I would like to recap my rookie season fishing FLW Costa Northern Division. I am ranked 125 out of 266. Thanks to all of the podcast sponsors that allowed me to promote for them!! St. Croix-Calcutta- Diawa-Costa-Stingray-Fishhead! Thanks to Mercury and FLW! What a great group of anglers FLW has put together. Both my co-anglers were respectful and good people. I look forward to next season!! #StCroixRod #Daiwa #MercuryProTeam #MercuryProTeam

Green Island on Green Bay. Caught this 27-1/2 inch walleye trolling in 30-32 feet of water in fairly rough seas across the point of the island. In waves over 2-3 feet, I like to use a snap weight ahead of an 800 series Reef Runner to keep the line down in the water. We let out 30 feet of line, clip on a 2 ounce snap weight, and let out another 30 feet of line before attaching the planer board. We trolled at 2 mph over the deeper rock/sand transition of the island. Northern Green Bay walleye are dark, gold, stout, and mean!#walleye #walleyefishing #stcroixrods #bestrodsonearth #daiwa #minnkota #sunlineamerica

I had a great guide trip on lake Geneva! My clients used AvidX Rods! #StCroixRods #Daiwa #Mercury #MercuryProTeam

I thought this makes a statement. This is one of the areas we park the boats before the Mutiny Chain O Lakes tournament in northern Illinois. #StCroix #Daiwa #Mercury. #MercuryProTeam

Day two of the Costa Northern Division FLW canceled due to small craft advisory. Hopefully we get to fish tomorrow. # St.Croix Rods. #Daiwa. #Mercury #MercuryProTeam

Follow up to the video posted about the new Legend Glass Spinning rod for casting smaller and lighter crankbaits for walleye. Model LGS72MM is 72 long with the perfect power and action to throw baits like those pictured here: Flicker Shads, Salmo Hornets, Wally Divers, Shad Raps, Scatter Raps, etc.....I use a Daiwa Ballistic 2500 spinning reel spooled with 8 lb. Sunline SX-1 braid in green color, tied to a VMC size 1 crankbait snap. #stcroixrods #bestrodsonearth #daiwa #sunlinefishing

Had a great day with river legend John Smith on the Illinois River fishing for saugers and walleyes in the JJs Pub Annual Tournament. Finished 8th out of 26 boats with four fish, one fish shy of a limit. Vertical jigged 3/8 ounce DocsCustomJigs and ringworms in 16-25 of water, fish were tight to the bottom. Used St. Croix Rods Legend Elite 63 spinning rods (ES63MXF) with a Daiwa Ballistic 2500 spooled with Sunline SX-1 hi-vis yellow braid. Congrats to Doc Hall and his team in the win! A chilly 8 degrees this morning but turned out to be a nice sunny day, great first day of the season!!Twitter: : John Balla walleyeFacebook: John Balla Walleye FishingInstagram: follow: @stcroixrods@rangerboatsfans@brpevinrude@DaiwaUSA #instagramfishing #stcroixrods #rangerboats #evinrude #daiwa #sunline #fishing #walleye #walleyes #walleyefishing #sauger #fishingrods #fishingboats #flyfishing #bassfishing #fishinglife #kayakfishing #gonefishing #fishingrod #fishingtrip #bestrodsonearth
