abu garcia & shimano helped us control variables

In the past two issues, we evaluated 51 of the latest and greatest rods and reels, then shared our picks for our “Editor’s Choice” and “Great Buy.” In March, we covered baitcasting gear, in April, spinning gear. Now, we share our picks for the best paired combos. We reached out to two industry giants, Abu Garcia and Shimano, to supply control rods and reels for our testing. These companies’ commitment to quality-control and consistency let us get to know our 29 test rods and 22 test reels intimately. By having Abu Veritas casting rods (VTSC70-5) and Veritas spinning rods (VT-SS70-5) on hand, we were able to mount test reels to the control rods and isolate the reels’ features, and attributes. With Shimano’s Sedona 2500 spinning reel (SE2500HGFI) and Citica 200…

get bit on bottom bouncers

ONE OF the most important abilities any walleye angler can possess is the ability to present all available presentations to walleyes as conditions dictate.

Utilizing crawler harnesses with bottom bouncers is certainly in the top five of all productive presentations of any experienced walleye angler. However, many who have never run them might not know all that bottom bouncers have to r. There is more to these rigs than meet the eye. Let’s take a closer look. A bottom bouncer consists of a rigid, high tensile three-way wire running through a weight ranging on average from 1/2 ounce to 3 ounces. The weight is positioned approximately a third of the way down on the…

options galore

There are several baits and hook configurations to incorporate on the business end of a bottom bouncer. Single-hook spinners can accommodate a minnow or leach that will often outshine crawlers, especially if other fish like white bass keep picking crawlers off. Plastics do have their place when white bass and perch are outcompeting walleyes. Natural plastic worms will continue to put walleyes in the boat consistently and will stay on the hooks much longer than a crawler. Anglers fishing big water often will use treble hooks on the harness to increase hookups on big, aggressive walleyes. The best tip of all is when walleyes are nipping the tail off the crawler, simply apply a stinger hook to the back hook on the harness. (Anglers should always check their state’s fishing regulations…
