30 July on the Upper End

A couple of days ago bobby b on this forum sent me a message. He asked if I could give him a few pointers on trolling for walleye. I pointed him at an article and invited him to join me this morning.

We left the marina in the fog at 5:30 this morning and motored slowly until we could see to get up on plane. I took us down lake past Big M and began to show him walleye structure of various kinds and how to use what equipment to maximize his chances. In the first three hours we caught a few bass and one sub-legal walleye. Not very impressive guiding. Upstream of Eagle Rock I caught a nice crappie and put it in the box.I hoped it would not jinx the rest of the day.

At the last spot I planned to show him, he caught a sub-legal walleye as well. On the second pass, he hooked up with a good fish, right at 24 inches and 4 pounds.What a relief! All the pressure evaporated.

Water temp 82.5.
