Well I made it back from my first downrigging trip to Lake of the Woods.
We fished all day on Friday and Saturday. We did not have the storms like you guys had around here.
The wind on the other hand made it pretty interesting on the water. You definatly have to be a bit of a "sea dog" to handle this big water.
I heard alot of chatter on the radio from other people that they were brining people back to the shore.

We fished out of Long Point and headed over to gull rock staying in 30 to 34 feet of water.
Our best color was a transperent Purple or Blue rapala.
I am not sure if I am ready to re-rig my boat yet but it was definatly something that everyone should try.
There were two groups of us that went and for the group our biggest was 29 1/4, 28 and 26 1/2.
We released a good mess of 20 some inchers also.
We also had plenty of fish to bring home.

Some people labled downrigger fishing as cheating but I am still trying to figure that out?

I also notice two different boats vertical fishing with a bottom bouncer and a 3ft lindy rig?
That just doesnt sit right in my mind....can anyone explain?

I was once again with a new bunch of guys and did not get over there.
I did not have a rig to drive with I was just riding.

I did email him prior to going though.

Why do some consider down rigging cheating?

I have never done it but it just seems like another tool in the arsenal.

Hey Sand Burr..

Those are some pretty sweet eyes there! Congrats to you and your fishing partners. What was the water temp up on LOTW and what speed were you guys trolling at?

I wouldn't use the term cheating they use downrigging because of the ease of use and catch rates for large groups of anglers be it skilled or unskilled anglers it's pretty easy anybody can do it.

I've done it on LOW and it's fun in the right situation but I prefer to use my own fishing pole and conventional methods when ever possible.

Great report thanks!>
