Spinnerbait Walleye

June 9, 2018

May 26, 2018

Bass Opener turned into Walleye Opener Part 2.

Threw on the waders and went to a local lake with three rods in tow.  First and second fish of the day turned out not to be bass but to be 12″ walleyes that I caught on a Bettle Spin with a black twister tail.  I’ve read lots about catching walleyes on spinner baits but have not purposefully attempted this technique before.  I can’t say that I was attempting to catch walleyes today, but spinner baits resulted in a total of four walleyes and eight bass.

May 26, 2018 – Part Two

Had a few minutes to burn before getting my son to wherever it was he needed to go so flung a few casts on Mt. Normandale Lake.  Nothing.

May 26, 2018 – Part Three

My son’s hockey workout, that is where we were headed, lasted an hour.  Since Wirth Lake was only  five minutes away, so I headed there to scout it out.  No boat access, so shore fishing and wading only, unless of course you have a canoe or some other small watercraft that you can carry in.  Saw a couple of bass on their spawning beds and a number of bass floating around.  Looks like some decent prospects here.
