    Are you doing it at the lowest temp you can and then turning up the temp at the end to get the fish up to the "safe" 165 degrees for eating? Or do you keep the temp low the whole time and not do a...

    So it sounds like even if you go where you think there are fish, you don't just park and cast. You try to verify there are some fish.

    Do you roam around hunting for the fish, or just go to what you know are established spots?

    How old is that impeller, and how much use does the motor see? I replace mine at about two years and they tend to look almost new. Granted, I don't live on the water, but I put my share of time in....

    Re: Trolling Spinners with downriggers

    Another thing to think about is the downrigger ball may adjust for the depth under the boat, but the lure is what, 50 to 100 feet behind the boat. Say the water depth quickly drops off from 15 to 30...

    Re: Damn they're tasty

    Learn to debone them and smoke them. Easily as good as salmon, if not better. I know...sacrilege, but based on my last batch, totally true.

    Re: 5/1 & 5/2 below Verona

    Were any of the boats catching shad. Last year I did not catch a single shad there from the boat, and saw very few others even trying there last year. The year before it was just the opposite.
