Fish the “FISH” not the “SPOT.” Seasoned Rainy Lake walleye anglers understand that deep water reef fishing is a game of hide and seek. Spots (reef tops and edges) are often huge, sometimes covering half a football field or more. Simply fishing the spot might produce a fish here and there but your chances of dragging your jig over a school of feeding walleye and catching a limit are slim at best. Spend a little extra time before you drop that fishing line; keep your big motor down and scour the structure with your electronics. Once you have a school of fish located park directly over them or mark them so you can keep your bait in the fish and not just on the spot.
