Headed up to big bear this weekend staying at the MCCS camping lot, renting a pontoon one of the mornings. Not looking for honey holes probably just going to troll around what do I do to let the boys get some bites?

I have only fished from the shore. We used power bait and got a stringer of trout.

Can’t help you with fishing there but there is a great family friendly hiking trail on the north side of the lake near the Stanfield cutoff. Easy to find, small parking lot. Just FYI. Have a great weekend.

on the mountain
Find were fresh water enters the lake or near an airator . Have not fished there in years. Check with the rangers. Get a local map. I have had good luck with rainbow power bait. Yellow, green an orange. Good ole night crawlers, all on a slip sinker with swivel set up lightest leader possible. Have fun.
