It's getting to that time of year again where I come around to putting new line on the open water reels, and once again there are more choices and variations than the previous year.

Figured I'd put out a post to see if anyone found a line that works best for them in certain situations, and if anyone has a different or unique way of tackling these situations.

1. Panfish in shallow, weedy water.

2. Crappies suspended over deep structure, fallen tress.

3. Topwater lures for bass, or for use in lillypads.

4. Deep walleyes in stained water.

5. Casting for northern over shallow rocks. (daredevils)

6. River catfish relating to log jams.

7. Slip Bobbers for deep walleye.

      There was at least 5-6 places down the road from us that had people at them. A few showed up mid-day or so on Thursday but for most it was Friday am. With the nice weather on Saturday there was a bunch of boats out, most came out of the PA, I believe. We haven't decided when we leaving yet, so we should be here if you get bored. Boat, dock, lift are all in the lake yet so we'll be around for a while. Nothing really going on at home until turkey day anyway.

      Rig / minnow, jig / minnow, we had some leeches along as well & tried them too. I was a bit surprised at the surface temps(~47) that day as they were 4-5 degrees cooler than where we fish most of the time, which is just east of Winnie / Cutfoot.

      Fished ALL day with Mike. Started out good with a couple doubles on pike but slowed way down. Ended up with three walleyes, eight pike and about 30 bass. Couldn't mark many today whereas on Saturday I marked lots of fish. All on soft plastics. Today's video link Mike can catch em without crawlers video
