I had the pleasure of fishing again with Troy Armstrong, John Quast and Paul Scott on the Upper Bay of Quite for trophy walleye. We all caught our share of trophy walleye just casting the Rapala Tail Dancer crankbait along the deep-water side of weedlines.
Our strategy was to find deeper water weedlines in 12′ and try and crank our Rapala Tail Dancers as close to the weeds as possible. With windy conditions this was made a lot easier fishing from the G3 rigged with a Minn Kota Terrova 80 lb. trust electric and Humminbird 1100 series sonars.
I was able to spot the weedlines with the Humminbird, and stay near them by either using my Minn Kota foot-control or the remote which I keep on the lanyard around my neck. The remote helps me control the electric from anywhere in the boat, even when I have to run to the back to net a fish for someone!
We all used the Rapala Shift spinning & baitcasting outfits loaded with Sufix 832 braided line with Sufix Fluorocarbon leaders. Not only did we all catch nice walleye, the boys also took home fresh fillets to enjoy a family fish fry!
