Went in to work this morning and had 3 quick meetings and headed out around 1030. Made the long run to lorain in 3-5's and set up shop. The wind was really blowing hard, could not get below 2mph with the waves to my stern, and they were rolling a bit too much to be going any other direction comfortably. Screwed around pulling inline boards, jets, and harnesses for an hour or two which was a royal waste of time, as the boards were just flying off the waves. Then I remembered my friend matt let me borrow two dipsies a while back, and they were still in my boat. I don't own any dipsies yet and have zero experience running them myself. I figured what the heck, as they wouldn't be subjected to the waves on the surface. I do have the precision trolling books, however I didn't know which number dipsies they were, so I just experimented. Persistence paid off , as I finally found the sweet spot, 3 setting 90 back with double willow blade purple harness got my 6 fish in about 45 minutes. It was a bit of work out there today, but it paid off!
