was more like when we found em the hits came thoughout the day but everyfish we hit i turned around and we hit another 1 then that would be it, then we would be back on search mode. but today our fish came on short leads and we trolled a tad faster then weve been. was running 4.0 not 3.8 . we took our last fish at 4:42 only reason i remember is we agreed to pull lines at 5 and i looked at the time to see if had time to reset and spin around. the fish dont seem as schooled up over here as they are between the pike n the puce we made one pass though that stretch tuesday and took 7 fish but all under 30 inches. why we were in the bay today the fish were bigger but still no legals . heres a shot of 2 in the tank from a fast turn around

They were the only musky in the boat if I remember correct. Wish that 50 incher would have gotten hooked when he nailed my lure at the boat. I need more hooks I guess


Finished hijacking your thread Dennis. WTG today!

my crew wasnt saying that today both fish were lost when i was on the rod. i even got accused of sabotaging my hook/ land ratio to hold out for a big one lol, by my brother of course. so i blamed it on faulty rigging(he was setting rods) and ended up with the pike on my turn the bass were non counters for rod turn. but one i lost hit a downrod with a 2 ft lead and went crazy thrashing and threw lure i had the rod like a whole 10 seconds we had another go airborn striking that same set up, wich was pretty cool too bad wasnt bigger

Good seeing you out there. I was sure it was you after I broke out the binos and saw that awesome Yammie on the back!

Next time I see you I'll probably call you up and see if I can come over and check out the live well.

Nice work Dennis, you have been tearing them up so far!! Will you be out this weekend? If so, what channel will you be on? I am going over to Mitchell's Bay for the weekend and I would expect I may make it out trolling if the weather is good. Good job and save some for the rest of us novices to try and enjoy a few!

all i can say is experiment, been off all week fished everyday besides weds. just ask rjt or my bro how many lure/lead changes i had em do as i was trying dif depths n such today. but weve caught fish as shallow as 6 ft n deep as 18 ft this week so i still havnt figured a pattern. everyday weve been setting like first time out. various leads/lures n try n piece it together from there by the end of today we had all body baits on,was a first this week all other outings ended in running all tails. but everywhere we tried we have found fish
