Now bear in mind that walleyes are open year-round in North Dakota, but for many across the Walleye Belt, the season is just underway. Regardless, Northland’s Jason Mitchell knows the spring-into-early-summer bite is in full swing and the sometimes-overlooked shallow crankbait – aka stickbait – puts a hurt on these aggressive, post-spawn, shallow ranging predators.
The Rumble Shiner shallow-diving crankbait is available in three sizes with varying diving depths. The #7 dives 4’ to 6’; the #8 dives 5’ to 8’; and the #10 dives 6’ to 10’. All are formed of balsa through the Heat Compression Molding (HCM) process and feature a welded through wire construction from the tie eye to the tail. This tight action elongated profile bait mimics forage such as minnows. Great for casting or trolling this bait works in a variety of situations. The Rumble Shiner is available in a multitude of colors, from match-the-hatch patterns to bright and vibrant custom paint themes. Features premium short shank treble hooks and an oval split ring on the line tie.
