Hey everyone I'm hoping to pick some brains here.

I'm new to walleye fishing and I'm having some trouble catching the darned things.

I'm just wondering if anyone would like to share their thoughts on tips, techniques, rigging, etc for becoming a successful walleye fisherman. I've tried a bit of Lindy rigging drifting with worms and Ive tried jigging with leeches all to no avail.

Thanks in advance for your thoughts.

Ah... the elusive walleye.

A lot of this is going to depend on the lake you are fishing. The water clarity, the depth, structure, temp, time of year... you name it. And then you need to look at the tackle for that particular lake and time of year... color, bait, type, etc. It really helps to know the body of water and what past experience has shown. That's why going to locals at any particular lake really can help.

If you could narrow down some lakes you would like to try, maybe we can come up with some answers. Right now on Mille Lacs, quite a few folks are using leadcore pulling raps and shads down to 30 feet and having some success. On Leech Lake, some have been reporting nice walleyes fishing the sand flats with jigs and rainbow minnows down to 25 feet. On Rainy Lake, reports show eyes in 24 to 32 feet being caught on the main lake over reefs using lindys and leeches along with jigs and crawlers especially in the mornings. Use quarter ounce jigs that are gold, blue and white or lime and orange.

Big Bite, I usually only get to fish close to my home. I live in Big Lake so that means I fish Mitchell and Big Lake. These lakes are very clear. I have used Lindy rigs with minnows and worms. I am wondering for such clear lakes what would be a good plan for both open water and hard water.

like big bite says, you need to know the lake. knowing where structure is key and using bait that the eyes see the most. you dont want to use leeches in a lake that doesnt have alot of leeches in it. eyes can b very picky this time of the year
