Our correspondent Craig Adkinson reports from his trip to Nevada’s Pyramid Lake:
The spring spawn means a wide-open bite. The fish are aggressive and fight so hard.
All fish were caught photographed and safely released.
I used a Phenix Shikari Trout Rod custom wrapped by Wide Open Hookers.
Okuma RTX, and Helios 25-s reels, Spooled with Seaguar Red Label 6-pound and 4-pound test lines.
I drop shoted a Chartreuse Green Lunker City 3-1/- inch minnow and or a Smokin Jigz Minnow in Sacramento Perch pattern.
I also did very well with an Owner Mira Shad “PINK” color. All Hooks were Owner jigheads, Owner Mosquito hooks, or Owner Stinger hooks.
I used a larger size with a Voss Weight Banana style for bass fishing to throw it as far as I could. Pink Trout King Jig also did very well.
I also did very well with an all-Black Marabou Jig custom-tied buy Diego Guamboas from Shimano Pro Staff, and Savon Tackle.
Wiley X. Polarized Glasses did the trick “BOSS” You could see schools of 30 to 40 fish come threw at a time. Some schools held at a minimum of 100- 200 cuties.
It was freezing you will need a Hoo-Rag so you don’t get wind-burnt bad!
