I have been out about 5 times now and have been skunked out of conny every time PLEASE HELP
I'd agree you are deep on just about everything 90-110 on the 3oz and you probably only need to be 80-110 on the tt50
Keep your head up we have done just about anything wrong you can think of. The first year people were pulling fish all around us all day and we wouldn't catch anything because of depth usually. If I can't figure it out for a day I always start high in the water column and if you have the same setup on multiple poles, as most do, stagger the depth on each pole by what you think is about 5 feet and just start gradually dropping them deeper until you hit fish. Once you get a few on the same depth bring more poles there and start hammering them! Be careful doing that if you are running boards though that can get a little messy if you aren't careful!Thanks for all help will have to just keep trying I was catching fish at Geneva ,just cant seem to get them to go at conny will try all things listed above
I fished for many years with out line counters....they make life much simpler but it can be done. If your running level winds (like pen 320's) it helps. But you need to have the same amount of line on comparable reels. And you need to know how much line comes off with each rap of the level wind. I would measure mine in the driveway. So for example, I knew that 17 raps on my 320's let out 170' of line. I kept a little chart on my boat for each rod and now much line came out. Fishing on Erie is more about being consistent than anything.Thanks for all the detailed instructions Beer Batter and others. I also want to try trolling for those eyes near Conneaut. I also struck out last year at Conny with dipseys. I don't know it I had enough line out (need line counters) Everyone had some great advice with their experiences. You guys are the best to share info. hank you.
