Episode 319: Cochrane Small Lake Walleye

Today the Mercury Marine Destination takes us to Cochrane in Northern Ontario. A run north in the Ram takes us to Cochrane Air Services for a fly in to one of the many lakes they offer. These smaller fly in lakes make it much easier to dial in success. But the more prepared you come, the better your success will be, especially when Walleye are the target today. Walleye can be fussy at times, but this technique is hard to beat at fooling these bottom huggers. It's always a treat to get on lightly fished waters and have them all to yourself, especially when the accommodations are comfortable and fully equipped. Dark water, small lake Walleye.
