ottertail walleyes on leadcore?

Recommended Posts

I was wondering if anybody has ever tried to go after the walleyes on ottertail pulling raps or anything else with leadcore out in no-mans land? 30 feet or deeper between the humps. And if so how you did. I haven't yet but I'm getting the itch to try it soon while it is still pretty warm. Thanks

Probably 7-8 years ago I borrowed a friends downrigger and we played with it on a Saturday afternoon. We tried everything from 30-55 ft and with all kinds of plugs. The only excitement we had was when we ran our ball into a 25 ft hump with 55 ft of line out. We graphed a lot of "fish" but who knows. We probably went about it all wrong buy you think we would have had a strike in about 6 hours of fishing. Sadly I broke the downrigger mast off when I pulled into pelican bay access and had to order my buddie a new mast and install it. That just about cured me of my interest in downriggers. About two summers later we were fishing humps in July and a boat about 100 yards away was really cleaning up on the walleyes during the day. After a while they picked up and came over to see how we were doing. We had several 13-15" fish. They had their limit of 15-24" fish. I asked them how they did it and they used 2 ounce bottom bouncers and pulled spinners over a little 35 ft hump that always had fish on it buy never gave any of them up. Something to think about. We tried it a few times buy never with the success those boys had.
