It was a good day.

4 posts in this topic

Tom M, and I went out today and the fish came out to play. We must have cought 25-30 Walleyes. None over 16". 7 or 8 Northerns, all over 22" and one that was 32". A 28" Bowfin (Dogfish) which we should have wighted and a 17" White Bass. All fish came from 7-9 FOW trolling at 3+mph. The 32" northern Pike was cought while trolling at 3mph and I was reeling in fast to check my crankbait for weeds. There were no weeds on the crankbait only fish grin.gif.

My neighbor said he cought a 31" Northern today also. So I say; It was a good day.

Awesome! Wish mine was that good today! No eyes, and only a few bass n perch.

All the Eyes were over flat gravel bottom near weed with deep water close by. I know it was gravel because my crankbait could bang bottom with out picking up weeds and moss in the areas where the eyes were. Oh yea! I almost forgot. The wind was blowing into the weeds in the areas where the Walleye's were. Oh it is so nice to have 10-15mph winds grin.gif. That 20-30mph stuff is getting tiresome frown.gif.

I tend to find Bass and Perch on the calmer side of the weeds/lake. Look to areas where the wind has been pounding shallow water, main lake point, sunken rock piles and such.

Remember, Speed and depth, Speed and depth, Speed and depth. Yes, I just watched the end of The Wizzard of OZ confused.gif.

      I just bought a new Elite 7TI and the sun cover it came with doesn't really snap on very securely.  I'd say it just rests loosely on the outside.  It won't fall off if I flip it upside down, but it feels like it wouldn't stay on going down the highway or withstand any sort of jarring.  It takes hardly any pressure to pull it off.  Is this normal or is it a defect?  I've never owned a graph with a sun cover so I'm not familiar, but I imagined it would be a lot more snug.

      I have a Lowrance Elite 7 and was curious what lake chip most of you recommend for Lake of the Woods.  The insight pro chip that came with my unit is very basic for up there and was looking for a more detailed chip.  I'm not sure what brands are compatible with the Lowrance and which ones aren't.        Thanks in advance!

      Glad it didn't take a swim. My buddy had one of the cheaper Minnkotas deploy while he was up on plane using the main motor.  Needless to say it was a weak pin in the release system. It was a rental boat so he didn't have to deal with it. Bent the heck out of the stem portion. It was fully modified!   Didnt know now you were still going up to LOTW. Thought you were selling the place. Assuming you don't have the Sportcraft anymore since I don't think you'd put a Minnkota on that. If you still have the Sportcraft I know someone that might be interested in it.    I head up to South end out of Wheelers point tomorrow after work. Up for 2 weeks. Touch base with me if you are coming up or have the Sportcraft still for sale.   Ryan

      Thanks for the information. I believe yours must be different by the sounds of it. Mine looks like the one below. A bolt actually goes through the pin and bolts onto the actual trolling motor and you have to pull the lever completely out to remove it from the boat.

      Crawlers work great for a mixed bag of fish.  Fresh cut bait like suckers or shad work great for channel cats.  I've never fished North Lake in Red Wing. Have fun!
