Click here to enlarge Tip&Trick Description 1: My first time fishing Lake Cachuma was this last weekend April 27th 2002 and I will let you in on a secret this is a fine lake with great staff excellent fishing and abundant campsites. I was very impressed with the guys at the marina ( Jim and Allen) for giving us great tips for fishing their lake without holding back any information necessary for a first timer to their lake. Right out of the marina he told me to troll straight thru the center of the lake and we would be sure to get bit and he was right. Less than 10 minutes from the launch ramp right where he suggested we caught the first fish a nice largemouth bass about 3-4 lbs and lost the first hook up as we were surprised to get a strike so soon. This fish jumped clear out of the water and fought like a much larger fish than it actually ended up being.

On the way to the next spot Jim and Allen had given us directions to we saw 4 deer on the shore grazing like they owned the place (which I guess they did) We set our sites on the points jetting out along the far side of the lake about 200 feet offshore. Instantly off one of the points both the reels went off as we were trolling rainbow trout colored Yo-zuri Emperor Minnows and L-Jack series lures on 4 and 6 lb test at a fairly slow troll. First fish fell off but I managed to get mine to the boat and into it for supper that evening. We did a turn around and went right back over the same spot and sure enough another missed opportunity. Back we went again with another 2 strikes managing to get one in the boat for a better meal for the 3 of us eating that night. Back and forth again for nothing and we decided to give the opposite bank a try.

We steered clear of them and moved again about 200 feet off the shoreline and continued our trolling pattern slow and parallel to shore. We started noticing the wind more and more as we headed back towards the launch ramp noticing there was only one jacket made it to the boat and it was mine! We again managed to get another rainbow to strike right out of the water it jumped and then a small battle and into the boat it came. We were done now 1 fish each for dinner and one released bass in about 2 hours fishing time. Now it was back to camp to make dinner and get warm. A jacket is a good thing to bring on any lake as the wind always decides to blow in the afternoon. I must tell you that the guy's at the marina tackle shop know their stuff about where the fish are biting and what they are biting on. Without their tips we may have come home empty handed as several others had that day. Good luck if you get a chance to fish Lake Cachuma and be sure to say hello the the great guys at the tackle shop near the launch ramp it may pay off big time for you in the long run.....Fish on! <'))))><
