I troll deep, i troll shallow, slow and fast and yet i don't get a bite. We've had warm days and cool days, rain and shine but no bites. The annual fishing derby is next weekend and i would like to get something to enter but i'm not too encouraged by the results thus far. Any ideas as to what i should do or try?

If you can sue McDonalds for getting you fat then why can't you sue the alcohol companies for all the ugly people you ended up sleeping with?

dig up and try to ahve an answer or two by the end of the day. sounds like
you've tried everything except the kitchen sink, but maybe a fresh
perspective might help.

Im going for Rainbow Trout and Kokanee. I guide Rainbow fishing every year and never have this kind of trouble.

Gary if you are sure of your technique, there is a sure problem.  You are in the wrong place.  If the fish are not under the boat you can't catch them even with a quarter stick of Dynatite.  Try some place in the lake you haven't fished.  Are you marking fish with your depth finder???

gary -

according to most of what i can find at the monet, you're doinge verything
right. a couple of suggestions might be to try sIDE PLANING with the trolling
and also rigging another lure a distance above the lower one.

one other suggestion is to try jigging with a stout pyramid jig and a plastic
worm.

that's what i have so far. i know nothing about trolling, so these may not be
the best suggestions. sometimes chanigng just a small thing pays off big.

locate fish on fishfinder. try adjusting speed up and down and run a zig-zag
pattern when trolling. i like the vibrex lure for kokes. a wedding ring spinner
tipped with a "garden hackle" is good. If the school is stationary. anchor
your boat with two anchors so you don't drift around and use a #10 egg
hook tipped with fly babies and just a split shot to get down. chum if its
leagal. my mix is is 2 gallon of mill run, a quart of feeder eggs, a hand full
of rock salt and enough water to make it like thick oatmeal. spoon liberally
into water around boat.

Yellow Panther Martins, with silver leaf, have been the best for us recently. Small to medium, doesn't seem to make a lot of difference.

(for Trout)

small little blue gill or small perch works great for big channel cats and northern and muskies
