Downrigging

5 posts in this topic

Would it be a complete waste of time downrigging outside the gap around pine island this time of year? Or should I focus on jiggin in the gap and river? Thinking about a day trip on Saturday.

I don't know if there are a lot of fish to catch, but I caught a 29incher, 23incher, and a 15incher last Wednesday on leadcore. I was trolling in 34 ft and trolled about 3 hours.

Trolling is taking over the world. You can troll and catch

fish anytime of the open water season. It might be fun to

try it(and I might run some leadcore this weekend) but with

the quality of the jig bite trolling has to be your #2

presentation.

Let us know how you did.

Does anyone know what the clarity of the water is outside the gap? I know it has been windy up there lately and was just wondering before I load the riggers and stuff. I have a three hour drive to get up their and it would be great if I knew the water wasn't real dirty.

Thanks!

It's not real clear (never is), but the fish are there

and biting. It had cleared up quite a bit by last weekend.
