Im coming up in a couple days, I want to target perch/tullibee but dont want to discourage any walleye. For a dead stick what is best? I know shiners are not always available, but just want a chance to get into some fish. Any input is greatly appreciated. Also plain hook or jig for dead stick? Or should I put out tip up in different depth? Hook vs jig tip up? Thanks for any info!

We use either fatheads or fairly large sucker minnows, both of which are much, much hardier than shiners. Shiners do work, but for me they usually aren't worth it.

Last weekend we did better on plain hooks than we did on jigs. Tough to know what they'll prefer the next time around, though.

I had two bites a couple weeks ago on Medium suckers. They were about 5-6" suckers that were getting hit, so they were probably nice fish but didn't land either one. Don't think my little number 4 hook was sticking out of the sucker far enough to catch something.

Last weekend I didn't have a bite on a sucker minnow but shiners were working well. I also didn't catch anything of decent size though.

Rainbow on blue moon glow teardrop jig. In 20 years of Mille Lacs rattle reels, that is BY FAR the best walleye bait. The bigger, the better. Especially after dark.
