Fished the day NW of the point with David, Joyce, Colton and Madeline. Managed to slowly pick away and put 6 walleyes in the box along with a nice Brown Trout. Madeline managed to winch in 7 colors of LC along with her first walleye, a 32" 10 lber and Colton brought aboard the first Brown Trout of the year. Program remained the same as the previous day.
Fished the day NW of the point with Tom, Barney and Dave. Managed some steady action boating 8 walleyes and 3 steelhead. The walleyes all ranged from 8 - 10#s with the steelhead being 10 #s +. Program consisted of 7 LC w/ RRs on one side, RRs w/ 4 & 5 oz on the other and riggers w/ DW SS spoons. Best Colors: RR - Gator Bait BN, BN and Night Vision; DW SS Green Muffin, Trolling Speed: 2.2
Fished the morning NE of the point with Ray and his crew. NE winds gave the walleyes lock jaw and we only managed to put 2 in the box. With things being very slow at 11:am the crew decided to throw in the towel and call it a day. The Capt. used the remaining ice in the fish box for his chin.
Both trips had to be cancelled due to inclimate weather.
Ran NW of Walnut with Bob Z and his family. Sat down to the same screen as the previous day, full of fish and bait. Got 3 rods in the water and had a double on, looking to be a good day. Those two got dropped on the way in while trying to get the crew up to speed on how to bring these fish in. Got three walleyes in the box and dropped a few more while setting up. Got the last rod in and turned around to see three of the four crew members were green from the Lake Erie flu. The tough bunch did everything they could to hang in there but when things didn't get any better we made the decision to pick up and call it a day. Same program as the previous day.
Ran NW of Walnut to do some fun fishing with Joe and Frank. Sat down to a sreen full of fish and bait. Boated our 18 walleyes and went 0/1 on steelhead in short order and were back at the dock for lunch. Program consisted of 5 & 7 LC w/ RRs and weighted RRs on mono (3 & 4 oz) off of the boards with DW SS spoons off of the riggers pitching in a few. Best colors: RR: Gator Bait BN, BN and Chart WB BN. Trolling speed: 2.2-2.3
