Our good friend Dave Kubassek who fishes Lake Nipping’s West Arm regularly recently was just casting a spinnerbait close to shore targeting pike when he was surprised to catch these two good size walleye in less than 10′ of water. Normally by the end of June walleye are already on the shoals, reefs and deeper-water structure breaks.
This just goes to show you how the late spring and colder water temperatures has affected our fishing in many areas.
[nggallery id=943]If you are planning a walleye trip up to Lake Nipissing, ON and especially the West Arm of Lake Nipissing you may want to take some Rapala Dives To Thug and Rapala Dives To 7 Flat or the new Rapala Scatter Rap series and fish them as if you were bass fishing on shorelines breaks….you may get some pleasant walleye surprise!!
