I went fishing solo on Wednesday. My goal was to improve my crank bait trolling technique on Banks Lake. I spent the morning on Banks with no luck. I even tried pulling spinners and crawlers without a bite. There were very few boats on the lake and no one was having much luck. When the clock struck noon, I left for nearby Rufus Woods. I did a little better at Rufus. I got 4 walleyes between 130 PM and 7 PM. They measured 16, 16, 18, and 19 inches. Much to my surprise, I did not catch any trout at Rufus.
