Caples Lake Ice Fishing California Video Report
Went up to Tahoe last weekend and did some Ice fishing on Sunday. This was my first time every ice fishing in California. I picked a spot by the spillway, but wasn't marking many fish on the Marcum and no bites. A couple of guys came out and said I should try in closer like they were. I started to catch them like crazy after that. Caught three rainbows on a gold kastmaster with meal worm and 7 on the Jaw Jacker with a small jig and tiny piece of worm. They were really going after that set up. The guys who told me to try by them missed a few and caught one. Said they caught 11 the weekend before between 4 guys. Seemed like I was the only one with the hot bite on though this weekend.
So if you're heading up there try by the spillway and very close to shore, about 5-10 feet deep.
Check out the video for some ice fishing action.

fishing by spill ways is not a safe idea. any time there is moving water you need to take extra precoutions.

glad you got in to them. thanks for the report.

If the Lord's willing, You'll be Blessed.
