      Walleye Basics # 1
      BY    Sam Anderson
      As the tip of myTour Edition rod sensed a light tug from a creature below the clear deep waters of a typical "natural lake" I prepared for what could be a trophy of a lifetime.          Live bait rigging is a technique that is often under utilized. the simplicity that surrounds this technique seems to be one reason that many anglers overlook this tactic in today's high tech era.         The live bait rig or what I consider the  Rig consist's of the following 
          • Plain hook
          • Barrel swivel
          • walking sinker
          • rubber snubber
             When first starting to use the live-bait rig; drop your baited-hook, barrel swivel and sinker into the water. Once your sinker reaches the bottom; keep the bail of your spinning reel open and hold the line tight with your index finger. Now begin moving slowly with your Trolling Motor while you keep an eye on your electronics. As you mark a fish, slow your boat down and stop your bait in front of the fish you just marked. Usually hold for about five seconds and let your bait squirm. If you do not sense a "pick-up" then start moving again untilll you locate some active fish.          The idea behind using this rig is that you are going to present your bait in the most natural fashion possible. When fishing for walleyes you often times have to present the bait in a much slower or more natural fashion then when fishing for other species like bass or pike.          This technique is used at a much slower pace the other live-bait tactics such as the spinner rig and crawler harness. So when using a live-bait rig you will to want to have located a medium sized area that you believe holds active fish.  For example you have located some fish on a rock point with your electronics and are now ready to hang over the top of them. when presenting your live-bait rig you can use many different types of bait such as a night crawler, leech, minnow, or even a crawfish. As you present one of these selected baits remember to move extra slow if you are faced with cold front conditions.          You have just stopped to pause your bait after marking a fish on your electronics. You then feel a slight tug like someone is pulling your shirt. immediately let the line go that you have been holding in your index finger.  pause five or ten seconds depending on how aggressive the fish are. Close the bail of your spinning reel and get ready for the key step in live-bait rigging  **Setting the hook** Reel down untill your rod tip touches the water; then when you feel that the fish is still there... briskly raise your rod straight up untill the base of your rod is pointing at a 50 degreee angle. Then, reel your fish in and net it.           Setting the hook is the most crucial aspect of using a live-bait rig. make sure you have a rod and reel combination that is both sensitive and well balanced. I use a 7' Tour Edition rod with a E7-2 energy series reel. This combination does several things. 
  • First this rod & reel combination is very light weight so you can spend the whole day fishing without suffering from wrist fatigue.
  • Second, Tour Edition rods are one of the most sensitive rods on the market.   You will be able to feel evern very light bites when the fish are inactive.
  • The length to this rod and the soft tip allow for maximum hook-sets when using leaders as long as 14 feet.
  • finally sth smoothness in th E7-2 Energy series reel will alloow you to effectively back reel when you are landing those monster walleyes !

  • Whether you fish six days a year or sixty, the equiptment you use will dictate how succesful you are. especially on those days when many anglers say "They just ain't bite'n"
