Re: New to walleye fishing
I spend the month of Oct. at Raystown targeting striper and pan fish. Never targeted lake trout or walleye, but have a fishing friend that targets lake trout by trolling large spoons behind a Luhr Jensen diver and trolls with an electric motor about 2mph, I'm going to try this method this Oct. I am told walleye at Raystown are tough, but that night time striper fishermen occasionally hook up on one. Have been told that if you want to targer walleye try in trough creek area of the lake.
Not a lot of useful info. but thats the extent of my knowledge.
Might be worth hiring a guide for a day trip and pay close attention to how and where he fishes.
If you spend enough time on the lake you will eventually learn to recognize the guide boats,and you can learn where to fish from observing, but not much as far as technique unless you actually hire one.
I am told Clappers Guide Service is a good guide to hire, never did hire him myself but some say he is not shy about telling you what he knows.
