After a a day of despair at Rufus, we decided to try Banks on the way home for walleye. I guess the jinx followed us there. One small perch & that was it. We talked to one other boat & they said the same thing. However, the day before they knocked them dead on nice trout. So, we switched over to no avail! I guess some trips you knock them dead & others you can forget. We seemed to mark a lot of fish but I guess they had lockjaw.
A word of advice: the state has pulled the docks out of Northrup Point & locked the restroom. Of course, they still want $7 to launch. Head to Osborne Bay. The dock was still in place when we went there.

Your experience reminds me of the saying "some days you are the windshield and some days you are the bug".

How deep were you fishing at Potholes and were you marking fish. What area of the lake? Bottom bouncers used?

We were fishing at Jones Bay for the most part but then tried deeper water. We were using bottom bouncers & nightcrawlers. We decided to switch over & try for trout. We figured we'd troll back to the launch & call it a day. Of course then we were marking a ton of fish in 50' or so of water at the 25' to 35' range. But we figured they were probably perch & we had had enough fun switching lures.

Jones bay? Isn't that on Banks Lake? The title says Potholes Reservoir and the comment says you fished Banks back from Rufus. Given the time of year, and assuming you were fishing Banks, not Potholes, you might be seeing schools of whitefish.

I probably wished we were at the Potholes!
