Bottom bouncers will keep your leader line away from your main line to the rod because the drift speed or trolling speed keeps the harness or stick out straight behind the weight. Just be sure to let out the line from your reel in a controlled drop. Dropping too fast could cause your harness to spiral around your main line. Most bouncers have a wire leg that keeps the leader several inches away from the main line as well.

2 man limit off the Catt, 56' of water. Threw back 5 shorts. All fish between 18-23". Riggers on the the bottom with harnesses. Dipsys on 2 setting 80' with sticks. Bottom 20' loaded with fish. A lot of boats were out deeper, maybe a half dozen fishing this area.IMG_1026.thumb.jpeg.7d22c7eda26c02330195109b2a356af3.jpeg

Fished 11:30-4pm. Noaa & the app windy were so wrong. When we got to the marina, boats were coming in saying the lake is too rough 3-4' waves. My 18' boat has enough trouble in 2' waves, but we decided to check it out. The lake was rough, but the waves were not quite 3 footers. It took a long time to find fish & it was a slow ride all the way. It was a NE wind as we found some good marks off Evangola State Park in 72' of water.  As soon as we got there, the lake started to lay down and the waves got smaller as the day wore on. We got a 2 man limit. Riggers on the bottom with gold harnesses were hot, most other colors didn't product. Dipsys on 2 setting 145-150' back with sticks, Renoskys & Reef Runner 800. We saw only 2 other boats on the lake.

To be honest with ya, the fish are everywhere! Doesn’t matter where ya go from Dunkirk where I am, to buffalo, just stay in from 55 ft to 70 ft , you’ll catch fish! As long as you have the right gear of course, we’re running 5 color on the big boards with Reynoski sticks, working awesome, along with our dipseys on 2 setting at least 100ft back , and the riggers. Really haven’t had the need to rub the meat yet

Well yesterday was our shake down run on the New to us boat. We used all sticks because we forgot the worms. Today was another great day for us. Only fished 1.5 hours but managed 12 fish. All sticks again because we remembered the worms when we left but they cooked real nice in the truck while we fished. All colors seemed equal. Riggers worked today. 56 to 60 ft was the best. Seemed like a little faster was the ticket. 2 to 2.2 all eaters biggest was about 25 inches.

Thanks for the report. We're going Sunday. Last time we were out 2 weeks ago we had better luck in about 85 feet. We'll try 55 to start this time.

Just got done. August 4. Fished from 0630 to 1130. Only caught 8. I went East a bit from the jetty. In 55 FOW the water temp 63 degrees 45 feet down. 75 degree surface. Nice thermocline. But this only in small area. Once we moved out of there the temp break was only a couple degrees. Walleyes were marked there, but no bites. We went deeper and caught fish from 63 to 70. Used stick baits mostly. Leadcore 5, 7, 8, and 10 color. Dipseys, and riggers.

Fished 2 hours today. Bite seemed to be faster again with 2.1 to 2.3 producing the most fish. Good bite between 50 and 60. Boated 12. Took them on both sticks and harnesses. Everything got hit except a 7 color. Dipsey between 140 and 80. Good luck. Beautiful day on the lake.
