  1. Fished this past Sun. thru Tues.. plenty of fish still there. Had to work for them one day.. the other two they came pretty easily... ps.. the restrooms are closed now, but the launch is free! Sluggo Sent from my iPad
  2. Jim.. One came on a silver Sutton 88.. The other on a watermellon NK. I honestly don't think it matters.. They'd probably hit a beer can if you put it down there.
  3. Paul.. We stayed at the Theater. We'll be there again next week. Had no problem getting a room.
  4. Fished most of last week out of Barcelona Harbor. Did best east of the harbor around Brocton Shoal. Larger fish seemed to be over deeper water on the outside of the shoal.. Fish on or inside ran smaller, but still nice fish. We ended up with around 35, with most in the 3 to 4 lb. range. Never really patterned them. One day it was mostly harnesses, the next day it was all stickbaits. Can't even offer a preferred depth as we got them from 35 to 60 feet down. Surface temp was in the mid seventies and we still read 70+ 60 feet down. We're going to give it another shot next week. If you want lakers.. Just drop a spoon down to bottom in 120 feet or so and wait a couple of minutes. It took us about 10 minutes to grab a couple for the smoker. I'll try to attach a few pictures.. Good Fishing, Sluggo (Chris)
  5. Welcome aboard Mike. If you're interested in summer time walleye.. Barcelona or Dunkirk are good spots to launch. Personally, I prefer Barcelona. We stay in Westfield and drag the boat each morning. If you want .. I'll let you know when we make plans to head out there. I can shoot you lodging details if you want. Good Fishing, Sluggo (Chris)
  6. My buddy Fred Forsythe has been heading up a weekend in July where he and others offer a free weekend fishing trip to combat wounded veterans for the past five years or so. I know he's always looking for volunteers. Go to his site at castawaycharters.net and click on heroes at the top for info. Thanks, Sluggo (Chris)
  7. We run almost all sticks and spoons.. Once in a while we'll drag some harnesses, but they attract the white bass so badly we seldom run them. As already mentioned.. The front hook gets removed and on the Renosky's..the remaining hooks get changed out. I love their Stickbaits but hate their hooks! Our best producing spoons are the NK28's in watermellon..tipped with a piece of crawler. As for speeds.. We seldom hit 2 mph..usually closer to 1.5. Like everyone, we have our slow days..but we always seem to have done as well or better than most when we get back to the launch. Can't wait to get out there! Good Fishing, Sluggo (Chris)
  8. I used Roemer's for years and loved them..separate tension adjustment for rod and lure. Had to replace a few and found that they no longer have triggers made of metal, they're now plastic. Braided lines wear a grove into the plastic and the line hang up on the release. I've tried both Blacks and Chamberlains and prefer the Chamberlains. Both work fine, but the adjustment seem to work better and holds it's setting better than the Blacks. Either one will work fine for walleye, but I obviously don't recommend the Roemer's.

  16. Just trying to post a pic from a new iPad.. rough day on Erie
  17. Thanks for the reports Juls. We're hoping to sneak out your way soon. Good Fishing, Sluggo (Chris)
  18. I totally agree..except..downrigging is still my favorite trolling method. No "stuff" on the line except a fish once that release goes. I always let my buddy beat me to the 10 color for some reason. As for those junk Renosky's.. Yes..the hooks suck and yes..I've had a couple crack down the center..never had hooks pull out..yet.. But they flat out catch fish!
  19. I'm running 10# flouro leader on all my rigs. I've tried running shorter leads..but longer ones seem to work better for me. To be perfectly honest..my downriggers are the worst producers in my Arsenal for walleyes. Work fine for everything else, but not for eyes.
  20. Watermellon is my "go to" spoon color. As for how far back... For walleye, I run everything at least 100' behind the ball.
  21. Renosky's.. With replacement hooks Reef Runners Michigan Stingers Harnesses.. If we're bored and want to catch white bass
  22. Paul.. dinner certainly isn't necessary, but I'll accept a cold beverage!
