Yesterday my wife Barbara, our pup Mulligan and I had a chance to fish again with our good friends Pat Pagano and Nino Palazzolo for walleye in the Detroit River, ON. We started fishing around 9:30am and only fished until 12noon. The action was slower than the day before but we still managed to land about 8-walleye, many white bass and a few sheepshead.
All of our walleye were caught jigging a 5/8 oz. jighead tipped with a TriggerX Minnow grub on the Rapala Walleye Series spinning rod, Rapala Seeker spinning reel and Sufix 832 braided line with Sufix Fluorocarbon leader.
Most of the walleye we landed were right on the bottom in water ranging form 35-40′ deep. Because of the strong Detroit River current we used the Minn Kota electric to keep our lines as vertical as possible.
Today we will be attending the 12th Annual ICHA Handicapable Fishing Derby…stay tuned tomorrow to see some of the exciting images.
