Downrigging

Recommended Posts

Would it be a complete waste of time downrigging outside the gap around pine island this time of year? Or should I focus on jiggin in the gap and river? Thinking about a day trip on Saturday.

I don't know if there are a lot of fish to catch, but I caught a 29incher, 23incher, and a 15incher last Wednesday on leadcore. I was trolling in 34 ft and trolled about 3 hours.

Trolling is taking over the world. You can troll and catch

fish anytime of the open water season. It might be fun to

try it(and I might run some leadcore this weekend) but with

the quality of the jig bite trolling has to be your #2

presentation.

Let us know how you did.

Does anyone know what the clarity of the water is outside the gap? I know it has been windy up there lately and was just wondering before I load the riggers and stuff. I have a three hour drive to get up their and it would be great if I knew the water wasn't real dirty.

Thanks!

It's not real clear (never is), but the fish are there

and biting. It had cleared up quite a bit by last weekend.

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.

      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.

      interesting day fishing on 30 inches and 60 degrees out   no monsters but got a very round hybrid and some rock bass with neat eyes.

      Plastic PC is 3/4 x2 x3.5. Drilled shallow holes on the transom side for the adhesive to cling to. Pretty solid. Time will tell

      No shutoff needed. Take a photo of how you mounted your transducer Alex.

      Actually when I store the boat I take the unit off as well. Is it ok to have the power line just hanging out? Do I need a shut off switch?
