A few are being caught!   :)

Those are some happy kids! Any advice on depth or gear?

Hey fowlr, what kind of phone do you have?  I need to switch mine and have noticed your pics are always limits.  Mine must be broken.

I usually fish at 35' or deeper always.  I troll from .7 to 1 mph typically.  I don't troll in a straight line.
I make my own gear for trolling, so it isn't something that you see from Mac's or others.  It works good, so I have been tight lipped on it.  Otherwise it may be hanging on shelves in short order.   :tup:
Cut em!
It's not the shells!  It's the shooter!

Heading up to Baker tomorrow. Any recent reports and locations? I.E. are they still catching 'em near the dam or have they started catching 'em mid lake?

It's been a hit or a miss, doesn't seem like they are liking the normal gear.
