Imagine you’re in great shape to win a prestigious walleye tournament, but in the remaining few hours of the final day, your livewell is dry and your hopes of holding up the trophy are fading fast. What lure will you pull out to get on the podium? Or imagine it’s late morning, and in an hour you have to light the campfire and start a promised shorelunch for your friends, but you don’t have enough walleye. What lure will you reach for to ensure you catch more?
Those are the questions I recently posed to six of Canada’s most successful walleye anglers. Not only are their answers likely to surprise you, they’ll also help you put more and bigger walleye in the boat.
