Re: River walleye

a 3inch smoke twister
When On shore just a slow steady retrieve
When on a boat I like to hang it over the edge and let it go to the bottom and slowly jig it off the bottom
I usually tip it with a little piece of crawler so theres a little tail

Re: River walleye

There is a great article in the Jan/Feb 2011 issue of PA Boater and Angler titled "Wintertime River Walleye Observations" by Jeff Knapp. unfortunately that particular article is not available online. I'd try to find a copy if possible.

Re: River walleye

We always use crawler harnesses and turn the boat sideways and just let them drag the bottom. We've caught a lot of walleye like that on the northern allegheny river (kennerdell area).
