Larry Smith Fishing show
I have not fished LOTW, but have fished in Canada many times. The last few years Larry has fished the lake by trolling, including lead line. Not my cup of tea. Is this the way LOTW is commonly fished? What about jigging? Larry raves about the walleye fishing on LOTW, but they do not do that good to me.
I've been using a compass since I was about 10 (I am now 36).
LOTW has over 14,500 islands. (Not a typo) My point was I'd use any and every advantage I had at my disposal, especially at night.
Also, the chances of 3 GPS units failing is pretty slim, but yes, I do carry a compass.
