Best Jig/Rig for walleyes.

Recommended Posts

I was just wondering what people like to use for walleyes that seems to increase there chance at catching more walleyes?

ive heard a lot about the chubby darter and i have a couple and they dont really work too well for me. maybe thats just me though.

I tried a chubby darter and it was fine. I much prefer the action on the jigging Rapalas, especially the jigging Shad Raps. They cost less than half as much too.

I like my green Angel Eye jigging spoon, but I'm a terrible walleye fisherman, so take that with a spoonfull of salt. But the 'eyes I have caught over the years have come on the Angel.

I have been using a buckshot rattle spoon with a fathead hooked through the tail and the walleyes litterally come running. I have had some fast and furious action in the metro this year incuding 6 tonight to 25". JMHO

I may have to try that cfollow. I have always just used a minnow head on my rattle spoon for jigging. But if you think about a fathead swimming around with that tail shaking the spoon..... well it sounds good anyway. Thanks for the info.

hey cfollow are you referring to a live fathead and jiggin the spoon occasionally but having a bobber set up on it as well to keep it suspended? Sounds like a decent idea

My secret is to jig a buckshot spoon with a minnowhead and have another pole close by with a minnow under a bobber. They come in to see what the noise is all about and then slam the minnow/bobber rig. Works like magic.

I love the smaller hot perch chubby darter tiped with a minnow. It seems to really attract fish thats when the second pole with a minnow and boober does the trick.

honda4life, buck-shot spoon 3/8 oz. tipped with a live fathead hooked through the tail end and constantly jigged. Once you call the eyes in let them tell you what they want some want it deadsticked others want it doing the shimmy the whole time. I let the camera show me what they want. They also love to hit it on the rise, I have yet to see an 'eye take it on even the slowest of drops.

I tried that chubby darter all weekend and it produced me one little perch thats it. so then i switched to a sweedish pimple with a 3" leader and a trebble hook with a minnow and they loved it! i have tried that chubby darter too many times and it hasnt produced for me...

      It is strange that the developers did not think of such a nuance. In any case, you need to place an ad on the labor exchange, where you will find employees for the company and they will work with you, only you will need to conduct a preliminary interview

      Creating an application for such a hotel would be the best option. Place your ad on the job exchange on the Internet, I know a few of these, then you can find developers for yourself and the work will go much easier

      You won’t have to search for a long time, rather you will need to choose from the options offered. Look on the Internet for all the available options, such developers usually have their own sites that have all the information you need

      I am sure that if you search in the google search engine you will find a company that is dedicated to that, but to be honest I have not much idea, I never planted the idea of something like that, from my ignorance it is very complicated, but maybe someone who have more notion of it can guide you and can even recommend a company with a good reputation that is dedicated exclusively to it, good luck with all that

      Haven't really targeted geese, think we've got 3 Ross geese a blue goose and one Canada goose. We focus more on ducks, especially when we can get them in the field. Greater and lesser Canada geese around but they are spread out tons of feeds but no large feeds

      Finally got the choirs done. Roofed a shed and built a woodshed. Most done by myself. Now's time to go fishing before the deer season.  Found some crappies tonight, caught 11, missed at least that many. West end. Skunked again, how'd you do, saw you heading out?

      The three on top of the pile are geese. Smurfy. 😉   +1 on the decent shooting!  Thanks for the pics.  This was one post that got me to log back in to spam central.   Going dark again….
    • smurfy
