If you plan on fishing for walleyes using nightcrawlers as live bait there are a number of walleye fishing rigs you can use. We will concentrate on how to use, and what spinner baits tipped with nightcrawlers to use in this article. If you are fishing walleye waters that are stained or muddy using a spinner bait tipped with at least 2 nightcrawlers at all times is a very good choice.!br>
Some of the most common spinner baits used for walleye fishing are listed below. Weight forward spinners are used for easy casting. When using this spinner bait, tip all hooks on this spinner with at least 2 nightcrawlers. Other spinners that work great for walleye are a mono line spinner with blades. These spinners are great for trolling over weed beds. You can get them in single or double hook harnesses. Make sure that you use at least 2 nightcrawlers with these spinners. Also when you use a multiple hook harness make sure when you hook your crawler, that you leave some slack in the night crawlers between hook 1 and two. Sliding spring spinners are great if you need to change hooks quickly. June bug spinners are a single hook spinner and hooked with two nightcrawlers makes a excellent walleye bait. Floater spinner multiple hook nightcrawler harnesses are great when drifting over shallow weeds. Extended arm spinners keep the hook away from brush when you are fishing thick brush areas and are great to use in flooded overflow areas.
The key to a good spinner bait is the amount of vibration they produce. Foe example if you are fishing spinners tipped with nightcrawlers in stained or muddy water with poor visibility you want to have spinners that give of allot of vibration. If you are fishing in clear water its just the opposite walleye prefer spinners with much less vibration. The amount of vibration depends on the style and size of the blade you are using. For example if you were fishing clear water use small willowleaf blade because they give off much less vibration then say a large Colorado blade. Not all blades are created equal. A Colorado blade has a 50deg pitch which gives off the most vibration. The next spinner blade is a Indiana blade that has a 40 degree pitch and gives off the second most vibration. The willowleaf blade has a 25 deg pitch and gives off the next least vibration and is the best choice for clear water.
Walleye spinners that are tipped with nightcrawlers and have a Colorado blade to create more vibration work best in low clarity water or at night. Walleyes have what is called a lateral line sense that can detect vibrations. In the late spring fish spinners with Colorado blades at a slow speed baited with at least 2 nightcrawlers.
In the summer use a willow leaf blade tipped with at least 2 nightcrawlers. To fish for walleyes using spinner baits troll or drift along breaklines. You can also drift and troll nightcrawlers over weed tops. The spinner blade works as a weed guard when trolling or drifting over weed beds tipped with nightcrawlers.
