Lipless crankbaits like the Rattlin’ Rapala, Rapala Rippin’ Rap, and LIVETARGET Golden Shiner Rattlebait are relatively new presentation phenomena for walleye through the ice. LiveTarget pro-staffer Roger Stearns really put this system on the map for super-sized walleye on sprawling Lake Winnipeg. Since that introduction, this vertical ice fishing presentation has expanded throughout the ice belt. Pro fisherman Alex Keszler is a perennial lure tinkerer and thinker. He presents his total system to catching walleye on this traditional open-water bass lure. Watch to learn how to work the bait, modifications that catch more fish, as well as electronics and equipment pointers to put more and bigger walleye on the ice this winter.
