  1. I'll take any. Depth, temp, jigs, live bait, smell, taste, anything. Thanks!!!
  2. I fished on Saturrday. We boated 15. Biggest was 8lbs. We were not entered in the derby. I took one look at that fish at the weigh-in station and could not believe my eyes. I've fished on that lake for over 50 years and have never caught a laker bigger than 13lbs. I'm still shocked at the size of that thing.
  3. I have a 18' Tracker that I bought brand new in 2019. Nice boat. But there are some serious ergonomic design flaws. Cant completely open live wells when back and front seats are installed - huh? Can go to full throttle if driver seat is turned the wrong way - seat hits throttle upon rotation - dangerous Cavitates unless trim is set 95-100% full down Switches for power, bilge, live wells - almost impossible to tell if on or off. Two dead batteries to prove it. Simple stuff any engineer could look at and say - this sucks. Has full welded hull so that's nice. The Lund was just too much money for me. I know they're great. I also wish I could get a Honda or Suzuki. Not an option. Trailers they sell with the boat are awesome. Can load by your self easily.

  9. What weight balls do you guys use? Could anybody tell me what is normal amount of angle our downrigger wire is at while trolling? Is there a simple way to calculate the actual depth of the ball based on the wire angle? Thanks!

    Genny Walleyes

    Never eaten anything out of there. I know what they did at kodak
  11. Tick tick tick. That's the secret.

    Genny Walleyes

    Had a good evening tonight 5-9 on the Genny. Drove up to Seth Green Island and landed 15 or so Walleye. Night Crawlers on a small hook above a weight landed half for me. Also casted a bright orange lipless crankbait for the other half. Neighbor did well with deep diving crankbaits for the Walleyes. He also landed 4-5 smaller catfish on a float rig above a crawler. Anywhere upstream of Seth Green on the East side was really good. All released. There is a dude camping on Seth Green. Possibly homeless guy. But a fisherman so he's good with me. Alleged that he caught huge eyes in the morning on shrimp. I call BS. If you are a good Walleye angler unlike me, maybe you could do better. Good luck. Will try to post pics later.
  13. Good job! I think almost any way to wind up the copper will work as long as you don't end up with a rats nest. I use have salt water rods with Penn 49 reels. When I am pulling the copper, though, I always have the copper line in my hand. SOme of the old timers used these wooden loom like things with a handle on either side one on top and one on bottom. I also have a Victrola that works nice. I never liked the Sutton spoons for copper. Always seemed too light for me. I like the heavier Pflueger Record 4's, 4 1/2's and 5's (or copies) in all silver or blue and white combos. I also prefer braided wire to solid to avoid kinks. Finally on the Pflueger's I like the dangling hook versus the fixed but both work. Sometimes you can find those spoons cheap on Ebay if you spell the search wrong. A little hint for you.
  14. Thanks. You're right. Most of the Lakers we got were not that big. Maybe biggest was 6 lbs. It's a little hard for me to get down to 60 with the copper but I have a downrigger. Thanks for the tip on the bows. Could you let me know what lures, depth and speed for those?
