Thanks for the info Pulaski. Now I need to experiment to find the correct depth and put the time in to gain confidence in pulling planer boards.
Arod for the most part they are trolling crawler harnesses 1-1.5 mph. Most guys the last few weeks have been running over deep mud flats and trying to run rigs what ever depth they are marking them at as the fish are suspending just above thermocline. Stop in at smiths sport shop in crandon they have great bait and fair prices they have been very helpful every time I have stopped in there! Good luck and have fun!
Over the last few years I have noticed more and more boats pulling planner boards. Just looking for some basic info on the tactic. Are these guys pulling crank baits and/or crawler harnesses? Is there a depth that seems to work better? Also is there a speed that seems to be the best? I've invested some time with this tactic but haven't found any consistancy with it. Any info would be welcomed. Thanks
Hey guys not looking for a fishing report but rather just some basic info. I see there's two launches on this lake, 1 on the south side and 1 on the north side. I'm going up to visit a family friend who has a place and I was told I might have a tough time launching a 20.5' fiberglass boat because of how shallow the launches are? Just wondering if someone who fishes up there could give me a little bit more reliable insight. Thanks!

saw a pic at Lax taxidermy of 2 tank perch from this lake...thought they came out of Gogebic...16 & three quarter inch with a 15 inch kicker...holy crap! Fat girls for sure!..This lake sounds like it has made a fantastic comeback
So, if I understand correctly, recruitment index, is the number of walleye that survive the first year. Glad to hear it's doing well on Metonga. I have lived on Metonga for the past few years and any information on how the lake is managed is welcome, thank you.
