Haha! Did they put up a fight or did you drag 'em around for a few miles before you realized they were on?
How's the walleye fishing been? I miss my boat and the fantastic water around TC and the EUP! Gonna steal the boss' boat and see if I can snag some small eyes today on Canyon Ferry. It's not the same as home though
one of them actually released from the rigger
the other's you just notice the slightest odd jiggle in the rod tip, of course you didn't really have to look, just bring them up every time you bump bottom and one will be there (we were dragging some cowbells and a peanut just to prevent a skunking)
the bigger laker released on the downrigger and just as I was about to hand the rod to jr one of the church boards dissapeared and started peeling line off the rod.... let me tell you pulling in a double is a feat in a 14' tin boat. we have been catching fish 3 to one on the longlines and planers, I think the fish have wised up with the clear water we got now. dropped to 17 pound flouro for leaders and that has seemed to give us some better action also.
Havent been out after walley in a coule of weeks, we may hit north lake leelanau tomorrow and drag two lines for lakers and four for walleye. depends on the weather, if it's calm we may hit the bay again for sammies. jr. is dieing to get out the spears and go after whitefish also, maybe a little early though
good luck in the canyon
