Today I fished Shasta Lake with Stan Kulak of Trinidad Tackle.  We trolled #3 Optimizer Spoons and found a pretty good morning bite.  We hooked several multi pound browns, and of course, hooked a giant that got away!  I'm catching less than 10 fish per trip, but I am targeting bigger fish so thats not unexpected.  Its the slowest time of the year for me so why not spend it chasing trophy trout on Shasta Lake!
