Me and my father and a older fellow went to Vandemere this past week-end. We brought home 5 nice trout. Three of them were about 17 in. 1 was 15 and quarter, and another one was 14 and a quarter! It is time to bring out the trolling rods!
Yes, trolling for trout with a CHRISTMAS TREE grub, is the way to go in the fall at Vandemere Creek.
Most of the time when I am casting for trout or flounder I like to through a Berkley Gulp. I have also found that a white fin-s works good to with a lot of action (twitching the rod) in the summer time.
I never trolled at all till I got the yak, when I started moving at trolling speed i figured that I just as well drag a bait behind me. A slow troll in the winter time works better than casting for stripers in the lakes around here. with a long line the baits work deeper and stay in the strike zone longer than you can get casting.
I watched guys pulling corks a couple of winters back when I was fishing Bay River with Dennis, with a little rigging I think it would work out great from a yak.
