In spite of the forecast for a very stiff breeze I got my friend Dennis Beich to make the trip to Banks Lake last Friday. We put the boat in at the Million Dollar Mile campground and started trolling as soon as I had 12 to 14 feet of water under us. We were using bottom walkers with spinners and nightcrawlers and perch were pouncing in them. We moved to deeper water to avoid them and avoided the walleye as well. We pounded our way up to Barker Flats looking to flatter water. We found that but no walleye. The water was flat near Steamboat Rock, too, and we got our baits picked a couple of times and actually put two small fish in the live well. I finally decided to run back down to the area just below Rosebush and put out some crank baits. Finally, we were getting some fish. We put six walleye in the live well in the last hour. The fish ranged in size from 14 inches to over 20 inches long. My original plan, if you read my report last Wednesday was to pull crank baits too begin with. I would have been better off doing just that.
