Out on Big tonight trolling with the family. Worked 9-12’ with salmo hornets 75’ back at 1.9-2.4 mph. The perch were on fire. Lots of doubles. Size topped out around 10”. It was a gas.
Went back out solo after dropping them at the dock. Switched the baits to shad dancers and flicker shads. Same depth and speed but ran them 25’ behind. Perch, walleye and one crappie on the shad dancer one small musky and a tiny pike on the flicker shad. Water temps were high 70’s up to 80.6 where the wind had been blowing into all day. A few mayfly were emerging as I was coming off the lake.
