Fishing the Rocky Bottoms

How to Pull in Walleyes for a Great Day on the Water

The first piece of advice for rocky bottom fishing is to never let your bait rigs drag the bottom. Doing so is asking to hit a snag and lose your equipment.

Instead, let your lure hover above the rock bed, skimming just over the top of the rocks and letting the sinker touch occasionally.

Use a lighter weight jigs with football heads. These jigs will snag less. Use a larger hook, too. A #4 is the most commonly used, but don't rule out using a #2 especially if you're using larger bait.

Another thing to check for is to make sure you have a sturdier fishing line than usual as rocks can knick and weaken the line. You may want to look into purchasing braided fishing line. The braids add strength but the line stays thin, making it abrasion-resistant.

Another fantastic line to use is fusion line-micro-fiber nylon is fused together to make a small diameter line but doesn't sacrifice strength. Fusion lines are easy to cast and provide limited stretch. Finally, fluorocarbon line-a polymer of fluorine boned to carbon-- is virtually invisible underwater and doesn't absorb water like other types of line. This line, however, does not float.

If you do get caught even when using the proper precautions, move your boat right over the lure, crank the line tight, grab the line in front of the reel, and pull it back like you are shooting a bow and arrow. When you let go of the line, the snap back will jar the lure loose. In case you were wondering, this is called the "bow and arrow" technique. It'll save you a lot of time, a lot of lures, and a lot of money.

A pole retriever is also something to consider if you invest a lot of money into your lures. These collapsible aluminum poles can reach out up to 12 feet and have a hook, a spring-shaped coil or a specialized plug knocker at the end help you wrestle your lure free. These may cost some extra cash and take some extra time to use, but it's a good investment if you want to cut down on visits to your local bait and tackle shop.
