Jacobs explained the spoil area, “the spoil is where they pour the dredging from the channel into an area. It has green weeds on the edge and dead weeds inside. The fish have been coming on the green weed beds.” They are hoping to just duplicate what they did yesterday for a weight.
Joe and John Giuliani are in second place by using their steelhead rig. It is a three-way with a sinker on the dropper and a six foot lead with a number one hook. They are hanging their worm long and dragging it downstream with the current. This is giving an appearance similar to a baby lamprey, which is what the fish are feeding on. The team figured this out when the walleyes in their livewell coughed some up. It is important to go the same speed as the current or a little slower to give the walleye a chance to come out from behind the rocks and grab it.
Denny Lantzy and Steve Vande Mark are currently in 9th place and hoping to make a move up in the standings. “We had good quality fish yesterday, but couldn’t get that kicker,” said Lantzy. They were primarily jigging on multiple spots. Each spot is only holding a few fish, so they are making very short passes and then moving on to the next spot if the fish aren’t there.
