Shasta Lake Report 02/12/2018 plus a valuable lesson learned

Recommended Posts

So the wife and I decided to take advantage of her having a rare Monday off.  We headed up to Jones Valley and launched about 8 am; like normal, the ramp was already full of trucks and trailers.  We fished for about 3 hours before the wind took off and it became no fun.  The wife and I caught 19 total, 17 bass and two 15 inch rainbows.  We did most of our damage using a ned rig with shad colored hula stix.  I did catch a few using a weighted wacky rigged senko deep, 30 - 50 feet, but they were the smaller of the bass caught.  All in all it was a fun day.


Now for the valuable lesson learned.  I imagine most people on this forum already knew to do this, but I had to learn the hard way.  Always have a backup clip for your kill-switch.  Ours broke about 2 hours into the trip and I had to drive back holding my kill-switch in place and fighting the wind.  I now have 3 clips in the boat just to be safe.
