Default Lake Shasta Post Tournament

So sorry to everyone that its taken so long. I've been on the road for quite a long time and without internet. But, now that I do have some time let me take the opportunity to fill you in on whats been going on.

I ended up 9th overall and improved my weight each day as I figured out the fish much better each day. My last day of the tournament I was even culling 2lbers, I wish they would have still had the top 10 cut because I really think I could have gone out and caught 10+. It was a good way to start out the year because I got good points towards re-qualifying for the Forest Wood Cup.

The majority of the tournament I was fishing a flick shake worm in watermelon candy in varying depths down to as deep as 50 feet. The most important factor was fishing very slowly. I fished slower than I ever had with some casts taking as long as 5 minutes. My better fish seemed to come out of deeper water on isolated rock piles. I caught all my fish on a 732 powell spinning rod with an abu garcia cardinal spinning reel and Trilene 100% flourocarbon 6 lb test. This is my typical setup for this technique. I use this because the rod is super fast with a soft tip that is perfect for the flick shake. This rod has good backbone for the hookset as well. The line size was important because the Trilene is really easy casting and super strong perfect for dragging through rocks. The flick shake head i throw 75% of the time is 1/8oz because I like keeping the bait on the bottom especially when fishing that slow and deep.

I'd like to thank my sponsors for all their support. Jackall Lures, Powell Rods, Abu Garcia, Z-Coil, Monster Fishing Tackle, Eye Surrender, Berkeley.
