June 7 - 21, 2019 VOL.38 • ISS. 13 For Trout, Kokanee & Kings Gold Star Offers Top Notch Dodgers! O ver the past few years I’ve found myself running herring dodgers from the Gold Star line up quite a bit. Gold Star dodgers feature quality hardware and consistent performance. For trout and kokanee, I generally got with a 3 7/8 inch Gold Star Mini Dodger. For rainbows chrome, watermelon and char- treuse are my favorite colors. When kokanee are the target I usually start the morning off with an orange dodger. As the sun gets higher I move to watermelon and then to brass. My hands down bar none favorite dodger for landlocked kings is the Gold Star 6-inch herring dodger. This dodger comes in a long list of colors. My first choice is chrome/prismatic tape, followed by glow white and UV watermelon. For kings, I generally run a hoochie or Ace Hi Fly Jr behind the blade, but at times I’ll run a plug cut anchovy tail.

APEX now available in New HERRING AID Color! #423 and #424 APEX Lures catch all species of Trout & Salmon! NEW FOR 2019! Uncle Larry’s Lures Under New Ownership! U by Paul Kneeland ncle Larry’s Lures are well known for their trout, salmon and kokanee spinners and have been catching fish in Northern California for years. Bob Muhlbeier of Sonora purchased Uncle Larry’s from his good friend John Yurkovich last fall, and plans on continuing the well-known brand. Bob grew up in Lodi and has been fishing all the foothill lakes and reservoirs since he was a kid. He always caught lots of trout and kokanee on Uncle Larry’s spinners, so when he saw the chance to buy the company, he jumped on it! All of Uncle Larry’s lures are built from real silver plate, gold plate and copper blades, not just nickel plate or brass like some others. The advantage of using the real thing is you get a much better, deeper flash with silver, gold and copper, and that came make a big difference in catching fish. Uncle Larry’s also feature UV colors, special Glow paint, and even the beads on the spinners are hand painted. Bob will continue producing the successful patterns of trout and kokanee spinners, Mini Squid lures as well as the larger salmon spinners and downrigger ball flashers. Coming soon will be a complete line of mini spinners for kokanee, in both single and double blade designs. A new website is being constructed right now to showcase the whole line of Uncle Larry’s products. For more information, give Bob a call at (209)609-7034. Uncle Larry’s Lures are available at your local tackle shop, or go online to www. 11 Kokanee Black Rods were designed with specially tapered rod blanks providing maximum power and durability for Kokanee fishing. APEX’s available in 7 sizes from 1 inch to 6 1/4 inches. 3813
