Keep at it and maybe change out some rigs or try more weight or no inline weights if you use them. This time of year out of nine lines I troll by myself, 2 umbrellas no inline weights out 150 to 200 feet and 2 umbrellas with 20oz MOJOs as the weight off a three way swivel with the umbrella behind the swivel with 15ft leader. The heavy umbrella rig I put it out 60 to 70 feet. The planer board rods are all tandem rigs 3oz/6oz but only out 40 to 80 feet.

I will definately be out there trying. Had four rigs out all on top way back.
Don't like to get close to the parking lot out there where the fish are, but I'll get mine.
Thanks for all the good advice.

Everything I've been catching lately has been very deep - 25-35 feet down. Lightest rig was an tandem rig with a total of 12 ounces weight back 100 feet on braided line. Umbrellas are back 75 feet with 20 ounce inline sinker and twin 2oz parachutes. Caught 4 fish monday - 32, 36", 36", 37". With no planer boards, seems that most fish I catch are down deep - presumably the boat drives them deeper as it passes over them. makes sense to me.

Good luck - keep at it!
