Walleye Fishing Strategy

Tips for Vertical Jigging

Hey, Andrew Martinsen here. The vertical jig is a much-recommended tool in the search for walleye. It is a reasonably uncomplicated method of fishing and, more importantly, it puts the fun back into angling. However, if you want to have more than just fun, with the right techniques and tactics you can land some prize walleye.

One of the first things to consider when using a vertical jig to fish for walleye is that, because walleye are often found in very deep waters, you will require a jig that is heavy enough to descend to the lakebed or riverbed and keep your line nice and taught.

Another pleasing aspect of vertical jigging is that it does not require a great deal of physical effort from the angler. You can, and indeed should, allow your troll or drift to do the majority of the hard work. Not only does this mean a more relaxing time for you, but it also leads to more success with the walleye.

However, that does not mean to say that there will be nothing for you to do. On the contrary, you may find that you need to make some small adjustments either to the way your jig is moving along the contours of the bottom or the speed that your troll is drifting.

In addition, you will need to keep an eye on the depth of the water and adjust your line accordingly. As the name suggests, vertical jigging requires that your line remains vertical throughout the period it is in the water. Having a good taught line will allow you to see any slight movements in the line that may indicate a walleye?s presence.

When fishing for walleye in deep water, the vertical jig is at its most effective. Vertical jigging allows you to fish for walleye that are concentrated on the bottom of deep lakes or rivers in a way that regular casting could not do. The vertical jig retains a steady contact with the lakebed and has amplified motion, which may be just the attraction that those walleye need. It is particularly recommended in waters that are a little murky, because the walleye is unlikely to be able to distinguish between your jig and a feeder fish.

In addition, the virtues of vertical jigging are to be found when fishing for walleye in hidden spots such as submerged logs, rocks or sandbars. The vertical jig allows you to explore these locations and, subsequently, catch some incredible fish that would otherwise be unobtainable.

As mentioned above, the tight line that is afforded by the vertical jig allows you to be much more sensitive to slight changes in movement. Most importantly, it makes it incredibly easy to establish when you have a bite.

Vertical jigging is highly recommended for walleye fishing in all kinds of waters, but the chances are you will predominantly use it in lakes and rivers. Therefore, a tip for lake vertical jigging is to cast your jig and let the wind guide your boat over submerged obstacles, where the walleye is likely to be. Similarly, when fishing in rivers, it is a good idea to allow your boat to drift slowly, while ensuring that your line stays vertical.

Great fishin to you!,
