Smallies and Wallies

Recommended Posts

This is the time of year when you can get smallmouth bass action when targeting them, and target walleyes and do well too - how great is that??  In roughly a month to three weeks the walleyes will slowly drop off in action. But right now you can do well on both smallies and wallies.

The smallmouth bass are hitting soft plastics ( I did have a tub of a largemouth take a buzz bait down - lost him...) We did best on wacky worms and jerk baits.  Tubes not so much, that is unusual.  

Walleye - from 12 to 24 fow - crawlers and leeches.  I have been doing best on the shallow range of this depth, but I know others are getting fish in the deep water.  Reports are good one day and slower the next , but guys are catching white tips.  You can still put together a nice box last Saturday we had ten legals before 1pm. Including two too large to keep - one is pictured here.

Fun times on the Croix.
