    take a variety of jig weights and types of tails .. you have to let the fish tell you what they want…

    Have caught them when there is still ice in places, must fish slow at those times, probably jig and minnow, as light a head as you can get by with. Also, tipping with a piece of crawler can work. If fishing a river, laying a chub on bottom is a good way, while casting your jig. If fishing out of a boat, your options increase, maybe vertical jig a blade bait. One of my favorites is a cast master with a dropper chain and treble, tipped with a minnow hooked through the tail. Works all year long. On a river, find your current breaks along with some rocks, and your set.

    Amen to those! I love to use Moxi plastics as well favorite color orange core or firecracker on a 1/8th also depending on current. Ripple shads are killer for me as well.

    Probably a minnow on a small jig would be my go to.

    My biggest walleye ever though was in the spring on a 1/2 oz spinner bait while casting for Pike.

    I used to get a few as by coincidence when targeting suckers and carp on half crawlers in the spring in eddys and creek mouths.

    Floating jighead tipped with a minnow for me. Kinda irrelevant though as I suck at catching Walters.
