which ways do u like to fish for walleyes...even if its off shore....what baits/lures do u like to use....me personally i perfer drift fishing with a 5 ounce no-snag weight and have that about 3 and a half feet above the hook...this has proven to be very affective for me....and its not always walleyes that r coming up also....i have pullen smallies,largemouth,rock bass,pike, and numerous skillet sized crappies and bluegills and yes even one very fine muskie.....so i was curious about wat other ways people like to fish for walleyes...as u can see im not in a big hurry to change my way cause it works....but im still curious

I like to drift with a Lindee rig setup with a 6'+ snell, a 3/4 oz weight, colored hook (or plain) with a jumbo leech attached. (I don't like the prepackaged Lindee rigs you can buy in the baitshops, prefer to make my own)

I like to troll with a heavy jig (color depends on water clarity or whatever the fish just seem to like) and minnow. Vertical jigging also works great.

Shad Raps are another favorite.

cody,

Where I fish mostly, we got three rigs for 'eyes.
  • Plain colored Gamakatsus with sinker about 12" to 18"
  • Home made Lindy 3' to 4' Plain colored Gamakatsus with sinker to match
  • 1/4 to 3/4 (depending on wind) jighead.

    We switch up between lime green and metallic red. Usually tip with leech, fathead or shiner depending on the season. We will drift a rockpile or edge and mark hits on the GPS. We then backtroll up through the spot and drift down again.

    At night we will sometimes drag shadraps along edges. Good time for the big ones.

    Now on Mille Lacs, I usually do the slip bobber thing (still like using those Gamakatsus) or shadraps. Shadraps at night can be very effective.

    Without a doubt, pulling raps:

    - On the rivers, leadcore with SR5s and 7s.

    - Night trolling lakes: long line fireline with F9s and 11s.

    - Day trolling lakes: fireline with SR5s and 7s.

    No better feeling than having that rod nearly tear your arm off...

    In the beginning of the year, I ussually slip bobber fish on the edge of weeds and tips of points. I also troll slowly with a variety of raps along weed beds. Trying to get them in between spawning grounds and the bigger water.

    Later in the year I go back to the good old spinner with minnow, and a little later than that, a spinner with worm. I truly believe in spinners all year round as a sure way to catch them 70 percent of the time.

    During larvea hatch I go to lead head and white mister twister in the shallows, casting and retreiving.

    During the shiner run, I go at night along the shallow rocky shores with shiner colored raps. Retreiving them so they bounce of bottom, than stop, and repeat.

    Pretty much my fishing habits, with a few mixed around, and some experimenting with new techniques and equipment that i reead about or seen, or taught from the pros here.
