After two days of strong wind, we found some walleye on rocks and sand in really shallow water on Green Bay over the weekend. The water was dirty and warmer than normal which kept the fish up shallow chasing bait in 3-10 feet of water. Didnt catch anything over 25 but had a blast catching them in skinny water. We trolled spinner rigs with nightcrawlers and let out 20-35 feet of line from the Daiwa LG27-LCW trolling reels, with either no weight or a small split shot above the swivel. This fish was exceptionally clean and golden and took a great picture!!#walleye #walleyes #walleyefishing #stcroixrods #bestrodsonearth #daiwareels #minnkota #sunlineamerica #AFTCO

Go Boldly

Thanks to our St. Croix Elite and Extreme Rods today, we managed a few good Smallmouth that were acting a little finicky. #LES68MXF #XS68MXF #bestrodsonearth #stcroixrods

Green Island on Green Bay. Caught this 27-1/2 inch walleye trolling in 30-32 feet of water in fairly rough seas across the point of the island. In waves over 2-3 feet, I like to use a snap weight ahead of an 800 series Reef Runner to keep the line down in the water. We let out 30 feet of line, clip on a 2 ounce snap weight, and let out another 30 feet of line before attaching the planer board. We trolled at 2 mph over the deeper rock/sand transition of the island. Northern Green Bay walleye are dark, gold, stout, and mean!#walleye #walleyefishing #stcroixrods #bestrodsonearth #daiwa #minnkota #sunlineamerica

However the rising Mississippi River fishes in the next weeks, its all St Croix. Best Actions made. #BestRodsOnEarth

Door County Wisconsin. Trolling rock reefs and rock points in 18-40 of water. We used Daiwa SG27LCW Line-counter reels to know the exact amount of line to let out for each presentation. After letting out 40-80 feet of line, we pulled 800 Series Reef Runners at 2.0 mph. When the fish wanted a slower presentation, we let out 20-60 feet of line and trolled with nightcrawler harnesses behind 1-oz. in-line weights at 1-1.2 mph to get our baits down 10-30 feet deep in the water column. #stcroixrods #bestrodsonearth #walleye #walleyefishing

Its always great when your guide clients show up with St.Croix Rods and Diawa reels. Great trip with the father and son team On lake Geneva! Dave ,Zach and I boated 28 and had another 10 get off. Awesome morning! #StCroixRod #Mercury pro team # Daiwa #WeFishASA podcast #MercuryProTeam

Spent a very special day on the pond with Bernard & son Blake Kenemer of Dalton Ga. Blake & Dad boated 18 Fish today mostly from 10AM till 11:30AM. Blake expertly handled these mean Spotted Bass using our go-to drop shot rod, the Avid-X 7ft Medium LT action. This rod is perfect for 6lb line applications! Good luck on the water. LB.

One of my school students Peyton Heins Doing real well, here are some of her fish from this summer. #MercuryProTeam

Capt Andy of Reel Bass Adventures Guide Service with a nice Potomac River bass caught with a St Croix PS66MF

Fished our all night club tournament Saturday at Pueblo reservoir. Finished first with 13.46, which is a huge bag for this lake in the summer. Had big bass with a 4.47 smallie, my new PB!! Definitely needed the power of the avid x to get the bigger fish in the boat!! The two big fish came on a swim jig and the 4.47 surged so hard at the boat it pinned my rod to the gunnel. Don't think any other rod would have handled that!! #stcrioxrods #bestrodsonearth

When the dog days of summer slows the walleye fishing, catch what you can. #stcroixrods #daiwausa

Glad I had my 7 4 heavy St Croix Legend Extreme for this one!
