Saturday I had the pleasure of taking out Carrie and her kids Delaney and Derek. It was a special trip for Derek as it was his birthday.
Unfortunately for the kids it was a slow day for us. We marked a lot of fish but had trouble getting them to go. We did manage a few keepers and a bunch of shorts. Not getting more keepers definitely bothered me more than the kids. They had a blast being on the boat and reeling in fish even if they weren’t big enough to keep.
Sunday it was like someone flipped a switch and I was glad because it was tournament day. We went back to the same place I had marked the fish the day before. This time they bit and bit very well.
Trolling crankbaits was the ticket Sunday. I was fortunate to have a great tournament partner, Craig Francis. He is a trolling machine.
We weighed in 13.22 pounds which was enough for the win. This was Craig’s first win and I was very happy to be part of it.
If you want to get out on Oneida Lake walleye fishing give me a call. Dates are starting to fill up so don’t wait.
