Inciting the Bite
The Favorite Presentations of Walleye Anglers


There are various ways to catch walleye and every angler has their favorite way of reeling them in. There are couple presentations that you will hear brandied about when talk turns to fishing. Experimenting with these methods will make you a force to be reckoned with when it's time to hit the walleye waters.

Bait is an important component of any presentation and live bait often yields the best results. Minnows, nightcrawlers and leeches are the crowd favorites and can be paired with just about any method. The key to using live bait is to keep them fresh and hook them properly. Bait in good condition will move better under water. If you don't have the bait properly hooked, the walleye will take it without the courtesy of getting hooked.

The most popular artificial lures are crankbaits. These flashy, active hard baits do an excellent job of mimicking natural forage fish. They can be fished fast or slow with several different methods. Crankbaits aren't hard to work, but spending time practicing with them will help you learn how to maximize their usage.

There are many ways to present you bait, but there are three types that you might hear mentioned around the fishing hole. Jigging is popular among anglers because of its effectiveness, simplicity and versatility. Jigs are often paired with a vertical fishing method that puts the bait at fish level. The variety of colors and sizes that jigs come in can please even the most discerning walleye. Jigging works best when you let the lure hit the bottom and bring it back up in slow, jerky motions. The rise and fall of the jig is enough to drive a walleye to distraction until they just have to strike.

Another popular presentation is the Lindy rig. This set-up allows the live bait to move freely and naturally beneath the surface. This rig can be used in many ways, but backtrolling and drifting are the most common combinations. Keep your bail open when using the Lindy rig so that it touches bottom. As you troll or drift, keep the speed slow enough so that the rig is making consistent contact with the bottom. Keep your index finger on the line so that you can better feel any walleye activity, no matter how subtle. Give some line so that the fish has time to ingest the bait without detecting you before setting the hook.

The final presentation loved by walleye anglers is the 3-way swivel. This presentation is perfect for walleye that are spread out over an area because it allows you to cover more ground quickly. Although used primarily with faster trolling, the 3-way swivel rig can be slowed down to target neutral fish as well. A drop line keeps you bait at a specific distance from the bottom and in the strike zone of the fish. This presentation can be paired with either live bait or artificial lures with great results. Determining depth is the key to using the 3-way swivel effectively. In order to set your drop line you have to know where the fish are holding. This rig does work well when scouting for walleye; just keep track of which depths get the most response.

Walleye anglers all have their personal preferences when it comes to bait and presentation. Crankbaits and live baits are common favorites among the populace especially when paired with jigging, Lindy rigs and 3-way swivels. Take some time to explore these popular choices and you just might discover your own favorite way to incite the bite.
