    Default Lake James 10/29

    My intentions were to troll for Walleye. Could not keep the Bass, Crappie and White Perch off my worm rigs and crank baits. Crappie in pic inhaled a Rapala ShadRap #4. As you can see from the couple of pics, the fish are fattening up for winter. I was too busy catching fish and being by myself hard to take pics and grab rods too. The fillets are from one Crappie, nice when it only takes one to make dinner.

    I lost track of how many I caught. I had gone through over 2 dozen Nightcrawlers in few hours. I just kept enough Perch and Crappie for me to have a few meals and gave a neighbor enough for 3-4 meals.

    How deep were you trolling? Did you have deep fish on your fish finder? Walleye will typically be the deepest fish in the strata. If you were deep enough, you likely wouldn't have to deal with bass..

    I had fish from bottom to just below surface on FF. We were bottom bouncing super death hook rigs with crawlers. I had Cranks at varying depths, mostly just off bottom. We were trolling in 15 to 80'. The amount of fish on FF at times was amazing. I have not done well with the Walleye yet at all this year. No complaints, have been catching plenty of other very nice fish.
