Hello all Iam wanting to trailer my boat to central Lake Erie to fish those deep water walleye in july and Aug.I cant troll because i dont have a kicker motor and my outboard is a 2 stroke.So i was wondering if there was any way to cast or drift for those eyes I know they usally hang out in the 50 ft. to all the way to the bottom any Ideas or ways to catch those eyes would be greatly appericated you can email me at email@example.com thanks to all
Its possible to cast for fish in thr central basin. Just no where near as effective when the fiah go that deep. Imho its all about having baits in the strike zone. Casting with fiah that deep is very inefficient at keepinv a lure 50 deep.
i was troling with 135Hp 2 stroke motor.they make plate for motor to slow the speed,it is as flaper around $100,when you drive it is up,when you troll you put that down behine the prop ,the prop is pushing water and the plate is blocking full force to propel the boat,that slow the boat to troling speed.
i would get kiker or minn kota terova electric motor bow mount.
for safety the kiker is best and you can operate all day with 6 gallon's gass,
with big motor and plate you may burn 20-30 gallon's a day.
you can use kiker all time even on lake with limit 9Hp.it depend how many time you wonet to use that.with troling you caver more water,beter chance to cach fish.now they cath fish 15' to 25' deep in 50' of water,
you can use the plates or the bags to slow you down. i prefer to use the easy troller trolling plate. i use one on my big boat with a 350 vortec 315 hp and i have to give it just alittle gas to get up to trolling speed. i also use one on my little 15 ft tri hull open bow, i have an old 81 inline 6 cyl mercury 2 cycle motor on it. and its the same way, i have to give it just alittle extra gas to troll. i can troll all day and have never had it load up on me. but after i get done trolling i always go for alittle run down the lake just to clean the motor out. and shes good to go the next time i go trolling.
I've got a '99 Merc OB. I use 2 trolling bags and haven't had a problem with the plugs. They usally get changed every spring with new ones and the old ones cleaned and kept in the boat as backups.
Plus after I'm done trolling it a run back to the ramp, Helps clean them off.
