I'll be fishing Kabetogama the second week of June. I'm planning on night fishing this year & was thinking of trying a lighted slip bobber. I've heard the water temps are lower than usual this year & wonder if the walleyes will still be to shallow for this approach. Is the slip bobber a good approach or should I stick with tossing crankbaits? Thanks

I guess I don't understand the "to shallow" part of your question. At night in June thats just where I catch 95% of the walleyes in shallow water, or just under the surface in deeper water. If you think the walleye are in shallow, slip bobber them. Great way to catch a bunch of fish. My advice would be to look for anykind of bottleneck where most of the fish using an area have to pass through, like a narrows. Set up before dark and set bobbers at different depths. Cast one in shallow <3 feet. Put one in the 6-8 foot range and maybe one deeper. As the sun goes down concentrate on the shallow walleyes. Afterall they will be coming in to feed.
