Wisconsin's Fox River gives up monster Walleyes

Wisconsin's Fox River gives up monster Walleyes

I received this photo from Pat Kalmerton of Wolf Pack Adventures Guide Service.

It’s a photo of Mike Scharl of Howards Grove WI (L) and Nick Rammer of Sheboygan Falls WI (R).   They were fishing with Pat on the Fox River in De Pere.   Mike's fish measured in at 26.25 inches and Nick's monster measured in at 31.50 inches and well over 12 pounds.

The walleyes were not weighed because they wanted to d a quick release without harming them.

During the day Pat and his clients were vertical jigging with Northland gum ball jigs tipped with a fathead minnow.  Pat used his trolling motor to work the current so they can keep the jigs vertical.

As night starts to throw its blanket over the sun they moved up into the shallows where the river is running wild.  They were just below the dam.   From the jig presentation, they switched to pitching Husky Jerks, Rat L Traps, Thundersticks, and Reef Runners.  The trick, Pat said is to cast up river and reel in fast or cast down river and reel in slowly.

“If you are afraid of losing baits and are not digging bottom you will not catch as many fish.” Pat said.
