Cranks For Walleyes

2 posts in this topic

Thinkin about heading out and trying some casting or trolling, as this is a method i haven't tried on the river yet. Which will work the best and where do i start? I prefer casting if that helps. Breaks, humps, points? Early in the day? If this doesn't work whats the sure fire presentation to boat some eatin eyes? Diggin through the freezer and noticed i was out of fish, hate it when that happens!! Especially when i was cravin some. Good luck to all this weekend!!

River newbie,

As for the sure fire way to catch them, if you find it let me know. I'd say in that regard there are better ways than others but all methods work at some time.

You likely know this, and are really looking for a solid presentation right now vs. sure fire. So I'd say trolling spinners with a fathead would be a great place to start and stick with for a few hours at least. A simple gold blade with seven red beads snelled on with a number six gamakatsu hook on a three way rig (bell sinker).

In terms of cranks I troll unnless you have them penned up then a cast can be more fun than you should be allowed to have.

Good luck

      Sometimes you need em that size.      You guys did push me over the edge so I had to go out Sunday afternoon.  Thanks for that.

      I was going to try to go tomorrow (walking out in metro) despite the rain which appears to be light and I have a portable. Are you concerned about the ice conditions deteriorating throughout the day?  Or just for the rest of the week?

      Wow that ice went fast fished below the dam in Cold spring today. 3 feisty pike that was fun. Where the landing is there was about 20 feet of ice at the access. i was hoping to get the boat out but not yet. If anyone see's the ice go out by the landing let me know. Would like to get out however by Friday have heard any where from 1 inch to 20 so we will see.

        Do those 6" filet knifes work pretty good for pan fish?
