Trolling in Febuary...and Getting Giant Walleye

We actually had to use the boat and its wake to clear a path to troll on Sunday morning.  The short Youtube video shows the planerboards riding up on and sliding across the ice....wild stuff.  Check the link below for a short video of it!!!!!!

We did manage to get some absolute giants...and even had about thirty fish to boot. Trolling crankbaits on Lake Erie in February and actually smashing giant walleyes. Reef Runners and Husky Jerks were the best, trolled very slow. I will likely be guiding in March if anyone is interested in a trip, this should be a good time to get some monsters!!!!

Tricked out Rig

It's that time of year where you don't have much safe ice and many days its pretty darn cold to open water fish.  With a few of the major ramps clearing out this week we plan on making an open water trip soon.

On a separate note my good friend Todd Koehler is fishing both FLW and BASS Tour opens this year.  This will have him fishing from Florida back to Michigan and everywhere in between. here is a pic of his freshly wrapped truck...notice the Bigwater love near the tailgate. SWEET RIG TODD!!!!!
