Today we fished Shasta Lake and were able to pull three limits of trout and salmon before the forecasted 113 degree heat had a chance to interefre with our comfort levels.  The morning started out a little slow and I didn't see fish where I normally do.  A small adjustment about 30 minutes into the trip and we found the schools of bait we were looking for.  Non stop action ensued and we were having a hard time keeping lines in the water.  The trolling depth remained consistant at 90-95' and our Mack's Lure UV Sling Blades and Humdingers did it again!
