Many of the lakes in the Midwest have augmented the amount of structure in their lakes with the addition of fish cribs. These man made structures hold a variety of fish species all season long and one overlooked species is the walleye. SJTV host's Tyler and Sara Trampe along with Kraemer Custom Rod's, Erik Kraemer, breakdown the do's and don't's when locating and catching walleyes in cribs.
Fall period crappie fishing can be some of the best fishing of the year - lots of fish congregated in small areas. When these fish are stacked in wintering holes and the angling pressure is high it is critical to give the fish something the have not seen.
The secret is out! One of the most important aspects of shallow water crappie fishing is staying in the strike zone for a prolonged period. This is accomplished with a slow falling presentation and this new soft plastic rig is the deadliest for when crappies are in skinny water!
Understanding your electronics and knowing what to look for when locating walleyes on gravel humps is what this episode of SJTV is all about. Windy conditions make it prime time in clear water lakes for walleyes to slide up on top of main lake structure.
Lake of the Woods offers amazing fishing opportunities all year for walleyes but some of the best fishing is early in the season. Tamarack Island Wilderness Lodge is located in some of the best fishing LOTW has to offer. Finding rock flats adjacent to deep wintering holes are key to putting walleyes in the boat!
