Last evening, I had the chance to get out on the Grand River upstream of the dam in Caledonia with my wife Amanda. We were using Rapala crank baits being the Minnow Rap and the Jointed Shad Rap in perch colour. I landed the two walleye using the Jointed Shad Rap using my Rapala Avantis bait casting outfit.
The Jointed Shad Rap is a great lure with true life â€“ like action. To give it even more swimming action, I use the Rapala knot tied directly to the lure. Using my Humminbird 141c fish finder, we could see clumps of baitfish on the graph. Fishing at the mouth of a small creek, where the baitfish would be hovering around, produced these two nice looking 20 â€œ walleye, weighing approximately 2 lbs.
