In this video, Max is using side imaging to identify pods of walleye positioned on sand flats. After finding these fish, it’s key to spot lock adjacent to them. He is then targeting them with an Acme Hyper Rattle – working the hyper rattle with the current and bringing the bait in front of the fish’s face.
The key is to work this bait at about a 45 degree angle, and allow the current to sweep it right in front of the fish. This is because many times the fish are faced up into the current to feed.
In summary, when fall river fishing, rely on side imaging to locate the pods of fish. Then position upstream from the fish – working the baits down current – in front of their face to feed. By following these simple tips, you’ll be sure to turn over more fish this season.
