Trolling on Lake LaBelle in Oconomowoc, Wisconsin can be a marvelous way to fish for walleyes with kids!
Covering water at pace and a variety of depths simultaneously can be a great way to start a trip. If majority of your shallower presentations are getting a majority of the action, it may be a great option to begin casting to the flats. If the fish on the deeper side of the boat are the most active you can switch to live bait rigging for them and really directing these respective areas.
In the process of trolling, kids may catch a variety of other game fish as well. Smallmouth and Largemouth Bass, Northern Pike, Musky, and even White and Yellow bass will be more than willing to attack a crank bait or a crawler harness on LaBelle.
