Using crankbaits for summer time fishing works great but you don’t have to put them away and try something different for ice fishing for Walleye. Using the rattling lipless crankbaits for giant walleye fishing is a lot of fun and works great for bringing in the monster walleye. Check out the video for some great tips on landing more fish.
3rd and final day of our Schroon Lake trip fishing with Elias (it was again very slow and again I caught 2 lakers, although this time was surprised to catch the biggest of the day in 6′ of water while catching micro perch, on a small swedish pimple with no bait. Generally Lake Trout prefer deeper water, most that I have caught have been between 50′-80′ deep, but I have heard they do come in shallow like this at times… Now I am a believer.
Drilled many holes and spent many hours trying to find a good bite but in the 3 days we were there we really didn’t put anything solid together, it didn’t matter where on the lake we tried or what depth we fished, it was a slow grind everywhere we tried and there was virtually no pattern to these fish other than we would catch one every few hours.. regardless of depth.
Thanks for Watching!
Rod/Reel I used…
5′ St croix Ultralight rod…
Shimano Saros 2500 reel.
I think it is about time I throw in the towel. This was my last ice fishing trip of the season and maybe forever. In this episode I hop aboard the struggle bus and attempt to catch some bass through less than safe ice. Despite having the worst luck ever, I still had some fun fishing on my birthday. Huge shoutout to Schuyler for taking me out to his honey hole! Hope you all enjoy!
