Hotspot – Fish’n Mission

Burton Lake – N48° 30.786’ W W84° 57.320’

This week’s Hotspot is a breakline on Burton Lake. The Waypoint on your screen will get you there.

At first glance, this certainly doesn’t look like a Walleye hotspot. But drop a jig down there when the water is in the high 50s and hopefully you’ll have the same success that I had.

You should always try and catch some aggressive fish with fast lures like floating minnow baits, suspending jerkbaits or inline spinners. The key to this tactic in a high percentage area is to stay with it if the fish are biting but, if you don’t get bit within five to ten minutes, go back over the area with a slow-moving bait like a jig.

Remember this is one of 30 gorgeous lakes that White River Air has access to for fishing and hunting! Trust me, there are Walleye up here that have never seen a jig and minnow.
