I was from a boat. I launched at stateline. I’ve tried for walleye many times there and haven’t had much luck. I was using a kalins jerk minnow with a 1/4 jig head. I was a couple hundred yards up river fishing long jams.

Nice job AJ any size to those smallies? I was on the stateline bridge not too long ago trying for walleye. No such luck i did catch some nice redhorse tightlining though. Were you from boat if so where did u launch from? Im looking to take my boat on the kank more this year in search of smallies and walleye. Do u have better luck in indiana or illinois? Thanks for any reply

Fishing up and down Lasalle Portion of the Kank. Nothing was biting. May of gotten on the river a little late, but a gentleman caught a walleye right in front of us.. it looked like he was fishing wit minnows under a bobber.
