Maiden voyage on Chautauqua

Recommended Posts

Heading out to Chautauqua for the first time this weekend. As much as I enjoy the convenience of nice weather fishing, I'm looking forward to the cold and rain to add to the fall time musky experience !! Planning to mix up some casting and trolling.

All in all the trip was successful. Saturday was cold and rainy most of day but we did land a little guy.  It was a boatside hookup after dragging a paddle tail slowly across bottom through the weeds. 

 

Winds shifted direction overnight and water temps dropped considerably. 64 Sat down to 55 Sunday AM. Contacted two fish around 1pm but no connection. One miss due to lazy figure 8. Managed to hook up boatside around 4pm but she dropped it before making it into the net. All fish were within 100yds of each other. Tuff shad was the number on Sunday. Didn't see anything over 40.

Yeah certainly better than nothing.  I was equally as pleased to trailer the boat 4 hrs each way without any issues. That was the first time I've trailered anything close to that distance
