Walleye in the Welland River, Welland, ON.

Posted on July 5th, 2011

[nggallery id=554]After fishing Lake Erie, NY for trophy Sheepshead, Tony Brecknock and I decided to scout the Welland River, ON to try and locate some panfish, pike and walleye for me to do a Ocean Kayak TV show today.  We got on the river around 3pm, cruised slowly keeping a close eye on our 1100 Series Humminbird sonar for structure areas where the water went from 5-12′ quickly.  In no-time we were cranking structure areas using Rapala Shift Rods & Reels, Sufix 832, 10 lb. test line and Rapala Dives-To 7 Flat series crankbaits, and of course, our Lucky Strike Live Release Basket Net.  We immediately started hooking rock bass on our first spot and moved further down the river.  By 4:30, we found walleye holding on the back-side of a nice 4-8′ drop-off.  Tony had two walleye on quickly and I continued to catch panfish.  Both his fish were caught fishing right on the bottom using  a TriggerX 4″ tube.

Hopefully we’ll have some more pictures from today’s shoot.  It’s 7am….got to get to work!
