Andrew Martinsen's Walleye Fishing Update

Using Leadcore to Catch More Fish

Walleye Fishing and Lead Core

Hey, Andrew Martinsen here. Trout and salmon anglers have recently adopted lead core fishing. However, it was originally devised for walleye fishing and is still a tremendously successful tactic for numerous anglers in search of walleye.

There are numerous brands and sizes of lead core. Mason, Kerplunk and Cabelas are some of the favorite brands, but there are many others. It is important to experiment a little and you will soon find your personal preference. The available weights are 17lbs, 27lbs, 36lbs and 45lbs. Predominantly, walleye fishing will require nothing lighter than 27lbs.

You will notice that the lead core is colored in sections; this is an excellent way to establish the depth. The full core is 300ft long and has alternating colors every 30ft. Subsequently, there are 10 different colors on the full core.

You will not be able to use lead core tactics in every body of water and in all conditions. Principally, it is found to be most productive when utilized during the summer months in relatively clear waters such as the large lakes.

In addition, anglers claim that lead core has benefits in cold water (as the fish are less active), during the early season, when there has been blustery weather in the preceding days, and in particularly difficult fishing conditions. Conversely, it is advisable not to use lead core in the middle of a pack, or when the walleye is aggressive, as you are likely to lose your lead core.

Similarly, you may encounter difficulties if you only run a section of the lead core. Subsequently, to guard against losing your equipment, and what could have been a prize catch, it is always wise to run out your entire lead core.

You may wish to use specific lures with a lead core, as, with all aspects of fishing, the right combination is key. Some anglers? recommendations include J-plug, magnum spoon, small hootchie and jawbreaker, mini disc and dolphin spoon.

In addition, it is advisable to alter your speed or marking a slow s-shape, this imitates the sort of motion that the feeder fish would perform. If the first part of the ?s? (inside curve) results in a bite, then you may find it useful to select a slower presentation. On the other hand, if it is the lower part of the ?s? (outside curve) that is successful, the opposite advice applies: set up a faster presentation.

Often, lead core is used in conjunction with planer boards and down riggers. These may be options that you wish to explore and can certainly offer pleasing results. However, it is recommended that you never use lead core with a lead clip or a tail rubber, as these can easily cause difficulties by jamming.

Lead core has been used for many years, but it is still seen by some anglers as an undiscovered gem. In fact, the potential of lead core is not recognized by all members of the angling community. Nevertheless, to a beginner to walleye fishing, the lead core technique comes highly recommended.

Great fishin to you!,
