 ) ALL OF THEM on a big black, bushy, ugly fly creeped along the bottom on an 8lb flouro leader. Go figure.
