Walleye spinner rig

Recommended Posts

A buddy caught this giant today on Truman while fishing a Crappie tournament. His partner lost one even bigger this morning. This will make you want to get out and get after them. 30" and just over 8 1/2 lbs

J15-- On the spinner rigs-- You show one of Worden's/Yakima Bait's Spin-N-Glos on one of the pre-tied rigs.  Spin-N-Goos by themselves are deadly effective at times. Tie a basic two-hook leader, add a smooth bead or two and then the Spin-N-Glo.  I used them in Washington State a lot...I especially like the newer versions with the Mylar wings instead of the rubber wings.  But they all work.  

Adding a float is a good thing as well. While, generally, they--unless you use a really large float--won't float a crawler, they do offer a larger target.

Thanks for the tips. The spin and glow were a little higher but looked good. I just picked up a couple of each style from the local outdoor store that I use to run. Figure I can see what works and then get more or start ordering what I need to tie my own rigs  

 Lmtout's father use to be a regular customer of ours and a very good fisherman. He helped me several times with some new items to add to my order since none of us at the store were walleye fisherman. We always carried the basics that people used early spring for below the dam and that was it. With his help over a year or two they now they have a pretty good selection from spinner rigs, bottom bouncers, cranks and plastics.

If you don't want to tie snelled, two-hook rigs, you can follow RPS's advice and use a single, longer hook.  In the mid-80s, Lindy sold a spinner called the Fuzz-E-Spin that used a lozenge-shaped float covered with a fuzz (to hold scent) and a single Tru-Turn hook.  The hook was long-shanked. You ran the nose of the crawler onto the point of the hook and kept shoving the worm up the shank, leaving an inch or two hanging.  It worked very well, and I caught a ton of walleyes on that set up. The only problem is that it takes a bit longer to bait than a two-hook rig.

I haven't been to Eberhart's in a while, and while there wasn't looking at walleye gear, so I'm not sure what they carry. Will have to check it out when we get back from the lake. 

That is a nice 'eye and I'm glad to see it from Truman.  When we moved to the area, my son gave me an old "fishing in Missouri" guide book. In it, under the Truman Lake chapter, it said that a 19-pound walleye was caught...it's nice to see that some of the same genes may still be around.
