  1. Casting action tails on jigheads has become one of the hottest techniques out there in walleye fishing. I've been using different plastics off and on trying to find something easier and more consistent than casting sticks. I love the art of stickbaits, but it's difficut to teach and on bright clear nights sticks don't work nearly as well. Until the last few years I couldn't find a swimbait that I could fish slow enough to really produce. The Keitech swing impact swimbait has changed night casting for me. The swing impact can be fished on a 1/16 ounce tungsten jighead so slow you can almost pause it, or on heavier jigs you can get the same presentation in deeper water. Most swimbaits require a heavier jig to keep them upright, and just can't be fished slow enough. I don't jig these swimbaits and simply slow roll them parallel to the structure I'm fishing. Last year I used these swimbaits nearly exclusively over sticks on my charters. This year because I can't do any charters I've put in some serious hours with a couple of the best stick fisherman I know and the swimbait in the hands of a 9 year old was more effective. My go-to color at night is the sight flash, and I've had success with the 4" swing impact up to the 5.8" fat. Here is a couple pics of the huge 5.8" on a 1/2 ounce j will jig with a 5/0 hook. Every single fish just chokes these baits. The bread and butter in shallow is the 4.5" on 1/8 tungsten jighead with a 3/0 hook. If you have any questions feel free to pm me and I have an affiliate code to share if anyone wants to try em!
  2. The closer you get the clip weights to the lure the more the lure will move up and down in the water column as your speed changes so it really depends on how much column you want to cover. There are charters that I've heard run clip weights less than 10 feet from the lure. Where I'm at the fish tend to be in a small band of the column so I put my clips in front of the lead core and fine tune the depth with the amount of backer I let out.

  3. I'm gonna make it out there someday but probably not when the bite here is so predictable...hard to leave a solid bite with a 5lb average literally in my front yard to drive across the state and get blown off! I'm buried with trips right now even if I wanted to go...thanks for the offer though!!
  4. Nice work guys! Sounds like it's heating up...
  5. I've done the 3 way thing too, but boy you can get a mess! I've had either great results or no results this year off riggers...if I could ever get my riggers to be as consistent as my boards I'd be onto something! I think I might try the rigger popping trick some...I've had that work but havent done it other than to routinely check for dragging small fish and keeping weeds off downlines
  6. Paul those eyes dont come easy! Been fishing tigers for a week and doing well, but now it's back to the eyes tonight...
  7. Im ready for eyes not horns! Sent from my LGLS996 using Lake Erie United Mobile App
  8. Ive been using Seaguar Blue Label for a couple years for all my leader needs, but Im thinking about switching to Blood Run for everything. Anyone using their mono, flouro, and braid mainlines?
  9. Nice! One of my customers picked up a slob on Otisco musky trolling around christmas going over 3 gps...lure wasnt that big though!
