Big Baits for Fall Walleye: Jason Mitchell joins Rainy Lake guide Donnie O’Bert to troll big baits for fall walleye on Rainy Lake in northern Minnesota. Running the size 11 and size 13 Northland Tackle Rumble B behind a 2 oz. bottom bouncer to keep the bait closer, Jason and Donnie troll along deep and sometimes, tight contours on a fishery driven by a smelt forage base. Learn tips for how to contour troll for walleye and how to choose the correct lure selection. Fall walleyes definitely seem to key in on the larger profiles as baitfish like smelt grow through the summer and into the fall.
Inspired by experienced Scandinavian trollers for fisherman who want to catch big fish. The unique swimming lip on this crankbait causes water to flow over the shoulders of the bait eliciting a rocking motion that sets off visual flash along with a steady hunting action. Use medium tackle to feel the swimming action of the bait. Available in three sizes to cover a range of depth from 8′-25′ deep. Trolled at steady speeds, the Rumble B swims with a rolling action ideal for deep, slow moving fish; a fast troll provides a quicker action that is irresistible to active fish. Get ready to rumble!

Northland Fishing Tackle® — EST. 1975
In 1975, a young Northwoods fishing guide named John Peterson started pouring jigs and tying tackle for his guiding clients in a small remote cabin in northern Minnesota. The lures were innovative, made with high-quality components, and most importantly were catching fish when no other baits were working!
