Since being introduced at ICAST last month, the new Lindy Spinners and Crawler Harnesses have proven to be a weapon that every walleye angler should have in his arsenal.
On Sunday, July 25th the Lindy Spinner made its tournament debut at the Minnesota Tournament Trail stop on Lake Winnibigoshish where Lindy Pro Staffers Mike Christensen and Eric Nesius posted a fourth place finish. “With blade and bead combinations that match both the primary and secondary color hues of most baitfish, these spinner rigs will catch walleyes anywhere they swim” said Christensen. A full time Fishing Guide, Christensen, with his wife Margie, owns Hunter Winfield’s Resort (www.hunterwinfields.com) on the south shore of Mille Lacs Lake.
Less than a week later, on Saturday, July 30th, Jason Feldner added to the Lindy Spinners accolades with a victory at the FLW Walleye Tour stop on Devils Lake in north central North Dakota. Feldner, who owns Perch Eyes Guide Service and Lodging (www.percheyes.com) on the west shores of Devils Lake employed the new Lindy Crawler Harnesses in Fathead, Perch and Bluegill colors.
Alternating colors as cloud cover came and went overhead, he topped the field by slightly over two pounds. “The hooks and the line (14 lb. fluorocarbon) held up to not only the walleyes, but also the pike that you have to sort through on Devils lake. Their durability was key because I was not wasting time retying, it was as simple as unhook a fish and get back in the water” said Feldner after claiming his third major title on his home water.
The Lindy Spinners and Crawler Harnesses will be available at major retailers as well as local tackle shops in the coming months. For more information, visit www.lindyfishingtackle.com.
