Walleye Tips
Gary Parsons
How to get your offering into the fish zone.
Gary Parsons

If you're seeing walleye suspended 6 or 8 feet off the bottom, and, yes, walleye do suspend, tie up an extra-long snell on 4-pound test line. Attach a floating jig head and inflate your nightcrawler with a worm blower. That should get your offering into the fish zone.

When you find walleyes holding over flat, featureless areas, they'll usually be scattered unless something specific is holding them in a given area. A crankbait is a good lure choice to cover the flats. It allows you to cover water quickly. If legal, multiple lines can be used behind trolling boards to allow you to cover a wider band of water.
