    I’ve had some tremendous days at church there at St. Paul’s, just gotta be the day the eyes are trying to get right with the Lord!

    Does anyone know if the nine mile ramp is still open? Or is there a better spot to launch close to walleye grounds?

    Alter is $10... He is also parking rigs in the lot to the west so its not too tight.

    We trolled bandits 4.5 hrs yesterday from the delphine to the mouth for a pair of smb. Water was very clear...5' of visibility. Sure they are stacked up on the south shore on the queens side.

    We were out there as well and had nothing trolling the same areas as you for 4 hrs. Then we moved N by GPYC and deeper and ended up with a 2-man limit, and a 48” musky. There was a nice stained area further out that we were working with about 25 other boats.

    sorry for the delay in coming back to this thread as my browser takes me to the river/Erie forum. But I jig the lake, albeit a slower drift, just like the river. 3/4 oz with either a Wyandotte worm or fin S tipped with a piece of crawler or minnow.

    Bandits work great. We ran 55, 50, 45, and 40 back last weekend and got some quality fish.

    Nice. 35-40 seemed to be best for us, but we didn't run that many deeper for very long. I may give it another shot on Sunday.

    I almost always start trolling with a Seyka perch bandit 36’ back and another 44’ back, then another one of my go to colors 36 to 40 back. If the water clarity is low the fluorescent colors come out, but I will always have one perch colored bait working on LSC
