With these movements I suspect they are 1/2 oz. and higher. Finally some plastic bait were you using and the recommended colors. This information will help me in planning my 1st crack in this fishing

Jake and I had to work a row over the Detroit River walleye. We fished a mold called Bait Rigs Tackle Odd’Ball and size we thought were best suited to the 5/8 models. These are stand-up style jigs a nice job
of keeping the hook upright so reduces snags and fish cleaning hooked into the roof of the mouth to do. We gave the molds using a local soft plastic called Wyandotte Worm, which is little more than a four-inch finesse soft plastic worm. Brown was our best color Wyandotte worm. We also tipped with a shiner minnow. The minnow is optional and a good day when the bite is solid, most guys do not bother with the minnow.

the Detroit River is known for producing great
walleye as captured by Jake
Romanack early april.
The show was around filmed April 6 and generally the best fishing for big zander is at the beginning of April, when the water is still cold. Later in April, the bite is still good, but a higher percentage of bites are from smaller male walleye. Both Michigan and Ontario sides of the river have their days. Ontario is forcing a one bar line, and Michigan you can have three lines per angler. A lot of guys on the Michigan side will sift with two rods at once.

We launched at the Wyandotte municipal launch, but it is popular and often crowded. Plan to wait in line for at least 30 minutes or more on the weekend. Thanks Robert for viewing Fisheries 411. Good luck on the Detroit River. Look out for us, because Jake and I reflected on it again will be soon.

Best fish
