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

      I think with the current forecast there will be ice fishermen/women on URL by the 20th. It'll be bitterly cold, which is excellent, but the snow puts a hamper on things...

      all good advice, but with first ice I will avoid going out in the dark until the ice is a thicker. Ice is never safe, play it smart. looking forward to getting out soon

      I also use braid for my decoys and suckers  I think I even have a steel leader on one of them and never had problem with them spooking,  I built a wood floor for my but and use PVC poles to hand my decoys, GoPro, spinner etc works great and can slide them out of the way when not in use.
