Haven't done too much with cranks, but I have done a little, usually in the evening in areas where I pretty sure the eyes are moving in to. I generally use shad raps or reef ruuners in about 11-14 of water. There are some spots with a long gradual shoreline I will try trolling them on. There are also a few places where I'll cast them up to the shore. I've caught my biggest eyes on Kab using one of these two methods. I've only tried deep trolling a couple of times and didn't do anything. I know some guys troll wire line with deep cranks between Martin and Headlight islands and get a few. Hope this helps.

      You were in the right area, maybe just the wrong time.  I went out late this afternoon to see if the house my Dad has been using came through the "flood" OK and decided to drop a line when I was there. When I first dropped the hook down the hole a walleye screamed up off the bottom and slammed it 5 feet off the bottom. So out of curiosity I just sat there and jigged 4 to 5 feet off the bottom and they kept coming up and slamming it. They never touched the dead stick that was set 1 foot off the bottom.  All I can think of is that with the snow cover gone they could really see something up against the sunlight. I hadn't seen the walleyes that aggressive all winter.  maybe it was because I was fishing in a hole about 20 inches wide due to the water running down it.   No I don't think so cuz I have a big roll of duct tape and a bunch of white sheets. I'll wrap me, the Jeep and the dog in white sheets. We'll be just like ghosts.  OOPS, just remembered that the snow is all gone. I really think that after all the years we each could stick a pin in a lake  map guessing where the other one would be and we would each be within 1/4 mile. From his description fishing tech was right on the eastern edge of your favorite area.

      What needs to be in the boat, to be legal to fish Superior. I've been trying to find it in the book with no luck.
