Let me guess, 1/4 ounce wieght, a lindy with a plain hook, and a fat crawler. No suprise there. If you are catching sunnies there usually is walleyes near by, but they can be overwhelming at times. With this heat you would think that the walleyes would be deep but that has not been the case for you this year crawler. Can't beleive it, its August and you still have the boat out, won't be long and you will have to put it away to bowhunt.

gerry ,

who let you out of your cage?

correct on the sunnys,does a fisherperson take only a doz.of the best with him?

I figered the the speed over the 4-5 ft weeds in 12 ft water kept me just above the weeds , trigered the eyes and out of the sunnys in the deeper weeds. hows that'''

would have caught move eyes if reel didn"t catch up and feed faster. Kids don't buy dads new reels do they?

gerry order sight yet?.

Yep, I ordered the site's tonight. Hopefully be here by the end of the week. I got them for cheaper than what you gave me, but I am your son so you owe me. Its funny that everybody is talking about night trolling Long, but it seems that the best time is when it is busy and to get in the weeds.

Long has been funny the last few years, we catch most of our walleyes of not all between 10 in the morning and 4 in the afternoon. trick is to use heavier wieghts, get past he sunnies, and they are shollow. Thats a nioce new spot you found there Dad. I will be up nex weekend to hopefully catch a few. If they are not biting at Long we will go the the better lake. grin.gif

      We're making ice now. 0 degrees in Twig   I measured a spot along my shore that had opened during the warm up and found 4" of ice. If I thought about going out to deeper water I for sure would use caution and chisel my way.

      Yes SA fills tanks and should be able to fill a 30 lb tank but they charge a flat rate.  So if your tank is half full or empty you pay the same flat rate.    Uhaul charges by weight and you pay for what they put in.   Both are cheaper then the tank exchange and most tank exchange are 17 lb whereas SA and Uhaul fills to 20 lb.  When you figure that in your paying a lot more for convenience.    One more detail.  If your tank is out of date and needs a new inspection it can't be filled by UHaul or SA BUT the tank exchange will take them.

      I don't know of any product that will keep a pair work gloves dry.  Sure you can spray a water repellent on them that might bead rain water off but go work in them and they'll be saturated.   If your wearing the gloves for protection having them wet isn't the end of the world but if you need protection and warmth I bring a few pairs on the job.  Or you can purchase some hi-tech stuff that claims to be waterproof but a I know of none that will stand up to be a true work glove.    When I think of work boot I'm thinking leather.   I use Sno-Seal.  It stands up to a hard day on the job and Will keep your feet dry.  Being a wax base dirt will stick to it in warmer temps but bring on the cooler temps and it shines.   You could get a boot like Mucks but they will not hold up like a leather work boot.  So it depends on what type of work I guess.

      What about Super America at Pike Lake? I think they do the same, with better hours. they refill out of big tank.
