Is anybody still doing the deep water troll with cranks in the summer on Big Sand, seems like that has died out or is it just me

the cisco population isnt what it once was there for the night troll isnt as effective as it one was, i tried it a few times last summer, June, and had no success. I know guys who caught a few in July and August trolling but i found much better success else where. hope this helps, Jonah

Hey THANK YOU ya know the only place I've fished on that lake is along the old road bed a couple of times and thats it, messed up a prop tho hit a stump coming into the landing one night, I really like that deep water trolling dont have to deal with the weeds etc. just cruise and catch fish. Do you fish it alot?

i had lots of night guide trips out there last summer. if i fish by my self i usually fish it during the day. to avoid stumps i recomend using the south acess and stay in to the left as you head toward the lake. Jonah

      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.
