Now is one of the best times to go.

Bottom bouncers are the go-to for most. I prefer cranks or jig and crawler. 

what depth would you start at? or do you watch the graph for an idea of where they are holding at?

This time of year, unless you fish at dusk or dawn, I suggest you fish just above the thermocline. Walleye stay close to the bottom or suspended  in trees. Finding them with sonar rarely happens.

Had a trip yesterday.  We caught 24. 6 of them keepers. Using jigging raps. 14 to 22 ft. Moving around till you saw them on the graph. Usually on the bottom to just above.  Drop down on them rip up let fall to bottom. Rip up again till one time you lift and there he is.

Good for you. It is vertical jigging time, although I tend to use spoons. I am surprised at the depth you had success. From mid August through to October, I never could find them anywhere but near the thermocline or suspended in timber.

Did you ever try a Silver buddy?
