Copper for Walleyes?

Recommended Posts

September 5 the walleyes were down 60 to 70 feet. Could not reach them with 10 color leadcore. I almost broke out my 209 and 300 coppers (45lb) I use for Salmon. But I thought I might not be able to detect a fish on. Any thoughts on using copper for Walleyes? Only way we could catch them was divers.

There we found suspended walleyes stacked up in the area 70 foot down. Action was slow with a Northeasterly blowing. The screen displayed large hooks stacked up to 85 foot out but the action was slow, only two
