  1. It makes sense, because these fish have been hugging the bottom all summer, which eastern basin fish tend to do. The western basin fish are the ones who spawn in rivers and suspend in the summer. I hope you're right, because the walleye fishing should be just as good for the next few summers!
  2. Interesting. Do you think these are the fish that spawn in the Hamburg area in the spring? What could be the reason for so many fish all of the sudden?

    New to Downriggers

    One thing you have to remember is that if your downrigger is set at whatever depth you're fishing at, you're probably nowhere near the bottom. For example, if your downrigger is 70 feet down, but you're trolling with the cable at a 45 degree angle, then you're probably only in 50 feet of depth. This August, fish have been hugging the bottom in 70 feet of water, I'll set my downrigger at 85 feet and still not be touching bottom. It seems like most hits are coming by popping the release and allowing the bait to flutter up. I use Dubro releases, I can't get any of the pinch-pad types to work.
