Follow up to casting Rapala Rippin Raps for early Spring Walleye on Green Bay. Here is a quick video of Mike Lewis and the presentation we used to catch fish in 8-15 of water. Cast, let lure hit bottom, semi-quick rip, reel down on tight line and repeat. The fish would attack the lure when it was fluttering and falling. A good rod choice is a 6-1/2 to 7 foot rod, medium power fast action (MF) or medium power extra-fast action (MXF). Target the warmest water relative to the area as well as stained, darker water. We could not see bottom in 10 which was key to finding fish. #stcroixrods #bestrodsonearth #daiwausa #sunlineamerica #rapala #walleye #walleyefishing

Great day on Green Bay in Oconto, Wisconsin chasing walleye. Launched at 5:30 AM and caught the sunrise of a sunny Spring day. Looking for warm, stained water in depths 8-15, we were casting #6 Rapala Rippin Raps on spinning tackle. Best colors were silver/blue, chartreuse/black back, and a custom purple/antifreeze green. Used a 610 St. Croix Legend Extreme rod, size 2500 Daiwa Ballistic reel spooled with 12 lb. Sunline SX1 green braid and a 3 section of 14 lb. Sunline Shooter Clear Flourocarbon as a leader.#stcroixrods #bestrodsonearth #daiwausa #sunlineamerica #rapala #walleye #walleyefishing
