Hi Italo, I am a big fan and love watching you on tv. I am going to Lake Sturgeon in the Kawarthas for walleye next weekend. I have never fished Sturgeon and was hoping to get your advice where to look for the walleye. I was thinking around river currents. Also what techniques and plastic lures for jigging would be good. Thanks for your help and look forward to hear from you. Keep up the great work on tv.Regards JarrodPosted on May 13th, 2016
Hi Jarrod, thank you for your kind words. I recommend you fish the south end of Sturgeon Lake in Goose Bay. This area has a large shallow and is full of flooded tree stumps which you can see sticking out of the water. Just before you get into the tree-stumps the water is 6-9′ deep with isolated patches of your aquatic weed-growth. The bottom is silty and gets murky whenever there is a breeze on the lake. The murky water draws the walleye in and they can feed as shallow as 4′ in-between the flooded timber.
Best presentation there is to fish a Jointed #11 Rapala around the tree stumps and also casting a Johnson Beetle Spin in the 1/8 oz. size. Don’t tip the Beetle Spin with anything, just cast it out, let it sink to the bottom and reel it in slowly so that the blades rotate and it’s swimming along the bottom…God bless you.
