Well I made it out for a couple hours again last night to pull some spinners and crawlers out on an area lake. I had my son Lucas with me again, as we had picked up a new rod for him on Saturday. The Lightning McQueen rod just wasn’t cutting it anymore.
We fished depths from 20-26 fow and caught a mixed bag of walleyes and northerns. Lucas enjoyed watching a few of the northerns dart out of the water when we got them close to the boat. ( I can still hear him laughing! )
Ended up catching a half dozen walleyes, with the 18-1/2″ in the picture being the largest. We did lose another eye, that looked similar in size right along the boat earlier in the evening.
A gold blade or a gold patterned blade, I was using the Fire Belly from Jolly Roger, worked best. We were trolling anywhere from 1 – 1.3 mph and getting strikes.
