    While fishing at Sheridan Lake, two members decided to try Horse Lake (near 100 Mile House) and fish for lake trout. They sought local fishing advice from Bruno Sprecher, owner of the Cariboo Bonanza on Horse Lake, Bruno advised that no one had caught a lake trout that week (July); however, he said he always offers the same advice. He advised we go straight across the lake from his resort and fish parallel to the shore about 100 yards out. He also said, I want you to use leaded line; let it out 9 to 10 colours; and use 4" frog patterned spoon with 2 treble hooks. Within an hour, John and Peter had each caught a lake trout; 12 and 8 pounds respectively.
