Priority1

8/1/2013 Saginaw Bay Walleye

Recommended Posts

I had the extreme pleasure of fishing with Sean, Tom A, and Jim H, for a four man miscount. We farmed a 19-20 inch walleye at the end of the trip. Next trip one guy will be in charge of the count and I'll make sure he has his shoes off.:lol: Someone is going to make a count next time when the 18th fish is netted. I sure would rather be 1 short than one over. It's good thing Dutch wasn't with us. He would have been really p!$$ed. It was nice to start but we then the wind picked up and we had some 3 footers. We had a few tangles, and a busted rod but other than that it was a great trip. Sean was a boy a few years ago when his grandpa Jim brought him aboard Priority1 for a 25 fish trip. He did the work of a man this trip helping set lines and netting fish. Jim is teaching him well. Everything we had down was taking fish. We started with a 12 rod spread but scaled back to 10 when conditions worsened. 3oz BB off the down rods and 2oz BB off the Offshore boards with flag kits. I just love being out there. I gave my fish away again this trip.

Terry, I stayed on em until the middle of August last year and quit because I had honey do s backed up a mile. It is far easier and more consistent in June. Like your side it's all about water temps. Today we had 69-70 on the surface which is so unusually cold for this time of the year. I fished within a 1/2 mile circle for 6 weeks straight including the trip you were there. That in itself is unusual. June had a lot of E NE winds that kept the fish in my pocket. I'm running a little bit now but not bad.

Frank, as always good job! I can't believe that after all these years you still can't count to 20 without skipping a number. Keep practicing my friend!

That's why I keep going. I'm just trying to get it right.:lol: On the other hand if I get it right it would be one less reason to keep going.:D
