When the bite gets tough on Green Bay in the spring, Bret Alexander of Alexander’s Guide Service will switch from the popular hair jig to a rippin’ rap. When fish get really negative, Alexander explains that the best thing to do is switch over to a reaction style bait. As far as the cadence goes, Alexander will rip his cranks aggressively with large, fast sweeps letting it fall back to the bottom in between. If the fish are not eating, the key is to grab something big and loud from the tackle box and see if you can trigger reaction bites. Make sure to try to follow your line as it falls, walleye will often hit rippin’ raps on the fall so keeping your line tight can help you feel that little tick and know when to set the hook.
