Fireside walleyes on Dauphin! (super shallow)

by Brett McComas

There’s something special about listening to the crackle of a wood stove while catching chunky walleyes — out of 5′ [!] — during the daytime. Something I’ll probably never experience back home in MN, but was a reality while fishing outta Riverside Lodge on Dauphin Lake, Manitoba.

Did our best to video it all (in the -20 temps!) to help share the experience with you fish-heads. If you’ve got about 10 minutes to burn, I promise to get a chuckle — or four — out of you:

Best baits for us were: 1/8-oz Northland UV Buck-Shot Spoon (purple tiger) and Glo-Shot Spoons for jigging, and Eye-Droppers for the deadsticks.

Gonna try to start doing more “fishing vlogs” like this going forward. Let us know if you love or hate ’em! If you missed the first vid from our Manitoba trip — where we stuck big greenbacks on Winnipeg — you can check it here.
