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!!

      There was random ice sheets all over the lake this morning.   Should be ice covered 100% barring it being to windy.   By Friday at the latest.   Could be ice fishing next week in certain areas.   Don

      Was up this past weekend, everything is still open. Should lock up this week though looking at the chilly forecast.

      An older gentleman I know gave me his ice fishing gear last year knowing he wasn't able to use it anymore due to health.  Really tore him up, as I'm sure it would for all of us.  Cleaned up the tipups real nice, and took this photo of one on Leech to send to him knowing they were in good hands and more importantly continue to catch fish!   I'm not in St.Cloud, nor want in for the contest just thought I'd share
