Barb, our pup Mulligan and I had enjoyed a great morning on the Michigan, USA side of the Detroit River with our good friends Pat Pagano and MikeAtkins. Pat is the Founder & Director of the ICHA Handicapable Fishing Derby that is in it’s 12th year in Windsor, ON.
We started off by targeting trophy walleye fishing rock-piles in open water and structure/current breaks in the main channel of the Detroit River by trolling worm harness and bottom-bouncing sinkers. Each May/June walleye fishing becomes very challenging in the Detroit River since millions of white bass converge on it’s bait-rich waters and it’s hard to get a lure/bait near the bottom without having one or more white bass attack it!
After fishing walleye we fished some of the new Rapala & Storm crankbaits for bass. Barb shows off a nice largemouth that hit the new Storm Arashi crankbait. She was also testing the new Rapala Aeris Rod matched with an Rapala Andros spinning reel loaded with Sufix 832 braid , and Sufix 12 lb. test Fluorocarbon leader.
