White River Walleye On Worm Harness

Why many people avoid using worms and insist on artificial baits would make an excellent topic for a psycho-social doctoral thesis. I won’t be writing that. Instead, this article is intended as a primer for fishing worm harnesses in Tablerock and the other White River impoundments. What I will share comes from fellow walleye fishermen who have showed me a number of tricks. In particular, I want to thank Chuck Etheredge of Holiday Island, Arkansas. Chuck holds the Holiday Island Marina walleye record at 14.5 pounds, and he is the one who taught me about his harnesses for brush fishing crawlers.

Love fishing crawler harnesses.
Yep gotta hold the rod for best results. 
Also there is that moment of first pick up when you need to let them have the bait.
Crank of slack then sweep for a hookset. 

If its a bass or other species, that delay could loose you a fish, but walleye will hide and try to swim off and eat the bait. 

Nice article!
