Dropshots aren't just for bass they're a simple and efficient way to keep your bait right in front of a walleye's face and know it's fishing in the strike zone the whole time.
They work all year round, but I don't think there's a better way to catch finicky, late-summer walleyes (on outside weed-edges and the tops of hard-bottom humps) that may be turning down other presentations....
Bonus points: If you’re fishing with your kids or someone who’s maybe not as experienced, this is the PERFECT way to help them catch a walleye without trolling. Few reasons being 1) the fish will basically set the hook on itself if they just start reeling, 2) don’t need to be a master at jigging cadences, and 3) the bait is always near bottom, but up off of it and in the strike zone.
‣ Amped Outdoors lithium batteries:
I upgraded my boat batteries to lithium this season and could NOT be more happy!
I went with Amped Outdoors' 36V 100Ah trolling motor lithium battery system (which is two 36V 50Ah LiFePO4 batteries in parallel). I was able to shave off roughly 140 pounds by running those 2 lithiums vs 3 lead batteries, and of course get some amazing run times:
Which also freed up an extra battery slot in my boat, so I was able to plug in this 100Ah beast (only weighs about 24-ish lbs) to exclusively run all of my electronics – fer dayzzzz – instead of running them off of my cranking battery:
