1. Caught another 3 man limit trolling Friday night in 3.5 hours :) Smithwick top 20 Stick baits in pink lemonade and purple Marvin colors. Also chrome and Black. ...more 2.2-2.5 mph on dipsy's and planer boards all different depths. One really nice 7-8 pounder that I don't have a pic of Then caught ANOTHER 3 MAN LIMIT This morning (Saturday) in about 5 hours!!! Similar program but dark purple did the best by far. Bandits, Smithwick's and flicker minnows. Also a big 25 foot diving bass crank bait caught 3 in about 45 mins which was definitely interesting. Caught my first Jigging walleye on a jigging rap while we were trying to get some perch to add to the box which was exciting! Lost a really nice eye on a blade bait too. Lake kicked up fast this afternoon and had a hard time getting back in even in my Grady White... Be safe out there Guys and tight lines!!!

    7 lb. 2 oz. Walleye with a Deep Diving Stick Baits.

  2. Caught 13 on our first troll to the east. Set lines right out of Fairport Harbor and caught them 3/4 the way to Perry. Drifted back with worm harnesses for the last ...more 5 for a 3 man limit in 4.5 hours! Lost 5 or 6 others because my dad can't boat flip and wasn't patient enough for someone to get the net 😂 They were mostly cookie cutter 17 inch fish. some bigger, some 16"ers

    2 lb. 8 oz. 22 in. Walleye with a Silver Smithwick top 20

  3. 14.5" one was the 3rd to the last catch of the night before I had to pack it in. Awesome evening spent with my Dad. He got his first ever Crappie and I caught ...more probably a dozen with only 5 or 6 of legal size. Only kept these 4. Caught several on a micro crank bait with an ultralight rod and reel. Tons of fun!
