Drop Shotting for Walleyes?

9 posts in this topic

Has anyone used this technique for walleyes? I know it's really popular with bass fisherman, but it seems like it would have applications for eyes too. Was thinking about throwing it into shallows with a gulp leech?

I've done it a little, mostly on deep/steep weed edges, or over deep mid-lake structure, or in current areas. In all the places I've used it walleye fishing I've done it vertically, I haven't tried throwing it shallow, but I don't see any reason why it couldn't work. I'd say give it a shot and let us know how it works.

On the river I've done it alot, #8 wide gap for crawlers/ #6 for minnows and a pinch on bb shot

Some friends of mine have dialed it in on the mud flats of Mille Lacs. It's fun watching them do it while I go "riggin' by".

I'm going to try it this spring for sure. It just seems that it would present the leech in a realistic manner, hopefully it works.

I use it in rivers when I want the bait to be stationary on the bottom but don't want to retie hook after hook after hook. Effective and economical!

    •   Exactly! As long as politics ( And trump) stick around old silly town will still be around. 
    •   I did consider texture changes as well and all I can tell so far is that folks sharing online recipes and photo's didn't have serious issues with that.  They did mention having to cook out absorbed liquid when they heated up the canned slices.  When I get around to my experiment I believe I'll do some jars with fatty slices and some with cased sausage.
    •     If it gets here anytime in the near future, del is either going to have to start making trips to Mexico or go visit Dr Juice..      

    • I'm thinking the same thing, it's coming.
    •     As of 2013, (four years ago) 58 percent were in favor of legalizing marijuana too, and the FDA and DEA haven't even budged...   http://www.gallup.com/poll/165539/first-time-americans-favor-legalizing-marijuana.aspx
    •   1.  You don't have to be Michelangelo to know that Jackson Pollock was a terrible painter. 2.  Yes, that's 100% true. 
    •   Actually he is a hypocrite in 2 different ways.   1. He called out someone else's skill but was unwilling to show us how it is done. 2. He likely only called you out because you are a liberal picking on his republican buddy. If someone like Uncle Bill had made that picture he would have probably just "liked" it and moved on.
    • Don't forget, single payer is what Trump was backing many years ago. He may be angling to get it now.   Think about it. As far a partisan politics go, this would be a genius move for the republicans if the think tanks could come up with a way to spin it to the base.    Whatever party passes single payer will solidify at least a couple of consecutive presidential terms like the Democrats did.
    • I don't think he's a hypocrite, even though I question his skills as he failed to even identify the tool I poorly used.  He's just capable of identifying objectively poor photoshopping and a tool for pointing it out.  There isn't much that can change that.
    •   http://www.gallup.com/poll/191504/majority-support-idea-fed-funded-healthcare-system.aspx   58% are already in favor of single payer. I bet after last week's fiasco, those numbers go up even higher.
