Hey folks,

So I have continued to experiment with the mini lake troll/crank bait combo. I know lake trolls are usually used behind dipseys, weights or downriggers but in this rig I use a crank bait to pull the lake troll down. I had good luck with it in this video that I filmed a few weeks ago so I decided to name it "The Kokemachine Special". Enjoy the video and I hope everyone is having luck out there.[YOUTUBE]https://youtu.be/-oNO_IpzwlM[/YOUTUBE]

When I put it in I thought it was kind of a light hearted track, but looking back now I can hear where you are coming from. It is a little growly. I was playing around with a new synthesizer. I wish the natural audio was recorded better with my action Cam. It does a great job of catching all the bangs and clicks but leaves out the waves. I'm working out a new audio set up so hopefully I can capture the sounds of fishing a little better and not have to rely on adding music as much.

Thanks for the good words.

I was trying to do more research on lake trolls but I found it difficult to find a lot info about their use. I wonder if they go by another term? They always have a bunch available at Canadian Tire so they obviously have enough people using them.

@gino That day the deepest I was fishing was about 15-16 feet but the biggest fish were in 8 feet or less. The deepest it gets within canoe distance from my pad is about 20 ft and I didn't get out that far. I've been out a few times since but haven't seen the same number of walleyes in the same areas but I can say that bass have arrived.

I wish I was getting into the sheepies more often. I usually only catch one once a year out this way. Get that Sportspal out there. I really enjoy canoe fishing.

I only fish out of the canoe good rig back in the day I put an inline spinner on the line added 3 feet of line to the rear eye and trailed it with a floating rapala. Looks like the Rapala is chasing the spinner. Similar to your rig. Looks like the minnow is chasing the panther blades.

Try some plastic swim baits in the shallows point rides up and it bounces off most of the rocks. Chat white or black for the pickerel. And just about anything else that is around.

tight lines

That sounds like a great rig. I'll have to give it a shot.

As for the swim baits I have had great luck with those for bass in the shallows this time of year. I'll have to whip them out.
