Oxman, You don't need lots of special stuff to troll. For years we used to flatline four rods off the back of the boat. I sometimes run two boards out each side and two lines straight back. Sometimes those lines out back get bit more than boards. Get some flashy #5 Flicker Shads and #4 Salmos , cast out back off the boat, count to ten or fifteen and click your reel over. That should get it to 75 to 100' back.Set drag so not extremely tight. I troll with berk mono xt10 lb strictly. Run at speed of 1.8 to 2.2,2.4 and your bound to catch something. Start at Longview and head cross lake to the lure. Great body of water to learn. Specially if you hook into a nice slot fish.Peace and good trolling.

Coming up Sunday and Monday. Never fished petenwell before I don't have a trolling set up, so looking for somewhere to catch maybe some eyes, bass, musky, panfish, really anything. Thanks for any help and I will share how I do when I return.

Went out Sun. with some old friends from 7 am. to 12 noon. This time I did not use cranks. I went out side the box, I used crawlers and harness, with a number 4 shot, and I do have to say going out side was very good.Over the next 5 hours it was non stop, we caught to many short eyes to count, 13 slots, 7 keepers all the same 16-17 in.crappies,WB, and two SKIS. and a few we lost.We did get pics. with the phones, now I have to find out how to down load them. We did keep only 20 crappies and wb, for a fry on Mon. I did get a few pics. when I got home of the crappie and wb. If anyone would like info. on how I was doing it just feel free to PM. me.

Hi, Going to the dam in a few weeks. What is better in mid September the upper dam or lower? Are walleyes there and legal size? Any info would be great. We have not been up there in about 15 years.

We trolled from 7 am till noon and boated 1 "keeper", 14 "shorties", 7 crappies, 8 white bass, 15 cat, and 4 sheephead. Big Smile
