Today was a really good day on Shasta Lake.  Its like it finally kicked into its summer season and the fish were really aggressive.  Thats been the case this week and I see no reason whay it shouldn't continue.  I hit most fish running downrigers at 70-75' and trilling 2.2-2.5 mph.  Dodger spoon combo's worked great!  the Trinidad Tackle 6" dodgers in gold or silver with a Popped Eye spoon were on fire again today.  No bend in the dodger and about an 1/8" bend in the Popped Eye Spoon does the trick!
