eyes between the cat and dunkirk

Recommended Posts

A few days ago I was on Chautauqua Lake trolling and got overtaken by solid fog,could not even see the front of the boat.I used my Raymarine S1000 Autopilot set to run to my Waypoint for Prendergast Launch.At 10 mph the Autopilot took me back to the launch,only 20 ft off the boueys.

Be careful.  The best investment I ever made when I was chartering was radar. 

Where do you put radar on your 14ft. or my 16ft.Small boaters should have a good compus and a GPS.Watch your compus going out so you know if you are east or west of your harbor.A little common sence will get you back.

Chart plotters are wonderful in the fog and haze. The problem becomes over reliance and speeding to crash into other boats.

I was fishing the same area as you on the 11th., with my dipsy set the same as yours and same color.  my rigger was set the same as well but I was at 1.5 to 1.7 mph and ony caught 2.  is the speed going to impact the catch rate that much?

You were fishing below them. The difference from 2.2 - 1.5 - 1.7 on a wire diver in depth is a lot that slow.

I put the boat back in the slip and Dunkirk after fishing Lake Ontario. Took a ride out to 100 ft straight out and trolled two wd's and got a walleye and a perch in about 45 minutes. Hope to get out today.

The speed absolutly can effect triggering the strikes. I usually troll at 1.8mph. the week before in

the same area my fish were at 1.5mph. So changing the speed up is something I always mess with

if I am not getting hits. The other thing I think helped is black dipsey's. I ran a pink for awhile with

no strikes when I changed to black it worked. I also talked to some guys who got all their fish off the

riggers and did not get a good dipsey bite. So I think it was the black dipseys that helped. most of my

fish came off the dipsey's. I also run the harness about 6 feet of the dipsey.

95 ft right out front was pretty good last night 60 ft plus down riggers were best.

Walleye numbers off Point Breeze dropped a lot now that the water temperature fell six degrees over last week. One boat came in with forty eight perch from seventy two feet of water yesterday.
