Hi,

I've had some good luck this year at 80-110 FOW, anchor down and jig........
Lipless cranks, tubes and spoons.

Good luck

Thanks? I donít have any trolling gear, and my fishfinder isnít the best at showing fish so Iím practically blind out there.

We rented a place there for 6 days. This was in late July in the portion of the lake toward Dorset. Big lake and I had never been there before and didn't know the lake at all...I brought the downriggers and trolled the way I would on any lake when targeting Lakers - run bait/lure as close to bottom (or ticking off bottom once in a while) as possible. When I troll for Lakers I'm constantly adjusting the ball depth, one eye on FF, adjust depth to match bottom. I had never been there and caught many Lakers on every outing plus a couple bonus whitefish. The lake seems to be absolutely loaded with life - fish and baitfish.

You may not have downriggers, but you don't need them. Vertical jigging with typical jigging spoons, tube jigs, jigging raps, etc... Get to bottom in 50 to 70 ft. Find spots where it jumps up from 70-80 ft to 50-60 ft. Fish the transition portion and the 50-60 ft flat with a vertical jigging presentation and you'll find Lakers. The FF may not show fish, but that doesn't matter. If it shows depth contours you'll find them. Lakers are often laying with bellies on bottom and may not show up on the graph, or just look like a rock...

As others have said, you could get a couple Dipsys if you want to try trolling deep and don't want to invest in downriggers.

Good luck.

Thanks, Im going to go out again on saturday and give er a shot, Im gonna get some dipsey's and try trolling but will deffinetly try jigging the points and breakes aswell, what do you guys usually troll with?

I second that, a slow troll with a silver williams wabbler is a safe bet
