Anglers Reel In Macks When Wind Cooperates

Species: Mackinaw
Location: Lake Tahoe,

Spring mackinaw fishing has been very consistent at Lake Tahoe. The only stumbling block in recent days has been the wind, which has been strong and gusty.

“I got out this morning. It was still breezy but fishable and we did well,” reported Mickey Daniels of Mickey’s Big Mack Charters. “I had five anglers on the boat and at one point we had 6 rods hooked up at once. The fish we got were good quality macks ranging from 5 to 7.5 pounds.”

“My last trip on Tahoe was a bit slow, but overall my clients have been catching a lot of lakers,” related Rick Kennedy of Tight Lines Guide Service. “We’ve been trolling glow spoons from 150 to 260 feet deep at the north end of the lake and limits have been the rule most days.”

Gene St. Denis of Blue Ribbon Charters has also been enjoying limit style fishing while trolling minnows teamed with dodgers. Most of the fish being caught by St. Denis’s clients run 3 to 6 pounds, but fish to 29 pounds have been caught on his boat in recent days.

The team at Tahoe Sportfishing has also been getting in on the mack action while working around the southern end of the lake. They are scoring limits just about every day while trolling minnows teamed with flashers.
