There’s an artificial-only walleye tourney (no live bait!) happenin’ tomorrow on Mille Lacs. Will be a catch/weigh/release format where every walleye caught over 1 lb counts — biggest total poundage at the end of the day wins.
How do you think it’ll be won?
A) Trolling cranks (can only use 1 rod)
C) Pulling spinners with plastics
D) Other (dropshots, pitchin’ plastics, yo-yoing Rat-L-Traps, etc)
Leave a comment here how you think it’ll go down.
Imo, feel like you’d waste too much time getting reset between fish if trolling with only 1 rod…unless they find a super-duper milk run loaded with fish….
My gameplan would involve a heavy dose of option B — can be so dang efficient staying on ’em. That shiny gold “perch” color Rapala Jigging Rap can be downright nasty on Mille Lacs when the sun is shining:
Hardest part for me would be staying relaxed and fishing the bait right. I have a tendency of getting worked up in tourneys/leagues (especially during MLF formats when you can see how others are doing) and start fishing the bait too fast:
