Fishing the Midwest - 2018 TV Episode #10 - SAK 'eyes & boards and eyes!
Welcome. To fishing the Midwest where we take you to top fishing, destinations, close to home and show you some great ways to catch fish. Well, let, court is an effective, way to take. A shallow, running, crankbait, down, to deeper water. We're, not with the leadcore odds and it's, a great, way to cover a lot of ground with a different, style of presentation we, were using little, crankbaits that normally wouldn't dive that deep as the fish were 25 to 30 feet of water, fish. On fish, on. Not, coming to surface yet the. Good guy yeah but, it's not doing a lot of head shaking either. Yeah, good, job buddy. Better than like my life let me get that on foot. There we go you. Know Jason this. Crankbait. Rowland great. Way to cover water trigger. Bites from aggressive fish during summer yeah. This is a Dan he's aggressive he's ready to go back we better get him back so and get some more in the boat. Well. Here's the great thing about Scott Cahuilla is, there's. Thousands. Of miles, to fish really when. You look at all the different areas, and the arms and stuff and trolling. Is a great way to cover water locate, fish and it's a deadly technique, out here. Boy, there is a lot of amalong here Jason. Staying, down nice thing. Down really big fish. Oh. Stop. Jason, thank, you. Mix, we are right now is an amazing, fishery the fish, population. Is at record highs North Dakota Game and Fish talk about the. Number of fish in the system the. Forage, and lakes caqui right now with a smelt being out of all-time high it. Healthy. Song. Long. That fish we put them on the board just to see sure 21. And I'm gonna, say 20. We're. Both wrong 19 and a half. Still. Fat. But besides, my heaven yeah one, of the things that's important. Anytime you're trolling. Depth. You. Know we get caught up in the color of the lure size. Of the lure the shape the action and that all those are factors, but, getting that bait down in the running depth of the law is is important, that's why Jason you know I know you do a lot of flatline, trolling, all right I like, to use ledcor in this situation, because that lead. Core, line it's a line with a lead Center and then a coating, actually. Helps me control death because each of the colors, on the, lead core at, about, two miles an hour they take this bait down seven, feet so, we've been talking about three. And a half colors, of lead and that, three and a half colors a lead actually, takes that crankbait, 23, 24 feet I like. To use I've got a fluorocarbon, this is tactical. Pline tactical, 10 pound fluorocarbon, I would. Ahead of the bait so between the lead core and the bait and that fluorocarbon, does two things number, one it gives a little stretch when that fish hits so you don't pull that hook out of his mouth and. The other thing that the fluorocarbon does is it's invisible where, the lead cords bright-colored, so, we can monitor how, much we're letting out but. That fluorocarbon, and then invisibility, is important especially in clear waters not only can Jason catch walleyes but he owns North Country marine and Garrison where they sell several boat brands and they also have a great service and parts to. I. Got. A little one hanging on dude I think I got a little annoyed, you. This. One this. One. Was on that board, oh yeah. So it was running up a little shower, not. Very big but fun. When. We come back we'll have more good walleye action, fishing, the midwest is made possible by Strike. King tie. One on. Vexilar. On the ice. Or. Ice built. For life the, way you live it. Beckman.

And filling, thousands, of live wells one, board pullback, at a time, offshore, tackle. The obvious, choice models. That's why offshore tackle, has outperformed, and, outsold, any other brand in history watch our tackle is your leader, and trolling technology. Any. Headshake yet get a double look got a double I was watching this other rod bones yeah. Fish, on here. How. Do you know. Yeah, we're just wasting in 1617. Inch LP he likes weew always. You. Need a net I. Don't. Think so. The, little guy who. The. Pressures, off, yeah. Today. We, had a nice long milk run that you could go for a couple miles along the shoreline and and, catch in and pull cranks or use, ledcor and, some. Place there's a little bit of debris you need to worry about but we're on 25 feet of water we could have trolled for miles. One. Of the things. That. I think you know people ask me a lot. How. Can I get better at catching walleyes, and one. Of the things that I think is number. One being, able to run multiple techniques, you. Know like pulling, ledcor out here there's a fish. But. Being able to pull. Or. Fish. Multiple, presentations. So. That you. Know if you're one method beat if. That methods, not working. Pizza. Luck you. Know we're. Plus. Like. Here, along. This Edgar's fish scattered, all over. You. Know - here - 100 yards up. What. Better way to better, your odds for success, then. To use a presentation. That covers. Water like this ledcor. Crankbait. Thing and the. Other thing, is. Electronics. You, know we know these fish are here because we can see them you know so. You're not fishing. Blindly. You're. Fishing where you know there's some fish are holding you. Know what's fun is we came out here with a plan but, we had an alternate, plan if this wasn't working we had another plan beat yeah, and we haven't seen Plan B yet we. Might not see plan B you know, areas. He's. Not a monster but. Who. Wasn't a week ago I was catching fish in. The same system at four feet of water now there. Here's another nice and. Was. Barely hooked but he was hooked and you, know Jason you said not that long ago when the fish were shallower, you. Were getting them in four, feet of water using. Some of the same baits. Today. We're. Using the same baits but. These fish are coming out of, 27:30, and, we're. Using leadcore, and the great thing about ledcor is as the name implies, that. Weight and outline, allows. You to run that bait when we fish Lake Sakakawea we, stay at Indian Hills Resort West, a garrison, North Dakota garrison. Is a proactive community. With lots of annual events and as you can see they're, all about fishing too. It's a better fish better, fish it's. Not. I like, snow when I get close. No add chicks yeah but coming in pretty heavy. Staying down isn't it. It's not waterskiing, so. We get them up on the surface here yeah that's not a bad one. Patrolling, in the summit. Great. Way to cover water. He's kind of follow up this is yeah. Yeah, bottom, jaw. I had. One before hey, came, a perfect night I love it. Pretty. Typical, not. The biggest but put. Up a great fight oh another. Fish. You, know Jason one of the things if you take a look at that face, it's. A light-colored, underbelly. And. A lot of times. When. I troll crankbaits. I try. To match the hatch, and. You told me earlier that's kind of your plan to tell us a little bit about that out here when, I go to the. Like. Jigging rod box I look for the blue and silver blue and white always got to have white when they're eating these smelt in here and, then number two is usually a perch hey, there's, a lot of perch here.
Just. A good starting point. There's. A fish there's, a fish without, a good one I don't. Feel too bad I was actually a little bit of lino over talk in there. So. That white, underbelly. You're. Matching that. White color of a boat small right yep yep, you know I mean I'm looking for you, know something even left maybe a tinge of blue or engine green, you know what a match if you look at a smelt they got a little. Lateral. Line above on the back boat of blue and green and it's you know they're futile mostly. White. Another beautiful all. You. Know every time I come to saqqaq, we and every time I fish it I feel like I'm fishing water that maybe nobody's ever fished before and obviously that's not the case but I love the wilderness, setting the beauty of the you, know Big Sky Country out here really the, bluffs, the scenery the wildlife, it's just a great place to be and it's, full of fish right now. Oh yes. I'm. Afraid to say that, see Oh yours looks first I, love. It I'm competitive. I'm. Glad you're not as I am. I'll. Let you have the smallest, really. There. Gentlemen. You. Know Jason. One. Of the things about, this, fish we're on Lake Sakakawea North, Dakota. Middle. Of the summer. Great. Way to cover water trigger. Bites. Just. Catch fish a lot of ways. Mind getting near the surface I'm just milking light a little bit longer. Giving. You all the camera time there, you go. There's. A lot of places, where. That's. Pretty good fish. Yeah. I like the looks of it yeah I bet you do. Sure, glad you're not competitive. But. You know what that is a chunk too so. The. Variables, of crankbait trolling the right bait the. Right color, right. Speed, right. Depth and. If, you're around them, you're. Probably gonna catch. Celebrating. 30 years of service to their customers Indian.

Cab Now. Dave. Cookman, is a fellow fishing, guide in the Alexandria. Minnesota area. So Dave and I both guide primarily, for walleyes in the same area and one of the things that we're running into is Clearwater, zebra, mussels have really, affected, the waters and a lot of lakes that we're fishing. In now and what's happened, is finding. And catching lies during the day has gotten a little bit more difficult, but one of the things that we've been able to do is we've been able to use crank, baits and planer, boards to, spread, the baits get the baits out away from the boat it's a great way to combat, some, of the clear water and that's what we're out doing today. Cleaner, boards don't get a lot of use in Minnesota, because Minnesota is a one line state, however. That, does have an application, in our state and that's what I talked about before it, allows us to get debate out away from the boat, so, now, we're, presenting, bathes in Clearwater, without taking the boat right over top of the bait and that, can really be an advantage. Another. Thing that planer, boards allow, today. Where outlaw the structure, and by that I mean we're not trolling a drop off hitch we're actually out away from the drop off we're out in the basin, the planer board is a great way to spread lines and cover. A wide, trolling, pass as we, go down that Basin. Well, there's a couple of different things that we're doing we're using the offshore, planer boards to, get debates away from the boat we, were also using the, fluorocarbon. Leaders just. Trying to be as stealthy as we can with they're trolling passes. Oh, yeah. That's. A good fishin and it was fair. I just, felt a little head shake. Hopefully. It's. The right species and stuff. We. Started using at fishing the Midwest this year the striking series. Of elite. Walleye, crankbaits. They've got some baits that are really fish catching, machines and the one that we've caught a lot of fish on this year has been the lucky shad and in. Particular. The crystal shad pink, belly well that's, the one that the fish really wanted today you'll notice it's got a pretty subtle, color pattern, that blends in into these clear water environments, another. Bait that does a great job is, a, perch pattern now this is another of the strike Kingston series it's a little bit different, bait this is the Banzai shad we, caught most of our fish on the lucky shed the Banzai shed particularly.
In This perch color pattern has been a really good fish producer, as well. Darn. It dogs on. It, not. A bad Pike though. One, thing about port. We're. Using for walleyes. But. Any fate, any. Species, just, about you can use a planner board so. Today, Dave and I are trolling, using, led corn line some. Folks get a little intimidated by LED cart but you really don't need to let, core as the name implies, is, a line, that has a LED center and that lead center takes the line and the, bait that's trolled behind it to deeper water depth. On, a board, what. Does protects international. When. We come back crankbaits. And planer boards will put more fish in the boat fishing the Midwest is presented, by Northland.

Ogum a lake in northern Minnesota discover. Cab now. Over. The last 25 years offshore tackle, has dominated, the freshwater trolling.

The obvious, choice models. That's, why offshore, tackle, has outperformed, and, outsold, any other brand in history, watch our tackle is your leader, and trolling technology. You. Know guys I hate to admit it but before every tournament. And. I really, hate to admit this before. The Bassmaster, Classic I, really. Have. And. If you do what I did and tie one on some Strike King maybe, you'll get what I got a classic, hangover. I. Don't. Think it's a monster. But. I believe it's wrong. Nice. Nope. It's. A wall I ain't landing that. You. Know like, that one. Of the things Dave, and, we talked about it before is. When. All these clear water from these zebra mussels, I. Think. Two things are important. Right. Colored baits now. We're using that. That. Crystal shad with that pink. Belly, that's. Just a great little, clear. Water bait and. Then. Again the planer board, to. Get the bait out away from the vote, another. Thing that we're using today in addition, to lead Corps is a planer board a planer, board is shaped, as it.
Moves Through the water the, shape of the board takes, the board and your bait out away from the boat this is another device that sometimes, people get intimidated by but you really don't need to all, you really need to do with the planer board is you'll hook your line in here in this pinch clip pinch. Back into, the second clip leave, a little bit of slack here let. It out and the board does the rest and the great thing about the offshore boards. With the tattle flag conversion, kit is, when, you get a fish that, flag, goes down and, that tattle, flag is also important, because if you hang up a weed or maybe you hook a small perch the, flag lets, you know as well. Oh. For. Walleyes. Wet, core. You shed does it again we.
