Summer Wally Help!

Recommended Posts

So I'll be fishing this weekend on Rice lake near Paynesville, MN. Darker/low vis water clarity. I've not had any luck getting into the walleyes on this lake before (it's a friends cabin so I've only fished it a couple times), but I put in some scouting last trip and have found a couple of locations to target now on the lake. I'm just wondering what baits I should be giving a try first for the early morning late night bites at this point in ths summer now. My first attempt was going to be draggin around some lindy rigs with a leech (maybe even gulp alive to start), and then hitting some weed lines (~8-12 ft) with some rapalas. Any suggestions would be welcome, I know where I can get into the northerns and panfish but would love to boat a walleye or two if possible.

I was just a couple miles from there today, fished similar dark water conditions. This time of year crankbaits worked on the deep weedlines or over the main lake structure will produce some fish. Trolling lindy rigs with leeches or crawlers will get you some walleyes too but you will have to put up with the sunfish pecking at your bait.

Pm me if you would like some gps cords to some mid summer spots, I fish the lake a few times a year wink
