DEPTH: 8-16 Feet
PRESENTATION: Bottom Bouncing Jigs, Casting, Drifting and trolling Walleye Hardbaits
BAITS: 5” White Flukes on a jighead, Crystal Minnow Walleye Cranks
This Hotspot is an area on Makokibatan Lake where Pete and Steve had a fantastic day Walleye fishing.
The waypoint on your screen will get you there.
Ironically enough, this Hotspot is adjacent to what’s referred to as “Shore Lunch Island”… sounds about perfect to me! Remember though, there are size limits on this lake so make sure you abide by them.
Our guys primarily jigged with 5” fluke style plastics with white being the best colour.
Every now and then the boys would cast out a Yo Zuri Crystal Minnow Deep diving hardbait to search for roaming fish, and that worked as well.
Pete mentioned that the Walleye were so tight to the bottom, he was having a hard time locating fish on the LIveScope.
Since a bunch of fish were there, it proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that your traditional screen on your fishfinder is still a valuable tool.
A big, lone Walleye locked on the bottom is sometimes best seen on a traditional or Side-Vu screen.
