Go To Walleye Rig?

Recommended Posts

I've used and had great success with topwater plugs (jointed rapala's mostly) for late night action.

 

Anyone have sucess with different rigs?

Like i mentioned in my post, topwater-jointed rapalas (specifically J9 & J11's, gold & silver) have worked for me at night.

I have used live bait & jigs also. Yes, Lake Hopatcong. There are areas of LH that walleye, LM's and occasionally hybrid SB are actively feeding at night and they will attack topwater plugs like crazy.

 

Try a nighttime fish sometime, Walleye or SB will suprise the sh*t out of you when they hit your topwater plug!

 

I was just looking for what others have had success with.


The hybrids put up a better fight IMO.

My brother lives in Clearfield county PA and fishes lake pymatuning in the northwest corner frequently for walleyes. He also fishes Curwenville Dam spillway for eyes...

In the lake he does very well on a basic worm harness spinner.

In the spillway he fishes small rapalas and jigs.

This time of year hes fishing the spillway mostly and using minnows
