Micro Boat Trolling Adventure!
I got out early this morning on Lake Tahoe with my mini 10′ jon boat (equipped with a flame throwing 2.5 hp motor) for a little trolling action. When I decided to put two lines out, things got interesting in a hurry!
Gear used in this mission:
MegaBass Vision 110 in the Table Rock SP color
Lucky Craft Pointer 78 in Rainbow Trout
Lucky Craft Pointer 78 in Aurora Green Perch
How to: SF Bay Halibut Trolling
