Walleye on the Kayak



This is Columbia River below John Day Dam. With nearly all boat ramps and launch sites closed near me I have been trying to get out with the kayak when the wind lets me. This spot is a real pain to get the kayak launched but close to home anyway (20 min.). It takes me 5 or 6 trips up and down a nasty little hill and I am just not very good at traveling light.
I was wanting to catch a few walleye but am not too picky. It was turning out to be kind of a sucky day with only a few bass and pike minnow.
After a few hours I decided to put on a shallower diving Berkley Flicker Shad and troll some new water back to the truck. At 12 to 15 feet of water I started getting walleye. Shallower than usual for me. I picked these up and had a few more hits in just 30 minutes. The biggest is 20 inches. Good eater size. The wind then started coming up so headed back.
