Sometimes I like to try something new just to see what happens and record the video. I've used swimbaits, I've fished walleyes in the weeds, but I've never done both in September in North Dakota when most fish are out deep. And given most of my fishing time is on Lake Sakakawea, a super deep reservoir, weed walleyes are an option, not a requirement. But rather than another deep jigging rap video, I wanted to try something new.
