Thanks Paul W, Hanson, and Team Otter!

10 posts in this topic

Justed wanted to thank my fellow FM'ers who hung in there with me while I struggled to get into em this fall, Paul W, Hanson, and Team Otter in particular. Well, we were finally able to dial her in this past weekend. No sows, but plenty of action. We trolled the inside weed lines around casino bay and had steady action all night. We boated lots of walleyes 14 - 24" along with a couple of dandy pike.

This time we ran in my rig, and I have a kicker so we were able to get our speed down in the 1.2 - 1.8 range. A #12 gold HJ seemed to be the hot ticket for our boat. We mixed it up a bit and had success with a variety of colors, but that was our "go to" bait.

Thanks again!

They give great advise and have a knack for the big pond!

Only a few will master it in their lives!

Well... I'm not sure if I have a knack for the big pond but I'm learning and trying, having some success and failing at the same time. Thats fishing. grin.gif

This fall has really been an education for me in crankbait trolling so I'm happy to share a few things I've learned. Got a lot more to learn though too!

Congrats on your outing!

Thank you for the compliment but really not necessary. It's still fishing. Time on the water and trying things most people wouldn't rule the roost for me.

Thanks guys for the info on the pond. It really helps out guys that don't get the time to go out and scout all the time. I was out last night, the fishing was slow but we managed to pull in a 26 and a 28 inch. I guess that makes the trip worth it!!

      In the summer and fall the night bite is excellent on Cass for eyes.  I'm not much help come winter time though.  With the clearer water due to zebra mussels, I would bet the night bite would be good.

      When I discover it I will let you know. I have not figured it out yet.

      Depends on your layout. If the walls can be easily removed inside that is usually the better option. If too much stuff is in the way...then yep...do as Cliff suggests.

      Is there a special dance or ritual I can do in an attempt at pleasing said fish gods? Cuz my moves and dance skills just are not up to par this year! Lol.

      I will have to look at google earth and see if i can find a street name that'll lead me to an access up there
