Catching Walleyes On Bellevue Wing Dams

Chris Burns owns walleye that like to camp out in front of wing dams and anybody who has tried to master such a skill knows how difficult it is. Finding the location of the wing dam is only one piece of the puzzle. Boat positioning and maneuvering once you’ve located them is the real challenging aspect. Living on the Mississippi has allowed Chris to spend ample time honing these necessary talents. The fish in the picture was caught on a wing dam outside Bellevue, Iowa using three-way rigs with a

snell, a bead and a hook with a crawler. It weighed in at nine pounds. Two smaller fish were caught using the same technique; an eight pounder and a four!
