Water is almost like chocolate milk after the wind. Cane beds slowed down since the change in water clarity. Catch one or two but on rib worms working it like a shaky head for bass fishing. Almost didn't catch a single eye today until I was about 5 min from packing up. Has anyone ever tried tolling or working cane beds at night. I work 2nd shift and by the time I would get on the water it would be around 11pm.
Marty the way to change depth is put your lure closer to the board for running shallower, and farther away from your board for deeper. I know on Berkeley flicker shads and minnows there is a chart on the box that tells you how far back to put your bait behind the board for the depth you want

First time using planer boards this weekend. Caught two eater walleye after a total of about 6 hours fishing. Lol. Not complaining though. Used a green flicker shad and purple and yellow cabelas walleye runner.
Did have a question about changing the depth behind the boards...how do you adjust the depth up or down behind the boards?
Also, I lost a board-lime green opti-tackle . If anyone happened to pick up please let me know..I would be willing to give you a couple lures or something. Would really appreciate it. I live right near Norwegian bay

What a weekend. Boated 12 nice coho aboard the whitecap with "the doctor" out of Port Washington on Saturday. On Sunday, pulled #5 flicker shads through the hole at various depths and boated 14 decent walleye on Poygan with frequent repeat "client" Reel Time.
With fishing like this right in my backyard, makes me wonder if we should cancel Canada trip coming up in two weeks. Wait... No, it doesn't.

Well it's a hit or miss on trolling but the CAN BEDS ARE PRODUCING! Had a little tournament today at Indian point 5am till 3pm. Trolled tull about 1 and the rest of the time was the canes. Had better luck cast along the canes than to them lots in that eater range 14 to 15 inch fish. Will be fishing the cane beds for awhile now. 1/8 orange jig with crawler or leach was 50/50. If you are going to troll gold and black or salmo viking color or crome blue and silver were the top producers at like 1.6 1.7.

Fished boards from 9 until 3 picking up 3 Walleyes 16 to 18 and 3 white bass. Very difficult to keep baits clear of weeds.
