Bottom Bouncer Success

Catch More Walleye Using Bottom Bouncer Tactics

If you are using spinners as part of your tackle, it is critical to have the right speed. If you troll too slow then the spinners will not spin, and will end up snagging on the bottom instead. If you plan on going to slow to use a spinner, you can always use a simple hook or tie a crankbait on the bottom bouncer roughly four foot behind the bouncer. This is great if you are fishing a structure which is vertical.

If it is windy or the waves are decent sized, a spinner may be a good choice along with a bottom bouncer. Bigger fish may get aggressive when the wind is whipping and the waves are crashing, and a spinner may be just the thing to get these Walleye to bite.

The biggest fish will usually be found on deep underwater structure, and a bottom bouncer is a great way to get to these fish.

Another great way to use the bottom bouncer is done with a single light weight hook and live bait.

Attach a single hook to a lead with about four or five feet, and then attach the minnow, crawler, or leech to the hook. Leeches are a popular favorite with anglers to be used with bottom bouncers, for a variety of reasons. One of these is that leeches live longer than other worms, and they continually swim. This works really well for deep water, like lakes and areas that are over thirty feet deep, as well as at slower speeds where a spinner will not function correctly. In this depth, you may experience problems using a spinner along with the bottom bouncer, because the bottom bouncer may not want to stay down near the bottom if you are moving fast enough in the boat to keep the spinner spinning.

Bottom bouncers have been proven that they work extremely well when it comes to fishing for Walleye. Some anglers will even go so far as to call this tackle the magic bait. Bottom bouncers work so well there have even been cases of painted bottom bouncers being reeled in only to have the angler find actual teeth marks in the paint because of a Walleye attack. Anglers like you and me may not understand why a bottom bouncer is so effective, but we do not need an explanation as long as the bait works this well. A bottom bouncer can be one of the most important pieces of tackle you can own as a Walleye angler.
