"Nice report. And how did you go about finding them? Electronics?"
Yes we used electronics to find fish and scout for depths, reefs and humps.
We did a lot of trolling with harnesses so a lot of time we would just pick a general area that looked good and start trolling to help pin point them...after we got a few we might stop in that area and jig and/or cast perch rapallas....or troll through again.
Wind blown bays were our first targets...2nd was rocky points and third was submerged islands near deeper water.
One morning we searched for a couple hours and only had two fish in the boat...I casted a perch rapala near a rocky shore and picked up a nice 2lber. I tried it again and got a 3lber....in a matter of 30 min I landed two over 4lbs several 3lbers...and lost two giants all in the same spot with a perch rapala...that spot never produced the rest of the week.
