Switch to circle hooks. You can also make them barbless with a pair of needle-nose pliers. Just crush the barb. Much better for catch and release fishing.

Man haven’t been out in a while. Did a lot of lake fishing last year here local in SoCal, silver wood lake got the strippers dialed using lead core on the troll. Here’s a pic of my kids halibut he caught off of Huntington Beach by the oil rigs last season. That’s my uncle holding up the fish. Fishing off a 16’ Klamath same boat we use at the lake.

Here’s a vid of the bunker pods that the stripers are after. Huge pods for miles and miles.

And some more

You can see the pods all out in the distance in this vid and when they get busted by a striper.


Action was slower than the day before but we still caught some nice fish.

I loved to fish on the ocean, but now I have to make do in fresh water. Here's some fish that I caught today while walking on water.
Hybrid Bluegill, 0.89#. Only kept the smaller ones, tossed the bigger ones back. (to grow bigger)

A pair of Northern Bluegills. Will weigh them before they get cleaned.

Real nice ones. Question: are you in very dark water? Those fish are much more pale than the ones we catch up here.

No, the water has about 6' of visibility. But the snow that was on the ice had started to melt, and with the milky ice and the 18" of snow that was on the ice cut light transmission to minimal levels. Best jigs were the ones that had some glow paint on them.
