September 8, 2019. NOAA missed the forecast again,which is no surprise. They said one foot or less, and it was 3 foot rollers with a frequency that made fishing uncomfortable an difficult for tending lines, and keeping a somewhat smooth troll. We had a bad day, compared to many. We motored out to where I left off thursday, 70-75 FOW, and found some fish. We decided to try bottom bouncing with crawler harnesses, because my father in law just came back from 8 days in canada and they catch tons of walleyes with jigs up there, rod in hand. After half and hour with no bites, we started trolling. The fish did seem scattered as I found most of the times I have been out this summer. I trolled through my marks on thursday in 75 FOw, out to 80 and back, and we did see a fair number of walleyes at 60 feet down whwre the water temp was 71 versus 72 on surface, as I recall. Only caught 3, and decided to call it a day because my father in law could not even stand up in the boat with his bad knees. Caught One on a rigger at 65 (spoon), one on a 200 copper (stickbait tipped with crawler), one on a diver (crawler harness- round blade this time) . Oh, had another hit on the diver and lost the entire setup, black chinook diver too, my last one. Wire just broke. I think we were running our divers too high for most of the time we fished, and I usually experiment more, but for some reason I didn't today and it hurt us. I ran them around 145-160 most of the time. Mistake. I sometimes let out line until they hit bottom and then crank in a little but I didn't do that today. I didn't even try leadcore because I did not think it would get down with as rough as it was and the boat moving up and down and sideways 3 to 4 feet in every directions. Thursday leadcore did not work for me, which is unusual because I usually have real good luck with it. I didn't want a copper leadcore tangle with the waves today so I left the leadcore stowed. Someone mentioned it was a weird day with the wind, waves and current direction, and I agree. It seemed for us a southwesterly troll was smoothest. I did not use hunt mode with my itroll today because with the current,wind and waves it would be too hard to program in the right settings. I tried to maintain my speed from 1.6 to 2.3. I will be back out there Saturday waves permitting. Moral of my story-lesson learned for today was, try everything and see what works.
