Here is the trolling video from this weekend. Enjoy! SV
MOON PHASE (2%)
Fished for eyes this weekend. Did OK jigging then switched it up to trolling and started pounding them. Caught about 40 on Sunday and 6 of which were between 17 and 15.5. Five were trolling one was caught jigging. Earlier in the fall blade baits were our number one choice for keepers but this last weekend the blade bait bite died. Going to try it one more time this weekend. Will post video trolling soon. Here is a video from jigging. SV.
MOON PHASE (7%)
Below 40° F
Another good day on the water. Left the jig rods in the rod locker as the jig bite just hasn't been holding up with the trolling bite. Trolled the entire trip. Ended up with 14 in the keeper range today. Hot baits today were grey/white, purple/chrome, and hot perch. Firetiger was good up until about 8:30. Water temp was 40.9 when we came off the water at 1:00, so hoping for a couple more weeks of open water. Best bite of the year for keepers has been the last week.
MOON PHASE (36%)
40° - 45° F
Got out for a morning trip today. Didn't have great expectations with the large drop in water temps over the last few days. Jigged for the first couple hours with only one keeper and a bunch of shorts to show for it. Switched to trolling for the rest of the morning and managed to add 7 more keepers to the total, all between 17 and 19.75. #7 flicker shads were the best working bait in both black/chrome and mouse color. Bite died when the wind came up. Water temp was between 41 and 44 depending on where you were.
