    Nice perch, odd how the walleye are all smaller. Have been getting some really nice walleye out if the river lately. There should be a big push of nice walleye coming down here soon.

    Did the same yesterday. Found em schooled up in 12-14 FOW throughout Grosse Pointe but not the monsters you found. Took 15 of them between 7.5-9” with one 11” and one 13” - tossed about 12 back and whiffed on a bunch.

    No Walters, unfortunately! Orange jig heads and emeralds were the ticket for us.

    Those are some true jumbos. Were you drifting and basically dragging the jig and minnow or were you being more active with the rod?

    Nope pretty much doing the same thing you do when you jig the river.

    Nicely done the wife and I were out Sat. on the river trolling harnesses with no luck..
    May need to put those away for the year
    and try jigging. Those are some real jumbo’s..

    Looking for some advice. I’m new to jigging for walleyes on the St Clair River. This past spring I was using your typical round 1oz jig head. Is there and advantage or disadvantage of using other styles of jigs besides round?

    I've noticed only a slight difference when trying the "river jigs" that are narrow for reduced drag. I think you'll notice more difference by using line that does not float like braid or a small diameter mono to minimize it.
