We went off Dunkrik today Aug 30. Went out to 105 FOW. Only caught 2  walleyes about 17 inchers. Tons of bait balls on the screen, and seemed to be lots of fish too, but could not get them to take.  fish were from 20 feet to 80 feet down. Water temp 71 degrees the entire way to 100 FOW. No temp difference at all. Lots of boats out there today. We fished from 80 to 105 FOW. Could not break the secret code. No thermocline.

GarryNY...did you keep any lures/baits in that 20 foot from surface depth? I know it may be hard to when all the reports are 50 to 80 ft down. But when bait is high in water column there usually seems to be some big fish up high after that bait

yes we fished the entire water column. Had one rod with just a diving plug on it, probably went down 10 to 15 feet. Tried riggers at 30 feet, all the way to 90. Tried divers with 150 to 300  feet of line out.   kept speed at 1.4 to 1.7. I guess that may have been too slow?

I've been using Michigan Stingers and swapping out the treble for a couple snelled hooks with beads. They have a rainbow trout pattern that has been working well for me. Spoons have been slow for me until I started swapping and hanging meat.

How many are you guys boating to catch a 2 man limit?I boated 19 today out of barcelona and only kept 8 all over 18 inches threw back some could of been keepers just don't like keeping them little guys.

Your about rite.  half of the fish we've been catching are over 18", that's my personal low size limit. Not enough meat on a 15" fish for me.

to get 12 keepers we have to catch between 20 and 26 fish.
