I have a chance to take my 6 year old out on Saturday morning, and was wondering if anyone has any information about water quality (weeds, alge, etc) or suggestions on harness color or flickers or where to try. Please let me know if you think if it's even worth the trip. Any info would be really helpful. Thanks.

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 

Thanks!
