your most used lure / presentation method

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.

      Shorelines are starting to open, do you see the wood ducks?

      I agree with the others Tommy! I always enjoy your bits of wisdom and humor! Cliff

      They are all coming in from the main lake. Cliff

      We used to camp on hinsdale all the time. There is one spot on the south shore closer to the east end we stayed almost every time. It's got a big rock outcrop on a small point that slopes down to the water. The picnic table and fire ring are in the open up top. Wide open space and a good breeze will keep the bugs off you. Tent site is fairly hidden. That's the best spot we ever found. Only downside is boat parking. I remember tying up on a log off the the side so probably the same site mentioned earlier.  We stayed there a ton when I was younger and never had any bear encounters, but the bear boxes are there for a reason!

      I always wondered,  are the walleyes coming over the dam?   or are they swimming in from Pike?

      Why delete your post?  I actually enjoyed reading that story. Seeing stories like yours is half the reason I like checking out this site (I like to check out all the different lake boards on fishingminnesota).

      Hey, we need a little color and humor and Musky Tom does it best.

      Good info to me even. Cliff you can delete my story n junk. Most people don’t know me round here anymore n for sure the humor of life is of no interest. Under stand only want the facts mama. Just the facts. 😎 I endeavor to persevere.  Beef!

      The ice on the Pike River between the dam and the lake is opening up fast! Should be wide open in a couple of days at the present rate of melt! The DNR will be trapping walleyes soon!!!  The walleyes are already starting to move in! Pike Bay ice is  also starting to deteriorate quickly! Finally starting to look like we may get some open water for the fishing opener! Cliff

      These aren't campsites to bring your Ranger fiberglass or decked-out Lund into. They're better fitted for smaller 14-16 ft alum boats, something you can drag on shore. Though i'm sure you can figure out how to secure something bigger. Cliff is right, most have sandy/pebble shorelines to pull a smaller boat onto. Almost all of them are well-protected from the prevailing WSW wind. You're gonna get wakes rolling into shore from passing boats, though, as it's a pretty well traveled section of the lake.
