Favorite Deep Hardbait: Rapala Shad Rap
Size: 3 ½ in.
Weight: 9/16 oz.
Details: "White is my favorite color, but it's tough to find a white Shad Rap in the States, so the shad pattern is my number two. Shad Raps run true right out of the box, whereas other brands need tuning in the nose to get the right action. In the summer, Lake Winnipeg has an algae bloom. So I let the swimmers stir up the algae, which gets the bait moving and the walleye move in to feed. I'll troll the outside of the bathing beaches. As soon as the swimmers leave, the bite stops."
