"Sharpshooting Walleyes..."

Post by tmcaul »

I have been watching some of the Uncut Angler videos on YouTube. In "Sharpshooting Walleyes" he fishes for walleyes by motoring along very slowly during the daytime until he marks large fish. Then he immediately backs up and jigs as close as he can to where he thinks he marked the fish. In the episode, he is fishing during the summer in 25-35 FoW.

Has anyone tried this or something similar on Champlain?

Here's a link to the video.

If you aren't watching Aaron from Uncut Angling, you are missing out on some impressive knowledge of a young fisherman. As well as the many other youtube angling channels(In-depth Outdoors and Tom Boley come to mind).

I have attempted this only once with no success but know that it will certainly work on Champlain if you put the time in. I mainly troll but will be putting this technique to work this summer, as I have a bunch of jigging raps that need to get wet. Having the tiller certainly makes this technique easier, as he can get his jig directly under the transducer from the back of the boat.
