My brother and 7 year old nephew came up and fished with Parker and I yesterday. We hit the water a little after 8am and ran up to where we fished last week.

We ran 3oz snap weights on one side and 4oz on the other, all spoons. Never saw a difference between colors or backs but the 4oz side caught a couple more fish then the 3oz. We did do the best in one particular section SW of 1&2 buoys in 25' of water.

Ended up with 12 walleye, 1 perch and threw back 3 sheepshead. Parker did most of the reeling but brother and I got to bring in a couple since both kids fell asleep and wouldn't wake up. Pulled lines about 1:45pm.

Getting things figured out. Still don't know what to do with the rods over the sides. Tried a 65mm Deeper Diver but it still doesn't dive on a steep enough angle for me. Maybe I'll just run another set of boards or go to a 6oz weight over the side.

The line is out of the water behind the boat so the board gets caught in it or the weight when that comes in. The angles bad. I thought about getting different rod holders that will go parallel but I'm not sure that will work, either.

It will Nick.  We run regular size mono dipseys on 1 out 40 to 60 with great success.  Rod is parallel or one notch up.
