All the lakes are pretty dirty. It's been very windy all week since Tuesday. Couldn't do any fishing on Poygan with the waves.

Was on the south shore this morning. Looked like chocolate milk. Good luck trolling. Water is warm.

I was just wondering if anyone has any updates on the trolling bite on Poygan? I'm thinking about heading out there tomorrow am. Mainly wondering if there are still a few walleyes roaming around. Thanks for any replies.

After striking out on Wed evening the 22nd, I decided to try again Sunday afternoon. Stayed in 5-7 fow and managed to get 3 keepers 16-22 inches using yellow glow spin harnesses. There was enough cloud cover to make it tolerable, and the south wind picked up slightly later in the afternoon. Temps at the surface were just over 80 so I'm wondering we are nearing the end until fall.

Not too green on the west end on 7/21. Got out at 8am and got one 20"keeper, a short, a few white bass up to 15", and foul hooked a 25" cat which took 10 min. to net. All on harness's. Surface temp was 74 and it was windy enough out of the nw that I could not troll east of Old Indian Point.

Was able to get out last thur and fri mornings and the fishing was awesome. used harnesses with bottom bouncers and stayed in 4-6' of water. Have heard other guys using flickers in 4-6' of water and doing well also. Have to find them and then game on. Amazing they are still in shallow but will see what this hot weather does to them in the coming weekend. Good luck out there.

I was limited to drifting this past weekend and got out Saturday and Sunday morning from 6:30-10:30. Had two small eyes, several goats and a few kitty cats to show for it.

Casting a crank and dragging crawlers.

Sounds good, we are going to try tomorrow night, thanks for the tips. I got some people at the foundry I'm going to ask on Monday. We got 9 days off so it's fishing time this week.

Hunt Fish Get the Percision Trolling App installed on your IPhone. For $2 you can pick a certain lure and it will give you your dive depths.If im getting lots of whites on of the first things Ill do is run baits little deeper. Sometimes that will take care of it. Peace, Trolling Cranks is a blast for me.Lar

Hunterandfisher4life;

For a shallow lake like Poygan, 25-35 back is standard (#5flicker shads, #3 salmos), as long as your in at least 6ft of water.

When fishing shallow, I always set my drags light and put my "Clickers" on. That way if you snag bottom, you'll hear it right away and then start your "Chinese Fire Drill."

The tension on my drags is just tight enough to prevent line from being pulled out by the boards.

You will just have to try it. If your lures are getting snagged up , then try less. Every day can be different. Let the fish tell you how much line to let out. It is not that hard to get the hang of it. Mrt.
