    Always makes a guy wonder how many follows he gets in a day.

    That first crank had some looks but not many takers.

    Translation: DM wonders how much more often and vigorously he should be pumping his rod.

    When in trouble or in doubt, run in circles, scream and shout.

    the walleyes really have to struggle to keep up with that lure - not

    True freedom is not the ability to do whatever one wants or as one pleases without restraint, rather, true freedom is the ability to what one ought to do.

    Makes me realize the importance of varying the speed. Pump the rod, slow down speed up, whatever. Also, if you haven't had any action, change colors.

    I guess I grew up being told that walleyes are finicky, and fragile. That they hide all the time, and that they rarely "strike". Also, one would think that with a crankbait with three trebles, you couldn't miss. Ha ha, that notion is clearly wrong. In spite of the fact that pretty much every time I even look at a crankbait, I have to pull it out of my hand, those walleyes can nip it over and over, and swim away laughing, holding their bellies.

    I spent a few minutes yesterday watching some smallmouth bass in shallow water. Also, some tiny ones at the dock. Inquisitive little buggers. Very interested in what's going on around them, even though they weren't always "biting". But they charged the lure repeatedly.

    You should have the Skegosaurus pro shop get to work on the stability issues with this camera thing. I got a little sea sick with the wobbles.

    Also, is it odd that that camera records sound too? Interesting to hear a crankbait, and the sounds of reeling.

    when all i did was throw cranks from the time i was 15 until i was 30, we ripped em as fast as we could with reels that had at least 5.2:1 gear ratios. if we weren't ripping them, we weren't catching them. the rule was if you had a walleye follow it, you weren't reeling fast enough. this video gives me a bit of verification.

    I would agree, except in late-late season, when the water is muy frio.
