Detroit River Walleye & Bass action, Michigan, ON.

Posted on May 29th, 2014

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.

This walleye nailed a worm harness so hard, Pat initially thought he hooked the bottom! Pat ties all is own harnesses with the right number of beds and color blades.

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.
