Kayak Smallmouth Bass & Walleye.

Posted on Thursday, September 23, 2021

Our friend Scott Clark invested in a “power” fishing kayak and is putting it to work. He recently fished the Grand River and was impressed with it’s performance, comfort and how it handled overall.

Scott’s kayak is rigged and ready for any fishing conditions.

He was fishing deeper stretches of the river pulling worm harness weighted with a bottom-walking sinker near the bottom and caught both Bass and Walleye. Standard paddle-kayaks are fine for overall recreation and fishing but having a kayak that either has a “peddle-drive” or can be equipped with an electric drive and even more efficient especially in windy conditions. Electronics like the Raymarine Elemenet7 are ideal to know exactly how deep you are fishing and for showing fish, baitfish and important structure.

Cranking Bass & Perch.

Posted on Wednesday, September 22, 2021

While shooting a cranking Largemouth Bass TV show using crankbaits and twitch-baits off shoreline and large weed flats we came across schools of feeding perch in 1-8′ of water.

Luckily I had some ultralight crankbaits and small soft-plastics/ 1/8oz jigheads and quickly rigged my lightest spinning rod fishing both one after another.

The perch were so shallow in clear water and I was able to see them follow in small schools and strike by baits.

Some of the perch ranged in size from 8-11″ long which are ideal for filleting and enjoying.

Perch like Walleye can really move around in the summer months and can feed as deep as 50′ or as shallow as 1-8′ water. Winds, water temperature and available food are the key items that determine where they will be feeding. In our case we could have caught as many as we wanted but we only kept 19 which fed 7-people and we had leftovers.

Raymarine tracking shorelines for baitfish & gamefish.

Posted on Tuesday, September 21, 2021

I like to follow predator fish as they move from off-shore feeding in mid-summer to moving in along steep-dropping shorelines in late summer to intercept baitfish schools that feed just off the weeds.

Raymarine
Walleye feeding tight to steep-dropping shorelines can be close to the bottom. That’s when using weighted in-line spinners and jigs work well to catch them.

These baitfish can be feeding closer to the bottom, or just below the surface. The only way you can locate their depth is with a dependable fish finder.

Raymarine
When Walleye are suspended on steep-dropping shorelines trolling is one of the best ways to intercept them.

Knowing the depth the baitfish are feeding is critical to knowing which lure to use and making the right presentation for predator fish like Bass and Walleye.

Raymarine
Suspended Largemouth Bass off steep-dropping shoreline breaks are usually aggressive feeders.
