    I like Power Pro and I use the 30/6 lb test. It is stiffer than Spiderwire so has less issues with blowing in the wind, flipping around rod tips, etc. You can get Power Pro at lots of places like...

    Okuma Convectors are very nice reels and pretty economical. I've had 4 for about 15 years and they are still working well. No problems.

    TAG, I agree. I've looked into it and that seems to be the best option. I've decided to go with the Minn Kota Terrova 80 lb 24 V 60 in. I won't need to link it to my older Humminbird to make it work...

    Thanks to all for the advice. I think I'll look into the bow mount trolling option. It will likely require a new sonar unit but that's not a bad thing since my current one is pretty old.

    Great advice!

    Great advice on going out that far Capt Juls. I've taken my 21 ft Lund out to the weather buoy and it can be more than spooky-scared spitless if it starts to blow. Be careful.

    You can still find fish around Kellys that time of year. But Joedog is right about Huron. Nice ramps, relatively close to the lake, etc. I don't think you would need to go all the way out to the sand...

    I fished for several years on Lake Erie out of a 17' Magna V Tracker. Great boat that can handle 2 ft waves easily. Anything over 3 footers is a bit of a challenge and less than comfortable,...

    Great report. Love seeing that Purdue hat! Go Boilers!

    Curious about the size stinger spoons you are running. I've got a lot of the small 2 1/2 inch ones and a few larger 3-1/2 to 4 inch. Since...

    The firing is only in area 1. It doesn't most of the reef complex, especially this time of year as I assume the walleye have moved north out into 25 FOW or deeper.

    Thanks for the reply. Yes, casting is a lot more fun, especially with kids or impatient anglers. Trolling can be more productive at times but is not the same as holding the rod in your hands.

    Hey My Way,

    My suggestion is you use braid with a mono backing. The backing keeps the braid from slipping on the reel spool and allows you to fill the spool so the line counters are more accurate....
