I,m heading down to Bull Shoals at the end of this month, going too try to catch some walleye. I am a rookie at walleye fishing. Does anybody have any suggestions on what kind of a bait rig too use.
I plan on doin some jiggin and some trolling.
The Walleye fishing has been very slow to say the least. I'd concentrate mostly for crappie and bass and you'd actually might catch a few walleye's doing that. Talked to a guy a couple days ago that said he caught a few keeper 'eye's while crappie fishing.
my xperiance has been that the water is very very clear ..if the wind aint blown just to make a ripple...Good luck..I fished both Bull Shoals & Norfolk most my life but mostly for Bass & Crappie..a slow presentation is usually best for Bass its a power worm or a Jig & Pig. Cappie I use little Rapelas..end of month the Spawn should be getting ready so Bank fishing could be a blast..that is if ya get tired of trolling for Walleyes
Thanks Bean....We are going too fish for crappie and smallies also. We do pretty well on the crappie. Just don't get to fish for those eyes much. I have alot to learn. I have fished there the last 2 yrs. I really like it down there. It is a whole new learning experience. But we will give it our best shot. Who knows maybe we will meet on the lake. :cheers:
Drifting Minnow and Nightcrawler rigs, Stick bait's, swimmin' minnow jigs tipped with a lively minnow either flipped towards the bank and slowly retrieved back along or close to the bottom or bottom bouncing while drifting.
Just a few way's I've seen em caught.
Remember the lake is low and really shallow on the upper end. If you put in at Beaver you can make it up to the Barker Hole pretty easy, going down from there there's a hump in the middle of the lake infront Beaver Creek.
