Walleye TV shoot, Adolphus Reach, ON.

Posted on September 6th, 2012

[nggallery id=787]Show time!! Our headquarters again for the Walleye TV shoot was the Belleville, ON Comfort Inn.   We woke up to clear skies and not wind…..yes!!

Our strategy again was to cast Rapala crankbaits to the weed edges to intercept cruising, feeding fish. As the morning developed it started to get really hot, and no wind.  We located the two weedbeds that held walleye the day before and even though the conditions were totally different that was our first two spots to hit. 

My guests for this TV show were Stanley Wachon & Gary Regis, who are members of the Defasco Anglers Club from Hamilton, ON, and avid fishermen.  They had a won a days fishing with me and to appear in one of the TV shows.

All of us used the Rapala series of rods/reels that included the Walleye Tournament Series, Shift and Concept Ti rods along with the Rapala Shift, Andros and Volt spinning and baitcasting reels. Our line of choice was Sufix 832, 10 lb. test braid with Sufix 20 lb. test fluorocarbon leaders. The top producing lures were the Rapala Tail Dancer #9 in the “hot-chub” color, the Rapala Dives To 7 Flat and the new Clackin’Rap with a diving lip.

Thanks to the Humminbird sonars and Minn Kota electric rigged 18′ River Hawk, we were able to locate with precision the weedlines and weedbeds and wasted no time in hooking trophy walleye.

Stan started by catching a chunky 22″ walleye and than the size of fish got consistently larger, right up to a whopping 29″ fish that approached 10 lb. and put up an excellent fight that you will be able to see when the new TV shows air in our new series staring this fall.  We all enjoyed a great day on the water, we worked on our tan, and the best part was that we landed some really nice walleye!!
