I hadn’t been on the lake since last Friday and things had changed considerably for trolling. In the days that I missed, the weather had cooled along with surface temps. The surface temps dropped 5 degrees and the fish went deep with the rising barometer. They had me stumped for awhile but yesterday the 12th we finally figured out a pattern that worked. We hit em with the downriggers early and caught a couple, and then threw the leadcore at em. The key was to get the heavy stuff down to them.
I had the pleasure of fishing with a couple of fellow veterans and we had a blast. Jamie and Eric Both caught fish with Alex working the deck hand duties. Here’s a little video of our trip on the 12th.
