Damn! With this title I was hoping for a Godzilla thread.

So,.. if they are so good to eat why do you call them crappie?

Another lake that has been "messed" with by F&G in Cali is THAT lk at the bottom of Sonora pass.

A long time known brook trout producing lake- spring fed with abundant fresh water shrimp. It was THE perfect brookie habitat and produced fish over 8 lbs routinely. Yet, with the shrimp, the brookies were only vulnerable to lures during the start and end of the fishing season. It was hard to catch them during the summer months. So the "studies" were done, and they introduced a sub of Cut throats into the small alpine lake for a "summer" fishery. Cut throat being very varacious on the offspring of the brookies. Now, that lake isnt nearly what it used to be, and those GIANT brookies are far and few between now.

Can we not mention Kirman or Poole. LOL I don't know whether introducing cutties is the real issue or not. That lake used to receive almost zero fishing pressure. Now it's packed every time I head up there. I've only been fishing it for the past 8 years so I can only imagine how good it was back in the day. I personally like the stocking of the cutties and hope that they will one day offer fish as large if not larger than the brooks. I'm sure you know this but keep in mind those brookies wouldn't be there either if someone hadn't stocked them. Do you know any of the history on when and who introduced them? Either way those lakes up in that area are great places to fish.

Well, as far as i know they were milk bottle plants in the 30s and 40s.
I fished it mostly in the 70s. It was a secret really.. Then in the mid eighties, it appeared in the FISH SNIFFER magazine! Things went to hell after that.

Clearly due to management and not the fact that the human population of CA has doubled. We'd still have huge fishes is it weren't for that meddling guberment.

Maybe overfished by ignorant as#@&%es who didn;t catch and release? You know the ones, they like to eat wild stuff, but it is more likely to be thrown out after being wrapped in newspaper in their freezer for a year.

atchafalatio,,youve no idea of what we released there. And each of those fish in the pics that weren't released were consumed usually the following night. Light oil, battered in crushed ritz crackers flour, , pepper and garlic and a pinch of lowerys. Sometimes an added drip of lemon juice was added as they cooked.

LMAO. I see what you did there. Nice.

And no one uses newspaper anymore. Ziplocks are the new thing. What are you 80?

I get trolled occasionally too DMT..;-)


And Atcha,, ive fished most of that area- ran up the old river past TRACY once with a guy in a tournament. Had to stay on the gas to avoid shallow sand bars. The fish up in that current were STRONG! A three felt like a ten. One of the most white knuckle rides ive been on in the delta. I once saw a small bayliner crest the bow wave of an outgoing tanker in the main channel, and it broke in half upon "re-entry". Tossed the two guys like skippin stones across the water. They were just bruised up a bit..The boat,,well it was out there for a long whole after that.

Nice stippers by the way..
