[nggallery id=738]After filming in northern Ontario for the last couple of weeks I was really curious if the walleye had moved onto structure areas on the Welland River, ON. I went out for a couple of hours this afternoon with my pup Mulligan and cast the Rapala DT7F crankbait to structure breaks in 10-12′ of water. My first fish turned out to be a Crappie, than in a matter of minute, I was pleasantly surprised when I hooked my first walleye, it measured out around 25″.
I used the Rapala Concept Ti rod with the Rapala Shift spinning reel and Sufix 10 lb. test 832 braid. The outfit is fantastic for casting crankbaits. I had a tough time taking photos on my own, but I think you will get the gist of my outing.
I hope to do a TV show on crankin’ walleye over shallow structure and in turbid waters next week.
