  1. Set up in 70ft and trolled north in search of steelies. Ended up with 8 ranging from 4 to 6 pounds and a ten pound laker. The laker hit 10 down over 260 on a stinger fire frog. Half the fish were skinny post spawn fish out deep. 250ft to 350ft was the best with a 2.4 gps speed working. Temps were in the upper 40's with 46.7 getting us a fish every time we circled through the narrow band. A no name orange/silver white back spoon took 6 fish and stingers with orange in them took the rest. Leadcore 4 colors took half the fish plus boards and riggers. Skies got ugly so trolled back into 70ft and had a dipsy hit on blk/silver green glow spoon with nobody home. Had a friend catch some fish in that 70 to 90 foot zone, dont know the details. Too bad the weather didnt hold for Sunday but I want to say thanks to the guys I fished with from Sodus to the bar this derby. :beer:

  2. Jax, if you dont troll with the main it might be worth it to keep it alive. I bought a motor off ebay and ended up having it rebuilt anyway. Its better to spend hundreds than thousands is what im trying to say. If the VRO is an issue, bypass it and mix the oil yourself. This way you dont have to worry and you save cash. The motor I bought WAS rebuilt half assed, then Pugsley's built it right good luck.

  3. Those ponds are hit hard daily, I think the water needs to clear up a bit. There is only a small window for the jumbos to run the shore line,good luck. I hope the slobs clean up after themselves, doubt it.

  4. Was out yesterday and it was pretty slow for perch. Didn't move around to much as it was windy and cold in the morning. We did get a half dozen hammer handle pike on large shiners. Should be some larger fish lurking soon.

  5. Tried this a couple of days ago and it worked great. Put some dried red onion skins in with your bass or pike minnows overnight or longer. This will give them a golden hue like a golden shiner. I only used skins from 2 onions and will use a little more next time. Caught a couple nice bass on them, good luck.
