Where's a good spot to fish off the bank at Havasu? I'm shorebound and haven't ever fished Havasu. I fish Pleasant with anchovies all the time but I hear they're bigger up there. I'm tired of 2-4 pounders. Any advice appreciated.

Kurt, never fished from shore but night time would be your best bet I know they get some good ones from site six piers and from the shores by there. From site six to crazy horse camp ground lots of people drive down close to the water and fish at night most have 4x4's.

We are headed up this weekend.I hope it is better this year than last,for sure. Got a few different things the wife and I are working on for this year.Stuff we havent tried b4.Hope fully it will help.

Let me know or call me and ill give you more details.

Hey Thanks for the reply we are staying at the Nautical Inn I do fish with the wife. We usalley get some desent fish but last year all our spots had nada. Do you rent out all year because we run up there 3 or 4 times a year the wifes relatives all live up there but we always rent a place to stay keeps peace in the family. If I know somebody that needs a place for the derby will let you know do have 2 to 3 more friends going up but think they have a place to stay already will let them know in case they don't. We metered a lot of fish last month but nothing bit up around sandy point might try trolling alot this year. Hey good fishing hope you figure out something that works this year and bbq and beer is always good no matter what the fish do. What happened to the old director he ran the derby great see you there.....
