Gary Miralles teamed up with Cousins Rods to design a new Pro Series Kokanee Rod. This 7'3" American made rod is designed for the serious Kokanee or Trout angler. This rod has a unique action not available in any other rod on the market today. Cousins and Gary designed this rod using three different materials giving it the softest tip possible then combined it with a stiffer more powerful lower end.

Gary Miralles and Shasta Tackle Company: A Northern California Success Story
Gary Miralles and Shasta Tackle Company: A Northern California Success Story
That is a question that Gary Miralles, founder and owner of Shasta Tackle Company, often asks fishermen and guides. Proof as they say is " in the pudding" or on the stringer as the case may be and Gary and his ever expanding lines of Trout, Kokanee, Salmon and now salt water tackle never fails to produce both fish in quantity and quality.
As a guide Gary would offer a guarantee of catching fish or the client would not pay and even with the toughest of fishing days Gary has yet to have to make good on the guarantee.

Several years ago I met Gary Miralles of the Shasta Tackle Company and a great friendship quickly developed. Gary's name is a prominent one among West Coast trout fishing aficionados. Gary is a life long trout angler that began designing lures during his teenage years. In 1988 Gary's hobby became his vocation. That year he founded the Shasta Tackle Company and started manufacturing trout tackle on a full time basis. These day's Gary's innovative gear holds a number of patents and he has risen through the ranks to become one of the west's most respected trout and land locked salmon guides. My interactions with Gary have had a profound impact on the way I approach trolling. I now view trolling as a systematic strategy that allows me to quickly gage the temperament and activity level of the trout. When Gary heads out for a day on the water the first thing he does is access what type of forage is available to the trout.
Color selection is one of the areas where Gary and I disagree to some extent. When it comes to imitating baitfish, Gary is of the opinion that you should vary the color of your baitfish imitating lures based on depth and the color spectrum. "When choosing lure colors consider the rainbow. Red is the top color followed by orange, yellow, green, blue and finally purple. Near the top of the water column reds and oranges are highly visible. As you descend in depth yellows and greens stand out well. In deep water, blue and purple patterns are the most vivid colors," Gary asserts.
Gary and I agree that this is best accomplished by using brightly colored highly visible lures. Red, orange, chartreuse, hot pink and firetiger are colors that really shine for triggering reaction bites. These same colors are good when dealing with stained murky water or when fishing during periods of low light. One of the things that distinguishes Gary from a lot of other trollers is that he prefers to troll quickly, only slowing down when he has to. This philosophy is reflected in two of Gary's marquee lures, the Hum Dinger and the Cripplure and his signature Sling Blade Dodgers that can be trolled at much higher speeds then traditional herring style dodgers.
Gary has not been skunked for a long time, years in fact, and he attributes this amazing accomplishment largely to the effectiveness of the Cripplure.

A sound basic strategy when going out for a day on the water is to assume that the trout are actively feeding and begin covering various levels of the water column quickly with lures that work well at relatively high speeds. This is when Gary puts out a spread of Hum Dingers. Some of them are fished naked while others are teamed with Sling Blades. If the fish are in an active state they will let you know it in short order. If you don't get hit while moving quickly don't get discouraged. The trout are simply telling you that they aren't feeling too energetic. Start slowing down gradually, until you begin getting some action. When it's time to slow down, Gary puts out a spread of Cripplures. Generally you don't need to run Cripplures with dodgers to get hits, but if you want to pair them with a Sling Blade go for it. If you find that you aren't getting much action out of the blade a lower speeds, take the blade and bend a slight curve in it by apply pressure up and down the back of the blade with your thumbs. The more curve you put in the blade the more movement you'll get at low speeds. When it's time to troll fast again, simply straighten the blade out and go to work! Shasta Tackle offers an extensive line of lures, blades and accessories for landlocked salmon, trout, ocean salmon, halibut and more.

Fishing inflow areas is standard operating procedure at Lake Shasta and I first learned the approach from Gary Miralles of the Shasta Tackle Company, but it works at a lot of other lakes too. As a special note, catfish and bass can often be found in the same spots.
