I can't believe it's March already and in a couple months the ice will be melting and walleye season will be getting close to opening. Although for me it's a busy time of year with the start of our tourist season, getting all the houseboats ready, it's also nice to have open water fishing to look forward to. I love getting out on the water and doing some fishing. So much, in fact, that a couple friends and I started an online fishing show to give fishing tips for the area.
|Rapala, the staple for trolling shallow.|
Enter the Storm Lures Madflash Thunderstick in "Gizzard Shad" flavor. I purchased mine at Walmart while looking over lower priced lures and decided to pit it against a Rapala. My buddy used a Rapala during our nights out, and I used my Thunderstick. Our first couple episodes details our adventures. You can see our luck with walleye in episode one, and episode two shows more walleye, with a massive northern pike as random catch of the night. By the time we were collecting footage for episode three, most of the walleye had moved to deeper water for the most part, and we were picking up bass coming in for the spawn, so it was time to move to a better target area.
