8/5/13 Lake Tahoe Kokanee and Mackinaw

We spent today targeting Lake Tahoe Kokanee on the South Shore. We launched at Cave Rock at 6:00 AM. We were marking fish between 80 and 100 feet on our Lowrance HDS 12. We dropped a Sep’s Watermelon Strike Master with a RMT Assassin Spinner tipped with Shoepeg corn cured with Pautzke Fire Cure. We were hooked up within a few minutes. After a short fight we lost that one along with the next 7 or 8 fish. About that time we hooked and landed a nice Mack on the same Kokanee gear.  Finally, we started sticking the Kokanee. On our way back we stopped off by Cave Rock and fished for Lake Tahoe Mackinaw.  We ended the day with limits of Lake Tahoe Kokanee and two Mackinaw. I lost count of how many Kokanee we lost but it was a bunch. The Kokanee today averaged 14″ however. one of the ones we lost at the boat was a good 17″ fish.
