Mike Nielsen of Tahoe Topliners is a very dangerous man…if you’re a brown trout, that is. This morning, he guided client Marvin Child to a new Lake Tahoe record brown trout. The fish weighed 15 pounds, 15 ounces and beats the previous mark of 15 pounds, 2 ounces, which was a fish that Nielsen guided a client to in 2008, which beat the previous record fish that…yep, you guessed it he guided yet another client to. Like I said, he’s a bad, bad man!
The latest record catch (which measured 36 inches), sucked down an F11 silver and black Rapala doused in Pautzke’s Liquid Krill.

This guy knows his stuff! He is the best guide on Tahoe!!! He won’t waste your time using lousy lures! He knows nothing works better then good scent and quality lures like Rapala! Plus he won’t creep out your kids like a few other guides on Tahoe have been know to do. No other guides I know of on Tahoe(Blue Ribbon, Mile High Fishing Charters, ect) can produce good browns like him!!!
WOW!! Always heard the best about that guy. True fisherman. Could we put it in the hawg of the month?

My son and I both fished with Mike…. I agree he is the best we had a awesome time on the lake with mike……………. now Frank Jr.and I want to fish with you JD … what’s our next move… we’re talking salmon on the Sacramento, Feather, or American, Rivers
Hey Frank! Everything opens up July 16 and then we’re off to the races all fall. I will be on the Feather until mid August and then probably jump over to the Sac until late October. Then, it’s time for the American.
