Central… waves and wind are not the same as current.

There are times I am doing 2.8-4 to get a hit.

you are trolling the wrong direction if you are seeing that. You should always troll into the current, not with it

Great show; proved that if you know what you are doing, you can still put fish in the boat out on the big pond.

Usually not a fan of the trout and salmon shows... but seeing that they were essentially running a charter out of John's boat, I watched, waiting for the almost inevitable cluster..

I would give the guide high marks for doing as well as he did, given the situation

Lot of assumptions there… most sound like a guy just looking to have something negative to say.

Your statement about speed doesn't make any sense. Speed at the ball with the current is different than if you are going against it. The reason boat speed isn't always the same, but the general goal of a speed he gave is safe, if you are having to hope to be close with a "ball speed" and don't have a way to verify it.

I think it was a decent show… glad they put a big one in the boat at the end of the night.

Did anyone notice that Brian was giving false information about the speed. I know that the best speed is 1.8-2.2 at the ball. Now I don't have a depth raider but I do know that I have to go faster than 2.2 on my locator to have the proper speed at the baits. There are times I am doing 2.8-4 to get a hit. It was funny how he was telling John to slow down to net the fish which means that they were going faster than what they were saying.

I usually watch this show on fast forward now....but I did watch this past one.

Man, Rob was really on the big walleyes. Very cool to see! And the weather??? Yikes!

Congrats on the great trip, Rob! Now go find a musky show or two.... Only give the hot bait to John and not Andy for a change. Wink
