Words From The Angler…..

“Hey Chris,

I noticed you use jigs a lot in your videos. I have only had marginal success on steelhead with jigs, but I have caught some huge Lahontan Cutthroats.

1/4 ounce black marabou jigs on 2/0 Gamakatsu heads, fished on a fast hopping retrieve are the killer setup.

I also noticed that you mentioned in a 2007 article that striper fishing sounded pretty good when the salmon fishing sucked… In the Sacramento system you can multi task…

Best of luck, Mike McNeilly”

Check out the anglers in the background up on ladders in the lake…..unbelievable tactic!

  1. WOW Mike……those are some SLABS!!! 🙂
    Man that sounds like fun, hopping jigs for those giant Cutts.
