Late Summer is an opportune time to explore new, potentially productive waters in Southeast, Wisconsin and trolling is an effective technique for targeting big walleyes.
The particular lake we chose to fish receives moderate pressure from anglers and recreational water sports enthusiasts throughout the summer months.
BUT as the summer begins to wind down, the lake becomes less pressured and trolling several lines targeting deep water walleyes is a great way to reap rewards and scratch that exploratory itch!
As a fishing guide who has been on the water this season for 195 hours since the opening weekend in May, exploring new water with a willing client is a refreshing way to pass on the enthusiasm and excitement that comes from the sport of fishing!
While these “go for broke” missions aren’t always successful, the following video highlights the fact that these trips can ramp up an anglers fascination for the sport when hunches about a fishery are confirmed!
As a BONUS HOT TIP: I Highly recommend that if you’re in the Southeast, Wisconsin area and you’d like to get confidence in trolling for walleye during the summer, target Lake LaBelle in Oconomowoc to gain confidence in the technique!
