[19:55:27] Babby{WCS}: Ted, I figured we could start by having you kind of start out

on "How you got started into fishing"

[19:55:56] Ted: I started fishing walleye on Lake Okoboji in Iowa with a friend of mine,

John Campbell

[19:56:18] Ted: We went to Canada many years in a row and took fishing classes from

a close

[19:56:29] Ted: friend of mine Spence Petros

[19:57:07] ebijack (mi): when was that ted

[19:57:10] Ted: Once we started to catch fish on a consistent basis we tried our first

tournament on the Illinois River (masters walleye circuit)

[19:57:10] Ted: Once we started to catch fish on a consistent basis we tried our first

tournament on the Illinois River (masters walleye circuit)

[19:57:28] Ted: We fished our first tournament in 1989

[19:57:32] Babby{WCS}: So is this what kind of kicked you off on your treck?

[19:57:55] Ted: We didn't catch a single fish at our first tournament

TECHNIQUES THAT WORK FOR YO

[20:02:12] Babby{WCS}: TED GIVE US A SMALL INSIGHT TO TROLLING

TECHNIQUES THAT WORK FOR YO

[20:02:37] Ted: You can troll spinner rigs as well as crankbaits

[20:02:55] Ted: It is critically important to fish where the fish are. I use electronics

extensively

[20:03:19] *** ozarkeyes has joined Walleye Central

[20:03:26] Babby{WCS}: PLEASE HOLD QUESTIONS UNTIL TED FINISHES

[20:03:29] *** ozarkeyes has left Walleye Central

[20:03:34] Ted: Spread your lines with trolling boards, but sometimes the fish will take

the bait with rods in rod holders next to the boat

[20:03:44] LS: Ted, are you saying if nothing is on the locator don't fish it?

[20:03:57] Ted: Make sure that you are putting your lure in various parts of the water

column

[20:04:21] Ted: If there is nothing on my electronics, I don't stay very long maybe 15

minutes or so

[20:04:32] Golden: ebijack, big problem lost the first page, are you on it?

[20:04:40] ebijack (mi): you bet

[20:05:02] Ted: I'm still here though

[20:05:13] Babby{WCS}: QUESTIONS?

[20:05:29] Karl G: What electronics do you use?

[20:05:35] ebijack (mi): do you prefer flasher or lcr ted?

[20:05:47] Ted: I use Bottomline's Champion HR, it has super high resolution

[20:06:01] LS: Ted is there a certain brand of crankbaits you prefer?

[20:06:19] Ted: LCR is excellent because it has memory. I don't need to keep my eyes

on the screen all the time

[20:07:18] ebijack (mi): howdy na

[20:07:37] Ted: I like metallics on sunny days and bright colors on dark days

[20:07:59] Ted: I like slender shaped baits because they have a tight wobble

[20:08:11] Golden: I've always heard to use bright lures on sunny days and dark lures

on cloudy days

[20:08:14] LS: what rods do you use to pull cranks

[20:08:43] Ted: I use Pinnacle's IMT 8 1/2 Steelhead rods for pulling boards

[20:08:43] Ted: I use Pinnacle's IMT 8 1/2 Steelhead rods for pulling boards

[20:09:08] Ted: They have enough backbone yet are flexible enough to fight the

smaller fish

[20:09:30] Karl G: Do you use a line counter? Which ones? Why?

[20:09:46] Ted: I do use line counter reels extensively for trolling only

[20:07:59] Ted: I like slender shaped baits because they have a tight wobble

[20:09:46] Ted: I do use line counter reels extensively for trolling only

[20:10:04] Ted: Daiwa's LC27 have a very good drag system and are reliable

[20:10:44] Ted: I need to know quickly how much line is out. Crankbaits are

dependent upon line behind the boat or board

[20:11:03] ebijack (mi): ted, do you use fireline?

[20:11:24] Karl G: Have you found a particular planer board that works better than

others?

[20:11:26] Ted: I have not had the need to use fireline yet. there are some times when

it might be useful

[20:11:59] Ted: Stren Magnathin is my favorite line. I use it for everything. 8# for

jigging, 10# for trolling

[20:12:24] Ted: I use modified Cannon Rover boards for trolling. They are wooden and

track very well in rough water

[20:12:52] Ted: I am sorry, I use 12# Magnithin for tolling

[20:41:05] Golden: Jigging eddies and pools?

[20:41:07] null: having trouble tonite

[20:41:25] Ted: Any current breaks are prime candidates

[20:41:32] null: hi

[20:41:44] Karl G: What areas of the river do you concentrate your trolling efforts?

[20:41:45] Ted: I spend a lot of time looking at the surface for eddies

[20:42:03] Ted: Large flats that are tucked behind bends in the river

[20:42:19] Ted: 8 to 10 feet of water is excellent

[20:44:24] Babby{WCS}: TED LETS TALK JIGGING IN WEEDS

[20:44:29] Karl G: Null make sure you are entering and alias

[20:44:29] ebijack (mi): ted, how come you use a 25hp kicker

[20:44:44] Ted: Jigging weeds in good in the summer

[20:44:57] Ted: I concentrate on the pockets and use a leech or crawler

[20:45:05] capt tom ar: test

[20:45:12] Ted: I use a 25hp kicker for power

[20:45:34] Ted: it still trolls down slow enough

[20:45:55] Ted: if i need to move left or right, it goes right away

[20:46:22] ebijack (mi): did you discover this buy experimenting with motors

[20:46:29] capt tom ar: Ted why are all the motors used in the PWT almost always

Mariner?

[20:46:44] Ted: A friend of mine used it, he like it and I then tried and like it

[20:47:05] Ted: Many of the pros on the PWT use Mariner or Mercury because they

are reliable

[20:47:17] Ted: and there is a tech rep on site at every tournament

[20:47:26] Babby{WCS}: TED, DO YOU TROLL HARNESSES NEAR OR OVER

WEED BEDS?

[20:47:29] Ted: in case there are any problems

[20:47:46] Ted: I often troll spinners over and next to weeds

[20:47:56] Ted: There are a lot of walleyes in weeds that people overlook

[20:48:08] Ted: I'll use a bullet sinker when fishing weeds

[20:48:19] Golden: Whats the best way to get those walleye out of the weeds?

[20:48:20] Ted: The walleye were thick in the weeds at St. Clair

[20:48:23] ebijack (mi): how long of a leader?

[20:48:38] Ted: spinners are a great way

[20:48:39] Babby{WCS}: WHATS THE SECRET TO KEEPING WEEDLESS

HARNESSES?

[20:48:52] Ted: I use a leader starting at 5-6 feet

[20:49:06] Ted: I then shorten it if I am snagging alot

[20:49:10] capt tom ar: thank the weeds from zebra mussel investation

[20:49:32] Ted: It is tough to keep the weeds off of the spinners

[20:50:03] Ted: keep checking and i would rather have weeds that not be where the

fish are

[20:50:34] capt tom ar: Ted if you a sensitive rod you can feel the added weight

immediately

[20:50:53] Ted: That is true

[20:51:21] Ted: I often use rod holder and very flexible rod when trolling spinners

[20:51:41] Babby{WCS}: TED WHAT IS A TYPICAL PLANNING PHASE FOR YOU

FOR PREPARING FOR UPCOMING TOURNAMENT?

[20:51:47] Ted: I'll catch more fish sometimes with a dead rod

[20:53:07] Ted: Maps are key for preparation

[20:53:15] Ted: the more detailed the better

[20:53:27] Ted: I will circle what i think are key spots

[20:53:31] Babby{WCS}: CONTAINERS FOR EACH TOURNAMENT?

[20:53:46] Ted: Like the the Flambeau Stow and Go's

[20:53:52] Golden: How do you use a map to prepare? Look for river beds adjacent to

drop off or how?

[20:54:02] ebijack (mi): ted, do you do fly overs like the bass guys?

[20:54:14] Babby{WCS}: SO YOU PREPARE TACKLE BY EACH BODY OF WATER?

[20:54:16] Ted: Many lakes have hydrographic maps with contours

[20:54:41] Ted: I keep like things with like things i.e. electronics,

[20:54:54] Ted: line, etc.

[20:55:00] ebijack (mi): howdy zak2

[20:55:24] Ted: I have not done a fly over yet, although it would have been beneficial

at St. Clair where it is clear

[20:58:38] Ted: There are big bodies of water with limited time

[20:59:09] Ted: It is important that the teams don't get out of hand

[20:59:39] Ted: Fall fishing on a large reservoir, I would pull live bait rigs behind bottom

bouncer

[20:59:48] Ted: and troll crankbaits along the shoreline

[21:00:17] LS: what would you use for bait?

[21:00:33] Ted: At this time of the year, I would use a nightcrawler or red tail chub

PLAY IN PROMOTING WALLEYE FISHING TODAY AND IN THE FUTURE?
