Shore-fishing for Alberta walleye with the Rapala Shad Rap.

Posted on October 17th, 2013
Gideon Kubassek holds up one of about 12-walleye he and his dad Joe caught while casting crankbaits from shore on an Alberta reservoir.

Joe Kubassek and his son Gideon traveled to Alberta this past weekend and had a chance to fish a reservoir for walleye from shore.  Their lures of choice were crankbaits.  One particular crankbait that produced well was the Rapala Shad Rap.  Fall walleye commonly cruise into shallow water along shorelines, especially at night, and they are on the prowl for larger baitfish trying to put on weight before the water get’s really cold.  That’s the best time to crankbaits from shore, or from a boat, towards shore.

Ontario walleye anglers looking for trophy walleye on crankbaits should be making plans to fish the Rapala Tail Dancer #9 along the weedlines in Picton Bay, ON, and also trolling out from the weeds.  From now to ice-up will be the hottest time for trophy walleye on the Lower Bay of Quinte, ON.

The Rapala series of crankbaits like the Shad Rap and Tail Dancer are lures fall, feeding walleye can't resist!
