Hi all,

I have a canoe trip planned to lady evelyn in a couple weeks and was looking for some insight into the techniques used for the walleye up there. Normally when I target walleye, in the kawarthas, I look for weed bed edges in relatively shallow areas and jig and troll worm harnesses through them. However, I've been told there aren't many weed beds up there and to troll boby baits along rocky shoals.

If anybody has any insight, it would be greatly appreciated.

Big ones! If you find weeds there will very likely be fish around but there's lots of rock/sand transitions and scattered wood that holds fish too. The guys trolling seemed to do better at the prime times which is no real surprise I guess. Bring some extra jig heads, the place is loaded with chunk rock that eats jigs.

Makes sense. We ended up with more pumpkinseed in our bait traps than minnows,.

If you are able to keep worms fresh for the duration of your trip, try trolling worm harnesses (different colors) over rocky shoals.

Try a slip bobber with a worm and 3-4 feet of line at dusk very near shore.

I've had luck with crankbaits in 20 feet of water along the shore-Shad Raps, HotnTots, RatlinRaps and Wally Divers...etc... Blue with gold, Perch color Green and yellows.

Just came back from lady e. All in all a really good trip. Hard not to have a good time up there. I did expect more from the fishing, but I still did ok. I found they were really hard to find a consistent pattern. I would basically catch them everywhere, but not in huge numbers and not very many large ones. 10 ft Rapalas in 12-20 fow shorelines seemed to be the best producer, but again, not entirely consistent. Also got a ton of pike and some decent smallies. Ill go ahead and blame the volatile weather and limited area to cover because I was in a canoe. Lol.

The one in the pic is one of the better ones 23.5".
