Walleyedmike Posted May 20, 2021 Share Posted May 20, 2021 Great article lmt out! I have been pretty lucky in meeting up with some really good Missouri walleye fishermen through another forum that is defunct now. They helped me a ton and let me hop in their boats to see how it is done. I don't do anything very different from lmt out. One thing he didn't mention when doing that dragging the bouncer on the bottom thing is you need to hold your rod in your hand when doing that. It prevents snags and helps feel the bite. Walleye like to follow your bait. I've found a lot of times they will grab that bait and continue swimming along with it in their mouth. With the rod in your hand, you can feel it load up a bit. I let the rod tip fall back a few feet and then set the hook. Like Tanderson, I tie most of my own rigs. I use slow death rigs more than anything. I use 12-15 lb fluorocarbon line. I use Quantom Accurist reels as the flippin' switch makes it easier to let line out with one hand on the rod/reel. Not sure what else is out there with a flippin switch? I bought a couple of Scheels 8'8" pro angler rods a couple of years ago and really like those rods for bouncing. We broke the tip off of one and got a full refund for a trade in, They didn't have those in stock, so I paid the difference in an upgrade, I think it's a proguide rod? Not sure as it is in my boat in Missouri. That rod is an awesome trolling rod. It feels five pounds lighter than the Pro angler rod, which is awesome holding a bouncing rod in your hand all day.
