Thanks guys! Zwiggles, for browns I try to row 1.5-2 mph, much slower if going to lakers. Row-trolling for browns all day means the next day I most likely will not be trolling due to being sore lol. I have found a lot of fish bite on the pause, especially when using flutter spoons, and it's also important to pump your rods often, turn, change speeds, anything that gives your lure an erratic action.
Good luck!
Gino

Nice. I had a conversation with my uncle regarding my grandfather, and how he used to troll out of a row boat for brook trout and LLS. He basically backed up everything you said (minus the speed- gps wasn’t big back then), and in particular mentioned making it be as erratic as possible. He said they often would get doubles when the towing stopped, or right after they started to row again.

Keep up the good work!

Third walleye outing of the year at Ashokan and managed to actually hook one. Went out with a friend and while trolling back to the shore after dark, in about 20 feet of water right on a point, stickbait bouncing the bottom trolling real slow, the rod went off but the problem was my friend has these trolling wieghts attached that I had never used before so unfortunately I struggled way too much to get the weight off and by the time he got it off the fish was gone. While reeling it in, it surfaced and was a good sized fish. Fought like a log, nothing like a trout or bass, and he is a veteran walleye angler and we're both 95% sure it was a walleye. Other than that, a bunch of white perch, a small rock bass & yellow bullhead, a throwback smallmouth and two nice keeper smallies.

Way to get out.  Had a big black bear swim accross a river I was fishing once.  He had no problems at all.  Cool you got to see it.

Trolled Rondout this evening mid-way up the res 7-10 colors with spoons but the fish were not biting for me, only a buoy line which I lost two spoons on lol! Wasn't marking many fish at all, except for a few stragglers 90-110 ft. down as well as a few schools of what I assume were browns 30-70 ft down chasing sawbellies. Hopefully better luck next time. Also for anyone heading up the 55 side, the bridge on 55 below the dam is closed, had to drive around 55A to get to my boat.

Did a little shore fishing below the weir last night, no action & nothing for the other guy either. Water is at or near full capacity in lower basin, although upper basin seems to be down a bit (can see islands in the middle).

I used Stingers jigging on Upper Saranac Lake last month.  I yarned on that thing until my arms nearly came out of their sockets, but to no avail.  Better luck to you and your girlfriend, Gino!
