EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO START FISHING TODAY
Walleye are found in rivers, lakes and reservoirs. In rivers, concentrate on areas below dams, in river bends, behind obstructions, and anywhere in slack water directly next to moving water. In lakes, concentrate in dark bottom areas in early Spring. As the Spring progresses, fish deeper weeds, rocky areas and land points.
Walleye are sensitive to bright light and are most active on overcast days and dawn and dusk conditions. Walleye feed actively at night.
Walleye prefer minnows, nightcrawlers, and leeches. Use the components in this kit to set up a bottom rig. Rigged grubs and spoons are excellent lures. Walleye best see brighter colors like chartreuse, white, orange, and yellow.
Walleye are shy. Keep noise and light reflections to a minimum. Fish many areas. Due to their schooling behavior, if you catch one Walleye, you have a good chance to catch more from the same spot.
The choice of rig and technique depends on fishing conditions.
The Clinch Knot is recommended for all rigs.
