    Default 7/15 afternoon trip with a fathe rand son-in-law from Iowa

    We had a very Productive trip running out of Lorain this afternoon with a father and son-in-law from Iowa. We fished in deeper water north of the dumping grounds out of Lorain, Ohio towards the Canada boarder and found a nice grade of Walleye for them. We caught over 30 walleye and sent them home with their limits for some good dinners. We pulled bandits 50/100 and 50/125 with 2oz weight and jet 40's with spoons and phantom dagger #7's from 45, 65 back to 100 back. We found the fish spread out more in the water column as some came up higher and some down a bit deeper. everything caught fish speed was 2.1 to 2.5 had to slow down a tad tonight. Nice grade of fish and very consistent catching. They want to fish over Christmas break when they are back in town if the lake and the weather will let us get out for some winter walleye.

    I think I know where the trophy fish are staying now. Super work putting your clients on fish.

    Good job capt Sam.That is a long lead for running bandits with 50/100 and 50/125 and 2oz sinker.how deep did you think those cranks were running?Guessing 28 to 30 ft down?

    Awesome, haven't been out in two weeks,had to replace my drive.anyway I have a question I use the walleye boards on one side (orange) and the green boards from netcraft sorry drawing a blank on the names.but my son and I are having a heck of a time getting them to release,I'm using mono by the way.with divers and crankbaits when we dial back they trip any ideas would be appreciated

    Bob, i believe they are running 30 to 40 deep. 150 back at 2.25 is 35 deep and at 2.5 it is 32 deep so at 175 back should be close to 40 deep. you could do it with less line and 3 oz weights but at those speeds it starts to mess with the way the boards run i find this to be a happy medium.

    They don't release at the board so we are fighting the board all the way in

    You don't want your board to release. You real the board to the boat and remove...than fight the fish and I suggest to put braid on all your lines totally better for so many reasons.

    Thanks capt Sam,guess didn't take into account your higher speeds.I have tried the 3oz sinker on my cranks and inline boards,but that extra weight and the crank pull to hard to read board very well.The 2oz weight is the standard most guys use but they usually put them 20ft behind crank.As for comment about using braid for everything,we use braid for dipsies.But mono works better for inline boards.Braid too thin and slippery on the releases of the inline boards to work best.
