April 20th Walleye - Point 5ish area

Doing better than I. Then again, I haven't really targeted walleye specifically for a while. The ones I have caught have been really skinny. Which is disconcerting. Hopefully there is nothing wrong?

Those look great. I always struggle with getting my trolling speed down. Have fast do you think you averaged?

I went out with a friend in his new boat. The slowest it would troll with his Merc 115 4-Stoke was 3 mph. When trolled against the wind the speed was less, but he kept his graph on sonar so I'm not sure of the speed then. For some odd reason, I caught all the fish today and most were caught with the wind at 3 mph.

Ah this was that fully loaded Ranger? Man that thing had whistles for its whistles! Slick rig!

3mph??? What prop did you guys put on there? A 22? I run 2.6 and 2.7 typically but with the wind, 3mph can occur. He should be running a 20 or a 21 max.

This was another guy...with a Lowe 195 Stinger. The wind helped with that 3 mph but that seemed to be the winning speed today. 20 seems to be the magic # for the prop.

Ah. I see.

Yes. The 20 is just right on the Merc 115 four stroke.
