Default trolling bite starting

Saturday - After a slow LTJ bite (some dinks, a couple low 20"ers, and one ~30") we moved to trolling and hooked up with not a lot of time with lines in the water.

Water temps were 39-41 degrees BTW.



Sunday - Willy P. got a nice on trolling on his new 36 Judge

Nice fish!

Love the twin Suzuki 350's.

I'm assuming they're twins and there's not a third one that can't be seen in the picture?

The trolling bite hasn't started for us yet

We were out yesterday morning scraping ice off the boat (Capt John's Boat) at 7am. We dropped 6 boat rods off the back because the "marks" we saw were 50 ft down
No bait on the screen, but we did see about 20 gannets flying today

Close to 10am; with the sun higher in the sky, we put out one board and had 4 lines off board and two deep lines.

No jellies yet

Trolled until about noon without even a knockdown.

Capt John did cook us lunch onboard, so that was great

Unfortunately, his mate from last year had to take a "real" job, so if you or anyone you know is looking for a position, let Capt John know.

I know this was probably directed at Bfaithful, but I thought I might respond.

My Green vs White has really gone through a transition. When I started trolling, I ran one side of my boat white, the other green. Then, for years, I mixed my colors. I run 14 board lines total, and I would alternate green on rod one, white on rod two, green on rod three, and so on.

This year, I will still have green or white tandems in my spread, but ALL my umbrellas will have white teasers (the lure may be green).

If you look at many of the Charter boats sitting at the dock, many of them pull ALL umbrellas. My boards aren't big enough to accomplish this, therefore, I stagger my board lines (tandem, umbrella, tandem,umbrella). Many Charters pull ALL white umbrella teasers, but mix white/green lures behind them.

I'm slowly doing the same thing. As I run out of green teasers, I only buy white teaser as replacements.

I realize that some days white or green is the hot lure, so I will stay with mixed lures (you can even mix head hair and shad bodies). White hair with green shad works just fine.

Just simply don't get caught with all one color.

This week my white has been doing best. However green was better a couple of weeks ago... who knows. Long off the boards have been best though with cold water

45 degrees still today and very little bait. Had some jellies
