Well, LBS, how did it go for you? Tough, tough bite. We scraped up 4 fish, but one place out of the money (5th)...

I believe there were only 29 boats in the tourney.

We caught ours trolling cranks.

We did very well Friday... Couple 4 pounds and some smaller ones. Saturday we did catch a thing. we are not set up for long distance trolling. By the sounds of it that is what it took sat. to pick anything up.

What do you mean by long distance trolling?? Can you please explain it a little further. I've been there the last three weekends and have put in about 10 hours on the water with one 15" walleye to show for it, so to hear they can be caught there at least makes me wanna go try it again.

Thanks

pull a #7 to #11 floater 225-250 feet back...

225-250 feet is "Long Distance Trolling"

It's actually called "long line trolling".

To me it is Long Distance... I like things up close and personal. That friday I was hooking walleye 10 to 20 feet from the boat, and had to fish the hooks out of their throat. After tough fishing that Saturday I will be setting up some long line trolling rigs...

      Can not say for sure, but there is parking outside of the park next to the boat ramp and also a turn a round road.

      Is Stoney point access open to the public or just for camper access?

      I purchased this exact boat last year just for Trout.  16ft Alumacraft, 25hp Yamaha, Helix 5 humminbird. This year I purchased a 50# thrust Minn Kota for the bow, I just haven't installed it yet.  Looking forward to it!

      Cutbait is all I use for cats on the red. Cut goldeye, sucker and frogs are my go to baits. Typically a 4-6 oz no roll sinker with a foot leader or shorter. Cast it down current and wait. Caught a lot of cats that way. We actually caught eyes doing that too but not many. Haven't tried bait paste or anything like that but would imagine it would work
