I fished chatfield by myself tonight. (Now it's actually morning but whatever.) I caught a smallmouth on my new clackin rap. After getting it stuck and barely getting it back, I switched over to one of the Storm 3" wild swim shad that I just picked up. I hooked six walleye and landed two. Got em all on a straight and steady retrieve. This was the first time I tried the storm shad and I love them. I usually use rapalas there and inevitably get them stuck. It sucks when you lose one or more ten dollar lures in a night. The storm shad are like three bucks for three and are easy to get unstuck since the hook is in top. I'm going back soon and want to try working some metal as well. Regardless of what lure I use, I always seem to lose more walleye than I land. Should I try rigging a stinger hook? Is there anything that I can do to help increase my catch ratio? Check out my pic...
