Got out on Father's Day and trolled from buckhorn bridge south to point. Couple shorts on planer boards. 8-10 FOW. Lost brand new Yellow Bird board! Live and learn to pull boards quicker on turn before trolling motor eats up the line. New to me so lesson learned. Kiss

I have used pretty much the same rigging, however instead of the swivel I just pinch a small split shot on to act as a stop for the sinker. That way if I get hung up, all I have to do is retie once as the split shot will just pull off, freeing the line.

I hope this makes sense to y'all.

Castle Rock Rigger, I assume this is what you mean?

Well this is how I do it and it works for a verity of fish and applications...I use a bullet sinker instead of an egg because I've find it snags less. Also, I use a 1/2-oz sinker because I fish in heavy current a lot and I find a 12" to 18" leader best. It's a VERY versatile setup...

3/8 egg sinker , split shot #5, #4 mustad hook, and crappie minnow to get crappies on Castle Rock. Works great for me.

Fished the Rock from about 8am to 2pm Thursday 6/18. Water temp started out about 70 and hit about 74 by the time we got off the lake. Spent the day trolling and fighting a stiff NNW breeze. The waves stirred up the water and made it a bit more challenging to stay on the course we wanted. Ran a mix of Shads, Hornets and Walleye Divers. The darker colors seemed to be the favorite today. All in all, caught a boatload of short-eyes, a few nice Crappie, some very nice size White Bass (for this time of year), and what would the day be without a fat Catfish or two. Cool

Was out on "The Rock" on Wednesday . Mostly worked jigs and dead rods tipped with fat-heads and crawlers along channel edges near Splash and mid-lake areas. Most fish came in the 12-16 foot range today. Boated 2 "keepers", 35 "shorties", 3 crappies, 1 white bass, 1 small mouth, 2 cat, and 1 sheep head. Smile

Keep a tight line!!!

Bob booked a full day trip for 2 with me on the rock today. I picked the guys up from juneau county park @ 6 am Water temp was 70 and when we left around 2 pm water temp was 76. We started out trolling. We caught a few nice slot walleyes,shorts,crappies and white bass. Later we jigged and put a mix bag of fish in the boat. Wind was out of the south all day. Some of the areas had alot of weeds floating around. Water is starting to clean up on both the lake and river. Water also has went down to just about normal level. Big Smile Anyone looking to book a guide trip?? I have a few openings left for the rest of the open water season. Smile

Coming up to the rock to stay for a week with the family. Being I never have fished it before I figured going out with Jerry Tipping "Anglers Pride Guide Service would be the quickest way to learn the lake. My dad has terminal lung cancer and this will be his last time out. Jerry suggested I take my lowrance along. I plugged in 15 to 20 waypoints of hot spots."sunken trees,channel edges,rock beds,etc. I've realized the older I get how valuable time is. Yeah it cost a few bucks but next week when I set my dad down on fish ten minutes after we get there it will be worth twice the cash I spent. Thanks Jerry for all the info. The daughter and I had a blast. You are a helluva nice, honest, descent, knowledgable guy. Anyone have a question regarding Anglers Pride Guide Service send me a p.m.
