I've caught some eyes with the longer powerbait worms. However, that was in the boundry waters where they will bite anything. Not sure if you could catch any metro eyes with em.

Ive caught my fair shair of walters while targeting bass with shakey head/straight tail worms and texas rigged ribbon tailed worms. Though I wouldnt say Ive caught enough to make it be a go to tactic for me.

That was probably my podcast from last year that you heard.

At times I love big plastics ---- I call them bass plastics because most of them are traditionally thought of as bass baits. They're great for fish in shallow water. Some of my favorites are 4 and 5 inch minnows, flukes, and swimbaits. Ringworms are a traditional walleye bait and work great. Even senkos will get bit by walleyes (I almost never use them for walleyes, only when I'm goofing around). I usually fish 1/16 to 3/8 ounce jigs, sometimes weighted hooks, and sometimes even unweighted hooks, so they work best in water less than 8 feet deep. 6 feet and less is ideal.

It takes a while to develop confidence in baits like that, but at times they can be outstanding.

alot of bass plastics can be used for walleyes, such as swimbaits (there was a segment on the infisherman show about using them) also when fish are holding shallow in weeds or wood, they will take lizard and creature baits very willingly. soft jerkbaits have been excellent producers of walleyes for me.

i have also caught some walleyes while using shakey jigs and worms around deep weedlines during the summer.
