Walleye season opens Saturday, May 21st - just a couple days away! It was a late ice-out here in NW Ontario, which means one thing... BIG walleye and lots of them in the current areas of east Lac Seul.
Here's a teaser from last year.
I've got my box of Lindy X-Change Jigs ready to go. Different sizes, different colours, all without having to re-tie. Very cool!
Another product I'm really excited about this year is the Frabill FXE Stormsuit. I've been wearing it since the ice went off and I can honestly say this is the best engineered and best performing all weather gear I've ever had on. They literally thought of everything in the design of this fishing outerwear system. Move over Cabelas and Bass Pro, there's a new standard in performance fishing outerwear. Thank you FRABILL for making such an awesome product!!
One more bit of housekeeping... I've got an amazing opportunity for a group of guys, or gals, who can pull together a last minute trip. I had a cancellation for June 1-5 and I would hate to see this slot go unused. This is a PRIME slot for BIG walleye and pike on Lac Seul. Plus, lake trout on Big Vermilion or Minitaki. I know this slot won't stay open long so get in touch with me asap for a truly remarkable fishing trip. There is a reason it's hard to book a trip in June.... it's awesome fishing!!!
