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.

    • jobs and better paying jobs.   that's about it for me.  Sure there are some perks, but I'd give it up in a second if I could come close to matching my income in Grand Rapids. What sort of field are you in?   Anymore it's all indeed, monster, or some sort of online service.  Maybe a recruiter can place you in something, but it might be a sucky job.  I went to a recruiter a few years ago and they could put me a job in a few days, but it was sort of on the edge of my field and the job sucked.  Still, if I was in a pinch, I'd do that in a heartbeat over sacking groceries.   Nobody reads the newspaper and C-list is for sex work and scams.
    • Thanks for the advice, we do know the areas that we like have liked in the past. Cities is a vague reference as most people up here call everywhere down there the cities. We would be looking at the west metro area or nw suburb area.   Job on is the big thing right now ideally my wife could take a few years off to raise our boys as typically the "cities" pay is more than up here.. I have been looking but what is the best way? Indeed? Newspaper? Clist?   We we are a good distance in a way but we are close to our families. When we get company we get them for 3 solid days. Also once we had our twins it was more so they could see there cousins, aunts, uncles, and grandparents more often than 1-2 times a year.
    • The gdp is right around 18 Trillion Dollars.   Ten years of that, including even a little nominal growth is north of $200 Trillion.   So you are talking about 4.5% over ten years.     And that is assuming that these economists are able to forecast accurately.   We had other economists telling us about the "multiplier" where a dollar of government spending increased GDP by way more than a dollar.     I didn't believe them either.   
    • I put a few miles on this weekend as well. Out on the lake and back a few times. But, I was about a mile out!
