As the air cools each day and the leaves begin to change, the bite in the north country begins to heat up. This trip found me out on a back country lake where accessibility is limited.

The morning found us catching good sized walleyes off weed edges with sharp drop offs using the RZ Jig in firetiger pattern. Later in the morning we switched our tactics to trolling the bottom of these drop offs with the Northland Float’n Walleye Crawler Hauler. By mid-day we found ourselves pitching Impulse® Fatty Tubes in green pumpkin for what turned out to exactly what these smallmouth bass were looking for. Sometimes a well planned walleye trip can turn into a phenomenal smallmouth trip.

So as the weather turns and winter nears, get out and enjoy some of the year’s best fishing! Till next time, tight lines!
