your most used lure / presentation method

7 posts in this topic

What is your most used lure and presentation method you use for walleyes?

For me, it would have to be a a 1/8 oz orange/chart jighead with a yellow or clear chart mister twister and shiner on it. I troll at a moderate speed and jig near the bottom. I got a few secret methods I use when I have a finicky walleye toying with my line, but I don't want to give them all away grin.gif Its pretty basic but the key thing to remember is that the fish just don't care some of the times about the lure, but on how the way you present it to them.

Anyways, I thought I would post this because I havn't seen too many posts in the past with some good information/tips on fishing for walleyes.

Spinner rig trolled just fast enough to spin the blades. It works with minnows, leeches, and worms.

Traditonally I would say a trolling a spinner tipped with minnow, leach, or crawler. But this year I have had better luck with a green 1/8 out jig tipped with the same.

I have a tendency to change things depending on body of water, depth fish are at, water temps, etc.... I love jigging when the water is cooler/cold, switch to spinners & Lindy rigs when it warms up a bit, cranks are always a good option, and back to jigging when the temps start dropping. Of course clear water is different than stained, as color can come into play a lot with water clarity. I know that some of the jigs that work great on Mille Lacs won't do as well on Vermilion, and vice-versa.

Fishing deep is different than running the shallows, one I like to run spinners on a bottom bouncer or troll cranks, the other, well, I'm keeping that one to myself for now... shocked.gif

But there are exceptions to every situation and 'rule', and I'm always willing to try something that may not seem like the 'right' presentation or method if things get a bit tough.

      Finally making it up this weekend to the cabin since January.  Looks like hit and miss weather conditions over the weekend, but I'm hoping to get some decent time in the boat...as long as the father-in-law isn't cracking the whip too hard  . That's good to hear about the success in Frazier, Matt.  Always seems like we are fighting for walleyes, but I'm hoping to change that and try a few new spots this weekend.  Hope everyone has a safe and good fishing holiday weekend.

      We are from Indiana (land of terrible eye fishing). Staying in a cabin in the oak narrows June 3-10.  This is our fourth year fishing the big V, but have always fished the westside.  Never had great walleye fishing yet.  We normally stay father on the westside like around wolf Bay or Norwegian, so we wanted to find a cabin closer to the Eastside.  Figured the narrows would be closer so we can fish spots on the west side that we've already learned and also venture to the east where I've heard the walleye fishing is better for keeper walleyes.  I'm looking for any tips or locations to try.  Maybe someone could help us out.  It would be much appreciated.  Thank you

      There is spots in the parking lot for roughly 7 vehicles with trailers. When that's full, you can park on the side of the road leading up to the access (I don't know if it's legal but have never seen tickets given out nor have I received one). The access is fairly steep but  in good shape. A 16ft will go up/down and launch no problem. 20'+ fish houses can make it up and down.    The access on the south side (past the Bear trap) on Highway 71 has much more parking and is a flat landing with 2 docks.   Water clarity is good. Fishing is mediocre.

      Haven't tried fishing there but I would love to go there someday.

      Basskisser, You will love the lake. Compared to other sizeable lakes in MN the traffic is much lower.  Plus Vermilion has so much shoreline with great bays everywhere.  I always have a rod rigged with a Rapala DT6 in red crawdad color and another set up with a fintech jig and tube in either a crawdad brown or green pumpkin.  The Rap works great if you want to cover water and just bounce it down a rocky shoreline.  The tube is perfect for throwing under docks or submerged rocks that your sonar points out.  Good luck and have fun.  There is some great bass fishing on Vermilion.
