Many walleye anglers are converging on the Detroit River to take advantage of the excellent spring run of fish. Most fish during the day, but our friend Romeo Mastroianni just dosen’t stop and keeps fishing even at night.
On a recent outing they started fishing just before dark where his girlfriend landed one of the first walleye, but after it got dark, the fishing just got better.
Romeo relies on his Raymarine Dragonfly fishfinder to spot the walleye in 18-40′ of water, day or night!
Heavy jigs are commonly used on the Detroit River due to the depth and strong current. One of the top producing combinations is a 5/8 oz. jighead with a 4 1/2″ Fin-S-Fish plastic minnow jigged right along the bottom.
