Welcome to the family Markho! There are several fantastic lakes for Kokanee Salmon and Rainbow Trout just minutes from you. If your interested in either of those, let me know. I'll hook you up!!!

I use the NRS Endurance splash pants. Obviously on the kayak, but I've used them as rain pants when banking it in the rain and on boats in the big blue. They work great. Easy to take on & off, they breathe and have kept me dry in all situations. Fairly inexpensive to at $130.

The best tip I can give you is to start with #2 Gamakatsu Drop Shot hooks. Most pre packaged lures come with #4 Octopus type hooks. The drop shot hooks are thin wire and have a different bend to them. They penetrate way better than any octopus or Mosquito hook I've tried. When you snell the 2nd hook, keep 1/2" gap between the eye of the 1st hook and the bend of the second.

Well Kevin, you convinced me to try to make some of my own kokanee lures, but now I am trying to figure out a good source for all the beads and spinner blades. Any suggestions?

[Hit Amazon, fisherman's warehouse and general search for Koke stuff. Tons of stuff online

Ron is right. I've purchased a lot of my materials from Fishermans Warehouse here in Sac.  If you have a decent Fly Tackle shop near you, they should have what you need. There are a ton of tackle shops on line to use. I just prefer to support the local guys when I can.

Wow, what a fantastic weekend! Perfect weather, a plethora of amazing food and a bunch of good people. I was great seeing old friends again and meeting a lot of new people.

Big thanks to Brian for getting this set up again this year. The 3rd Annual BB FnC is already on my mind for next year! From talking with others there, it's on their mind too.

Only took a few photos. I'll post them soon. As usual I was too busy talking, drinking and fishing to remember to get the phone out. I know that others did, so please post what you got.

I never got a count, but I'd guess that 15-20 people decided to join in fishing tournament.
Here are the results:

1st place for best limit(10) by total length-----Plug-n-Jug. Ok. I admit it John, I bribed the kokes to bite my hook!

Longest single Kokanee----Bree. She took that with a nice 13-3/4" beauty.

Longest alternate specie fish----Brian. He brought home the prize with a nice 14" Rainbow trout.

Thanks to all those that donated swag to the prize piles!!!

Thanks again to all of you for making this such a wonderful event!!!


stocking up

Good price! Don't forget the Tuna in oil! And the garlic. And the Anise. And......Gezzus, this is so addicting!!!

She has both of those things! if it isn't too much trouble, she would love the opportunity to try one. I have a tandem that we both use also, but certainly nicer in your own yak!

My mom is coming up with me! She recently moved to the area and is very interested in getting a fishing kayak of her own. I told her you guys are a great group to ask all the questions she has!

does she have  a license and pole? I could bring an extra Yak if you want

Awesome! Just make sure she has a PFD! We'll have plenty of tackle for her to use.

I have to bail on the weekend, some family stuff came up. Have fun out there everyone!

Bummer Matt. What site were you in? Did you cancel your reservation?

Al, be sure to pack the SPF20,000 sun screen!!! If I remember correctly, you Lobstered yourself last year!

None of the boxes had keys with them last year. I brought some last year and will bring at least two full tubs with me Friday morning. I don't have any kindling though.

Reminders for everyone!
There are bears in the area. Use the Bear Boxes to store your food!!! There were several coolers lost to them last year. Ask the Ranger for a key.
Bring firewood and Beer!
